Love, Death & Robots was a huge hit among Netflix's subscribers. But was it good enough to get a second season? Let's explore.
The Netflix original anthology series 'Love, Death & Robots' is making a return to the streaming giant. It was created by Tim Miller and produced by David Fincher and consisted of 18 short unique animated episodes. It was well received and on June 10th, 2019, Netflix renewed the series for a second season. We've even gotten a couple of teasers but they all only feature footage from the first season.

Here's everything else we know about it so far.
The production time of the first season of 'Love, Death & Robots' was quite long. With that in mind, the new season isn't expected to hit Netflix very soon. However, we do have an idea about where production is based on a February 2020 interview from one of the composers Rob Cairns. In the interview, he said: “I’ve seen a couple of the Season 2 scripts and have started discussions with directors and started playing with sound."
"Some of the episodes were pretty much done by the time I even started at them," Cairns tells Inverse. "They actually had the animation in and we were waiting for the final scene assembly with all the effects and whatnot."
This signifies that the new season's production is full steam ahead right now. The expected release date for Love, Death & Robots is either late 2020 or early 2021.
