Netflix has ordered even more Love, Death and Robots, following the success of its first collection of animated shorts.
The anthology of 18 films was presented by Fight Club helmer David Fincher and Deadpool director Tim Miller. The tales ranged from love and heartbreak to sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders and blood-thirsty demons from hell.
From 5 to 15 minutes in length, they also spanned a variety of genres, from 2D to photorealistic 3D CGI.
“Netflix’s dark sci-fi anthology is full of enthralling narratives and visual wonder,” we wrote in our review, “although its gratuitous nudity leaves a bad taste in the mouth.”
Indeed, the series was also criticised by many others for its presentation of women. Perhaps in response to that, Netflix has announced that all episodes of Volume 2 will be overseen by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, who has joined the project as supervising director.
