Netflix’s NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series Love, Death & Robots is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and for anyone wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more titillating and sometimes gruesome sci-fi stories, the short answer is yes.
Love, Death & Robots Season 1 was released on Netflix in March 2019 and offered 18 different tales ranging from 6 to 17 minutes long, each telling a unique story with a different animation style. The series is produced by Deadpool director Tim Miller in collaboration with David Fincher, and it’s easily one of the weirdest TV series on Netflix.
Watching Love, Death & Robots is a feverish, bewildering experience that feels like a collision between two of Netflix’s other series: Black Mirror and Devilman Crybaby. Like Black Mirror, the series delivers an anthology of unconnected stories that lean towards science fiction, so there’s no chronological connective tissue. And akin to Devilman Crybaby, it veers into hyper-violent, over-sexualized sequences that dazzle and bewilder. Even that fails to capture the variety of genres and narrative styles that Love, Death & Robots grapples with.
For anyone mature enough to appreciate what Love, Death & Robots is going for, they’ll devour these 18 episodes in no time at all — and they’re going to want more.
Will Love, Death & Robots get a Season 2? What can we expect from it? There’s no point in predicting the plot of an anthological series like this, because future episodes could literally go anywhere and do anything within the realm of fantasy and science fiction. And there’s little reason to suspect that there’ll ever be a direct sequel to any previous episodes.
Nonetheless, here’s everything we know about Love, Death & Robots Season 2:
WILL LOVE, DEATH & ROBOTS GET A SEASON 2?
Yes! In a June 2019 tweet, Netflix’s See What’s Next Twitter account confirmed that Love, Death & Robots was picked up for a “Volume 2” and that Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2) had joined as supervising director to oversee all episodes.
Reviews for Love, Death & Robots were overwhelmingly positive, and even though Netflix rarely releases streaming numbers for its series and movies, it seemed like the series was widely watched based on chatter over social media.
