‘Love Death + Robots Volume II’ Debuts a Trailer and Season 2 Poster

The upcoming second season of Love Death + Robots will consist of eight animated shorts and will arrive on May 14, 2021. Today, Netflix debuted a trailer for Volume II in which we get a brief look at the new episodes and the anthology series’ fantastic world inhabited by robots.

The Emmy-winning adult animated anthology series was created by Tim Miller (Deadpool). Miller recalled the critical response to season one after finally being able to bring his dream project to life on Netflix. “We couldn’t have been happier at the response to the show,” said Miller. “It was exactly the kind of passionate reception from animation fans David (Fincher) and I hoped for, but for many long years had been told wouldn’t happen.”

Oscar nominee Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2) joined the series for season two as supervising director. Describing the process of selecting directors for the individual shorts, Yuh Nelson said, “It’s a tonal and stylistic Jenga game, trying to figure out which director might best handle what story.”

In addition to unveiling a trailer and poster for Love Death + Robots Volume II, Netflix confirmed Love Death + Robots Volume III is expected to premiere in 2022 and will also consist of eight new episodes.
