‘Love, Death + Robots Volume 3’ Gets a Trailer Promising Dazzling New Stories!! Check It Out!!

Netflix‘s critically acclaimed animated anthology series Love, Death + Robots is back for Season 3, and the new trailer gives a dazzling look at what fans can expect—including executive producer David Fincher‘s first foray into directing animation. Since its premiere in 2019, Love, Death + Robots has garnered a number of accolades, including an impressive twelve Emmy nominations and eleven wins. Season 2 set the bar high with stories and direction by creatives like series producer Tim Miller (Deadpool), Simon Otto (How to Train Your Dragon), and supervising director Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2), but Season 3 is taking it to the next level.

The third season of Love, Death + Robots will feature nine episodes featuring stories about mutinous shark-hunting adventures, apocalyptic zombie satire, hyper-evolved Scottish rats, and siren songs that fail to lure a deaf knight to his death. This third volume will also feature the first sequel for the anthology series, coming in the form of sci-fi novelist John Scalzi‘s fan-favorite story “Three Robots,” which premiered in Season 1.

In addition to the exciting news about Fincher directing an episode, Volume 3 also marks the return of Alberto Mielgo, who won three Emmys for his episode “The Witness” in 2019. Newcomers to the anthology series include Joe Abercrombie, Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en), and Carlos Stevens (The Alchemist’s Letter). You can find the full list of episodes further down in the article.

The third volume will build on the signature wit and visual inventions that have perfectly combined terror, imagination, and beauty amid chaos caused by ancient evils and satirical apocalypses in the first two seasons. In the lead-up to the premiere of Season 3, Alamo Drafthouse is hosting free screenings across the United States to showcase highlights from Seasons 1 and 2, new footage from the upcoming season, and a Q&A with David Fincher, Tim Miller, and Jennifer Yuh Nelson, moderated by Collider‘s own Steve Weintraub.
