Rooster Teeth’s ‘RWBY’ Series Finds Home At Viz Media With New Content Coming

RWBY fans, rejoice! Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang have found a new home with Viz Media after Rooster Teeth‘s sudden closure earlier this year. Showrunner Kerry Shawcross and Yang’s voice actress Barbara Dunkelman shared the exciting news on X/Twitter.

RWBY is an American anime-style web series created by the late Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. Set in the fictional world of Remnant, the series follows four young Huntresses-in-training—Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long—as they battle the malevolent creatures known as the Grimm and uncover dark secrets within their world.

Praised for its unique animation style, compelling characters, and dynamic fight scenes, RWBY has garnered a dedicated fanbase and critical acclaim, becoming a significant force in the realm of animated web series and expanding into various media, including manga, novels, and video games.

It was revealed that RWBY will continue its adventures under Viz Media‘s umbrella. Viz is also home to anime heavyweights like Bleach, Death Note, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Viz Media is no stranger to RWBY, having previously handled the RWBY manga and The World of RWBY book.

“We’re thrilled to work with Viz,” Shawcross said. “They’re as passionate about RWBY’s future as they are about its past”. Dunkelman added that the RWBY team is hopeful and excited about what’s next.

Viz Media will handle everything from production to licensing and consumer products. They’re committed to keeping RWBY’s spirit alive, ensuring that Team RWBY continues to fight the good fight.

As Viz explores new story chapters, RWBY’s social media pages will remain active. Shawcross and the team are ready to embark on this next leg of their journey. They promise fans that more adventures are on the horizon.

So, fear not, RWBY fans. The battle against the Grimm is far from over, and our favourite team is ready to take on whatever comes their way.
