Love, Death & Robots is coming back to Netflix for a second season but predicting its release has been hard but now thanks to a leaked trailer, and the official announcement from Netflix, we can now confirm that season 2 is coming in May 2021. Below, we’ll be cataloging everything we know about season 2 including who’s involved and what we can expect.
Love, Death & Robots is a Netflix Original sci-fi anthology series created by Tim Miller and produced by David Fincher.
The series consisted of 18 short stories, all with their own unique animations and stories. Within hours of release the crazy and out-of-this-world series had sent the internet a buzz. Some have already dubbed the series as ‘The Black Mirror of animation,’ which tells you everything you may already need to know.
It pushes the boundaries of animation with a huge mix of stories and levels of graphic violence and sex. The series was also one of the first for Netflix to experiment with episode orders (although that wasn’t without controversy).
