The third volume of Love, Death + Robots, the popular animated anthology featuring science-fiction shorts on Netflix, will premiere globally on May 20.
Netflix teased the upcoming season with a short video released on Tuesday (April 19) showing the same adult-oriented themes and wide variety of animation styles as previous volumes. The streamer also unveiled six first-look images from the new season alongside the video teaser.
Deadpool director Tim Miller will return as excutive producer for the new season, with David Fincher also receiving an executive producer credit.
Like the first two seasons, Love, Death + Robots will focus on telling short stories of fantasy, horror, and science fiction with trademark wit and visual invention.
According to Netflix's Tudum page, Volume 3 will continue to explore "strange, grotesque and occasionally beautiful new worlds, from stylized two-dimensional landscapes to some strikingly realistic CGI animation."
But the series will also be returning to a few fan-favorite destinations. The titular trio from Volume 1’s Three Robots have a central role in this teaser trailer. Fans can also spot some more imagery from previous episodes in the trailer, including snippets of Volume 2’s The Drowned Giant and Volume 1’s Alternate Histories.
Originally released in 2019, Love, Death + Robots found success on Netflix owing to its distinctive style, and has since racked up 11 Primetime Emmy awards across its previous two volumes. The animated series has nabbed multiple awards for outstanding individual achievement in animation and outstanding short form animated program.
