Love, Death & Robots returns in May with more love, death, and robots

Get ready all you mature, messed-up adults!

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

The next season of Love, Death & Robots is just around the corner, premiering on Netflix on May 20. The adult animated anthology is full of hardcore “mature, messed-up” shorts, though the actual amount of love, death, and-slash-or robots definitely varies from short to short.

Love, Death & Robots comes from Tim Miller (Deadpool) and David Fincher (Fight Club). The first season premiered in 2019 and the second came out last May. Each season brings all-new shorts, connected with a loose sci-fi thread and animated in a variety of styles, from hyperrealistic motion capture to stylized 2D.

The new teaser mostly shows old shorts, but there are enough teases (ha) of the new animated shorts to keep us wanting more. For instance, it looks like the three robots from the first season are back, and this time they have a cat companion. Meow!
