The popular Rooster Teeth animated series, RWBY, is returning! After a long wait following the end of Volume 7 fans have been clamoring for a date when the show would return. Thankfully Rooster Teeth has not only given us a release date but a teaser trailer as well! You can watch that teaser below and we’ll have more info about the upcoming volume as well.

It isn’t much but for hardcore RWBY fans there’s a lot to dig into here that gives us enough clues to what could be coming for the franchise. The most concrete info in the trailer comes at the end when we learned what the release date will be for RWBY Volume 8!

The next installment in RWBY will launch on Nov. 7, 2020. That’s less than two months away and we’re sure some more RWBY content will drop between now and then to keep fans excitement levels at their highest. Rooster Teeth also provided a synopsis for Volume 8, which you can read right here.

In RWBY Volume 8, our heroes’ worst fears have finally been realized: Salem is here, and the timing couldn’t be worse for the divided Kingdom of Atlas. Fear has turned friends into enemies, while doubt threatens to splinter humanity’s remaining allies. With both Salem and Ironwood stacking the odds against them, and the fate of Remnant at stake, it’s up to team RWBY to make their play before it’s too late.

In a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, humanity’s hope lies with powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant’s protectors. 

The heroes of RWBY are going to have a lot to deal with in these Volume 8 episodes! How will they face up against Salem? We can’t wait to find out when Volume 8 drops in November!
