Love, Death + Robots is gearing up for its return to Netflix with Volume 3 of the Emmy award-winning animated anthology series in just a few days, but is hyping up the new release by launching its premiere episode early! The first two volumes of the anthology series were a massive hit with fans thanks to how drastically different each of the offerings were from one another, and the second wave continued this trend. Now with the anthology making its comeback to Netflix with a new selection of animated shorts, fans are hoping to be blown away all over again.
Netflix has released the very first offering from Love, Death + Robots Volume 3 and it is already eschewing what fans can look forward to. Serving as the very first sequel offering in the anthology series overall. This first short titled Three Robots: Exit Strategies follows up on the Volume 1 offering “Three Robots,” which followed the titular robots as they explored a post-apocalyptic world. Netflix has shared this first offering on their official YouTube channel, and you can find it below:
Three Robots: Exit Strategies follows up on the initial Three Robots short from the first volume. Directed by Patrick Osborne, written by John Scalzi, and produced at Blow Studio, Netflix describes the first Love, Death + Robots: Volume 3 short as such, “The first direct sequel in Love, Death + Robots history – from the mind of acclaimed sci-fi novelist John Scalzi. The titular trio of droll droids return to take a whirlwind tour studying post-apocalyptic human survival strategies before mankind was finally snuffed out.”
Love, Death + Robots: Volume 3 will be streaming with Netflix in full on May 20th and this is only one of the new shorts available! The newest volume includes the returns of some major creators, an animated directorial debut from David Fincher, and more across its nine selections. Netflix officially teases the new volume as such, “Emmy-winning animated anthology Love, Death + Robots returns with a third volume executive produced by Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) and David Fincher (MINDHUNTER, Mank). Terror, imagination and beauty combine in nine new episodes which stretch from uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, telling startling short stories of fantasy, horror and science-fiction with trademark wit and visual invention.”
