We are officially one month away from the October 14 premiere of RWBY Volume 5! The entire RT Animation crew has been making amazing happen every day, and we can't wait to show you what's in store for this volume.


This past year, we switched to a 7-day exclusive window for FIRST members for many of our shows, and we've greatly appreciated your viewership and feedback. (For more information on why we went this route, check out this journal post.) We understand and recognize that RWBY is a unique show with a unique audience, and we’ve been listening to all your feedback on the 7-day window as the year has progressed. We want to make sure we can help facilitate the community interaction and conversation around every episode. With your feedback top of mind, we decided to implement a 3-day FIRST-exclusive window for RWBY. So the schedule will be as follows:


  • Saturdays starting October 14 at 10am CT: FIRST members
  • Tuesdays starting October 17 at 10am CT: Free for all registered RoosterTeeth.com members
  • Saturdays starting October 21 (a week after airing) at 10am CT: Free for everyone on RoosterTeeth.com (and new episode premieres for FIRST members)

Once again, we are so thankful for your support and feedback as we try new things. Our community continues to impress us, and prove that you are the best group of people in the world.


And don’t forget, if you live in the US and want to see Volume 5 Chapter 1 even earlier, it will be in theaters around the US on October 12! You can get tickets here.


Stay tuned for more details of what's coming down the pipeline. We have an incredible year ahead of us! As always, send over your questions below and I'll answer them through the next day or so.
