RWBY: AFTER THE FALL Will Kick Off a YA Novel Series

I’m a big fan of RWBY. I’ve really enjoyed the show and wish it would showcase some of the side characters a little more. Now, it looks like I may be getting my wish. Rooster Teeth has teamed up with Scholastic to bring fans a series of Young Adult novels and the first one, After the Fall, appears to focus on Team CFVY. In the show we’re given brief glimpses of Team CFVY and they seem like awesome huntsman and huntresses, but the story never lends itself to tell us more about them.

After Beacon Academy fell, Coco, Fox, Velvet, and Yatsuhashi made a vow: No one else is getting left behind. It’s been more than a year since Team CFVY saw their school destroyed by the Creatures of Grimm, their friends felled in battle or scattered across the world of Remnant. Since then, they’ve been settling into life at Shade Academy in Vacuo, fighting hard to finish their training so they can reunite with their friends and save their world. When a distress message comes into Shade, asking for huntsmen and huntresses to defend refugees from a never-ending stream of Grimm, Team CFVY answers the call without hesitation. But in the heat of the desert, they’re forced to relive their former battles, both from the Fall of Beacon and from everything that came before.

RWBY: After the Fall will be written by E.C. Myers with help from the head writers of RWBY, Kerry Shawcross and Miles Luna. It will be available in 2019 with no word on any of the other novels. I’m hoping that they continue to follow some of the side characters. Which teams or characters should get a novel?
