'Love, Death and Robots' season 2: Release date, cast, plot and everything you need to know about Netflix's animated anthology series
Jennifer Yuh Nelson of 'Madagascar' fame has joined the series as supervising director. Each episode comes from different writers, directors, and animation studios.
Cyberpunk aficionados rejoice! 'Love, Death and Robots,' the adult-animated tech-anthology series will be back for a second season.
Season 1 spanned 18 episodes that used top-of-the-line animation to explain various genres of stories that included sci-fi, action, comedy, thrillers, and love stories, all with technology at the heart of it. The anthology series opened to rave reviews in March this year and scored a 77% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Here's what we know so far about the upcoming season.
Den of Geek confirmed Netflix has given the green signal for the second season of the anthology series but is yet to confirm the release date. The streaming platform is currently busy basking in the success of the recently released season 5 of 'Black Mirror' and it will be likely that 'Love, Death and Robots' may hit the streaming service sometime in March 2020. We'll keep you posted on any developments regarding the release date.
The first season had episodes themed around death, a post-apocalyptic world, alien species, and horror. And while the plot of the second season is still pretty much under wraps, it's likely that the series will continue in the same vein.
The cast for season 2 hasn't been announced officially yet. Last year's cast included Mary Elizabeth Winstead ('Monster Island'), Topher Grace ('Interstellar'), Gary Cole ('American Gothic'), Samira Wiley ('The Handmaid's Tale') and Stefan Kapičić ('Deadpool'), with Grace and Winstead appearing in live-action roles, rather than animated.
Variety reported that Jennifer Yuh Nelson has joined the series as supervising director. Her previous projects include, 'Spawn', 'Kung Fu Panda 3' and 'The Darkest Minds.' Nelson was also the story artist for the 2005 hit film, 'Madagascar'. It is yet to be confirmed if David Fincher, Tim Miller, Jennifer Miller, and Josh Donen, the executive producers of the first season, will return.
There's no trailer for the newly announced season yet and it is unlikely that the trailer will arrive until Fall. However, we'll keep you posted on any first look and trailer updates.
In an interview with Den of Geek earlier this year, Tim Miller, one of the executive producers, told the site the series was created so as to show the world the emergence of cutting-edge animation. “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," he said.
Each episode comes in from different writers, directors, and animation studios.
