The anthology boom is alive and well on Netflix: The streamer announced Love, Death and Robots Season 2 is officially confirmed. The series comes from executive producers Tim Miller (Deadpool) and David Fincher (Gone Girl) and released its 18-episode first season in March. With technology at the heart of the show, it used varying animation styles to tell a variety of stories – among them sci-fi, action, comedy, thrillers, and love stories.
Taking over the creative reins for season 2 is Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who directed Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3. Nelson will serve as supervising director. Miller was the driving force behind season one. He’s currently working post-production on the next installment of the Terminator franchise, which he directed.
It’s unknown for many new installments will be including in Love, Death and Robots Season 2. In an interview earlier this year, Miller told Den of Geek that the series was created to showcase new animation talent: “I want to find new partners, I want to work again with the people we really enjoyed working with because the whole idea was supposed to be this creative jam session between all these different artists.
In our review of season 1, critic Daniel Kurland wrote that the series shows “a tremendous amount of promise. There’s a strong, fluid basis to this anthology series where I’d be very excited to see what a second season of stories could bring to the table.”
