At RTX at Home, Rooster Teeth announced two new shows, Dead Little Roosters and Grudge Night, as well as apps for Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
During its RTX at Home virtual convention, Rooster Teeth announced two brand-new shows, as well as new living room apps for Roku and Amazon Fire TV — which will arrive alongside updated versions of its Xbox One and Apple TV apps.
The first new show announced by the Austin-based production house is the Rooster Teeth FIRST-exclusive series Grudge Night. Premiering on Oct. 7, Grudge Night is a tournament-style, video game competition series — the purpose of which is to settle beefs among members of the Rooster Teeth staff.
The second new show — which lacks an official release date for right now — is Dead Little Roosters, an interactive whodunit murder mystery starring various Rooster Teeth cast members. Dead Little Roosters is a spiritual successor to The Eleven Little Roosters — which itself was a follow-up to Ten Little Roosters — and even marks the return of showrunner Josh Flanagan.
Rooster Teeth also released an official trailer for Red vs. Blue: Zero — the upcoming 18th season of RvB — announcing its official premiere date.
Finally, Rooster Teeth’s new Roku and Amazon Fire TV apps, as well as its updated Xbox One and Apple TV apps, are slated to arrive sometime this fall. These apps will feature RTTV (currently only available on Rooster Teeth’s website), as well as a “My Library” and feature that lets users make their own playlists.
Trailers for the new apps, Grudge Night and Dead Little Roosters can be found below, as can Rooster Teeth’s full press release.

Here is a detailed roundup of announcements from RTX at Home FIRST Night:
Rooster Teeth’s newest show Grudge Night premieres October 7 exclusively for Rooster Teeth FIRST members. Good-natured competition has always thrived amongst the teams at Rooster Teeth, but in the background certain grudges have always simmered. In Grudge Night, these long standing grudges are settled over video game matches, tournament style.
Dead Little Roosters is coming soon to Rooster Teeth. A spiritual successor to 11 Little Roosters, Dead Little Roosters features a new cast of characters and is led by showrunner Josh Flanagan (11 Little Roosters, Day 5). A night of merriment turns macabre when a group of Rooster Teeth talent find themselves trapped in a mansion with a murderer in this hilariously interactive whodunnit.
Red vs. Blue: Zero premieres October 19. Red vs. Blue: Zero is written and directed by first-time showrunner Torrian Crawford (Death Battle). In Red vs. Blue Zero, a mysterious syndicate leader known only as Zero seeks an Ultimate Power, and a ragtag team of heroes and misfits called the SHATTER SQUAD must work together to save the galaxy.
