Love, Death + Robots Volume II Trailer Drops From Netflix

Apr 19, 2021

Love, Death + Robots Volume 1 added a new depth to the Netflix library as artists and film makers came together to offer unique stories exploring every corner of the sci-fi genre. Volume II looks to expand on these mind-altering stories as Netflix once again is bringing together visionary film makers to take viewers to all new realms of reality and mind-bending story telling.

Love Death & Robots is a blast of the future with its roots deep in the past. Show creator Tim Miller teamed up with director David Fincher after years of wanting to make adult animated features and short films at his animation house Blur Studio. When his directorial debut Deadpool hit big, they saw their opportunity and the anthology series found a natural home at Netflix. “We couldn’t have been happier at the response to the show,” recalls Miller, of the excitement around season one and the appetite for more. “It was exactly the kind of passionate reception from animation fans David and I hoped for, but for many long years had been told wouldn’t happen.”

For volume two, Miller was joined by Jennifer Yuh Nelson as Supervising Director. The Oscar-nominated director has vast animation experience – having worked in the industry for years and helmed Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3. Together they sought talented and diverse animation directors from around the world, for a blend of styles and stories ranging from violent comedy to existential philosophy.

“It’s a tonal and stylistic Jenga game, trying to figure out which director might best handle what story.”

-Jennifer Yuh Nelson
