It looks like people really do love watching robot orgies… Netflix anthology series Love, Death & Robots has been renewed for Season 2.
The first season of the show hailed from Deadpool‘s Tim Miller and David Fincher, and consisted of 18 short films from the sci-fi, comedy and horror genres that dealt with the themes love, death and robots.
There’s also news that Kung Fu Panda 2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson has boarded the show as supervising director for Season 2.
Nelson began her career in animation working on Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn as a director, story artist and character designer before moving on to work at DreamWorks Animation. There, she was a story artist for Madagascar, and helmed the last two Kung Fu Panda movies. She also directed the 2018 young adult sci-fi film The Darkest Minds.
“Love, Death & Robots is my dream project,” said Miller when the series was first announced. “It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
