Love, Death & Robots released the trailer for the upcoming second volume. The often styled LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS, Netflix’s animated science fiction anthology launched its first volume of 18 episodes in March 2019. Tim Miller (Deadpool) and Oscar-nominated David Fincher as a loose adaptation of the iconic 1981 adult cartoon anthology of Heavy Metal. The first volume, Love, Passing + Robots, received cold reviews from critics who praised the series’ experimental structure in general but criticized its backward policy at times.
Currently, Netflix has released a trailer for the second installment of Love, Death & Robots. The trailer for this episode series introduces a series that returns to many of the same themes as the first season, but with a more contemplative tone. While the trailer for the first volume was an ardent look at the show’s high-concept violence, the footage in this trailer advertises slower, more human-centered stories. Even the trailer’s score for the next volume hints at a new degree of restraint, along with Colin Stetson’s sumptuous “Reborn” replacing the breakneck home beats that gave Trailer Number 1 a look. Check out the full Volume 2 trailer below.
After the next volume of Love, death + robots, the release date on May 14 is waiting for the screen at the end of the trailer, the third volume of the anthology is announced for 2022. Already promoting season 3, Netflix went all-in on the rendered anthology. With adult animated blockbusters such as the premiere of Amazon Prime Video’s Invincible, which will have high viewership during the pandemic, it is likely that the largely COVID-resistant genre will continue to shape an ever-larger market in the industry. Nonetheless, fans of adult animation may need to wait and see if Love, Death & Robots deserves a third install when the second amount hits Netflix next month.
