‘Love, Death & Robots’ Season 2 On the Way with ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ Director


Some great news for fans of Netflix‘s fantastic animated anthology short series Love, Death & Robots.

The streaming giant has officially greenlit another season of the sci-fi/horror series, as confirmed through Netflix Twitter account @seewhatsnext:

On board as supervising director and hired to oversee all of the season’s episodes is Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who directed Kung Fu Panda 2, co-directed Kung Fu Panda 2 and directed her first live-action feature with 2018’s The Darkest Minds. Nelson has a lot experience in animation, having also worked on The Real Adventures of Johnny Quest and the short-lived Spawn series.

From creator Tim Miller (director of Deadpool) and featuring an executive producer team that includes filmmaker David Fincher, the first season of Love, Death & Robots showcased 18 shorts with duration times varying between five to fifteen minutes each. Different animation styles were used throughout and eps were crafted from various animation teams around the world.

If you still haven’t seen it, we highly suggest you do yourself a favour and check out at least a few of the shorts. As Adam Fleet wrote in his review:

Like the best short stories, Love, Death & Robots leaves you wanting more, even though expansion would likely only diminish the quality. It’s a testament to how well written, and animated, this series is. […] Love, Death & Robots is rich in both storytelling and visual ingenuity, and is essential viewing for science fiction and horror fans.
