— Show Description on roosterteeth.com

RWBY Rewind is a recap and discussion show introduced alongside CRWBY: Behind the Episode for RWBY Volume 5, hosted by Chad James and Yssa Badiola for season 1. Yssa is absent in the second season, as she joined the RWBY writers' room for Volume 6, and Chad was joined by Ellie Main and Jackie Izawa. Every week features a special guest from the RWBY team.

Broadcast live, at first on Tuesdays and later on Mondays at 5pm CT (10pm UTC), the cast discusses their thoughts and theorize what could happen next in the series - both Chad and his co-host(s) have been cut off from knowing the plot to avoid accidental spoilers and to engage with the community and discuss it together with zero knowledge of what's to come - while also discovering something about a behind the scenes aspect with the guest(s).

Episode 1 of season 2 was the first unlocked for non-FIRST users, and also available on YouTube.
