Season 2 of animated anthology Love, Death + Robots begins on Netflix next week.
Show creator Tim Miller teamed up with director David Fincher after years of wanting to make adult animated features and short films at his animation house Blur Studio.
“We couldn’t have been happier at the response to the show,” recalls Miller. “It was exactly the kind of passionate reception from animation fans David and I hoped for, but for many long years had been told wouldn’t happen.”
For season two Miller is joined by Jennifer Yuh Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3) as Supervising Director.
Together they sought diverse animation directors from around the world, for a blend of styles and stories ranging from violent comedy to existential philosophy.
“It’s a tonal and stylistic Jenga game,” says Jennifer Yuh Nelson, “Trying to figure out which director might best handle what story.”
Friday May 14 on Netflix.
