The first season of Love, Death + Robots ran for a whopping 18 episodes and received a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 77%. The website’s consensus reads: “This animated anthology has enough creative death to satisfy cyberpunk fans who love their robots to have some heavy metal influence, but the series’ lofty ambitions are often undermined by a concern by blood and excitement.
Similarly, Season 2’s shorter run of just eight episodes received even more positive reviews, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 85%. An IGN review argues that the second season needed more episodes, “even though its first season had too many. A shorter catalog is probably better here, as this year’s batch of stories features some recurring themes. That said, the series remains a delicious buffet of animated wonder and thought-provoking evil.”
Season 3 or “Volume 3” of Love, Death + Robots will premiere on Netflix on May 20, 2022, with a total of nine episodes. Although reviews of the season are not yet available, previous seasons earning high critical acclaim bodes well in the direction of Netflix renewals. The first two seasons of Love, Death + Robots were nominated for Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, and Volume 2 was also nominated for Golden Reel Awards and Visual Effects Society Awards.
Love, Death + Robots has yet to be renewed beyond season 3. However, creator Tim Miller and director Jennifer Yuh Nelson told IGN in April 2021 that if Netflix signed Volume 4, the team would be ready. to start. “Why would we stop doing this while they let us keep doing it?” Miller asked. “I love animation and I love animators. They are kind of a unique breed. It’s a real honor to be able to bring these people the project they never thought they’d get.”
Hopefully Netflix will give fans the revamp they deserve after the premiere of Love, Death + Robots Volume 3 on Netflix. Until then, you can check out the first two volumes and look for Volume 3 on May 20, 2022.
