The animated Netflix anthology took us to different thematic events involving a range of genres. Love, Death, And Robots, created by Tim Miller debuted on the OTT giant on March 15, 2019. The idea of the series comes from Miller and Jennifer Fincher’s 1981 animated science fiction film Heavy Metal. The film was in a long-haul development for a reboot. All the characters in the series are also based on characters by Richard Corben, Angus McKie, Dan O’Bannon, Thomas Warkentin, and Bernie Wrightson. Every episode of Love, Death, And Robots followed a completely different story. It featured a range of casts from different countries for each episode.
Love, Death, And Robots is a collection of animated shorts and stories exploring different genres. A series that takes a look at plots like alternate histories, life for robots, and many more accompanied by world-class animation and visuals. Despite its Heavy Metal influences, the series was applauded for creativity resulting in quite a positive response. Now the question remains if there is a second consecutive season coming for Love, Death, and Robots? So let’s begin by taking a look at what we know about Love, Death, And Robots and its second season so far.
Love Death And Robots – Expected Plot
Well, like the description of Love, Death And Robot say, it is an anthology after all. So we can’t expect a proper plot for the whole series. Each and every episode much like the first season will have a different story to itself. A story that won’t connect with other episodes in any manner. The first season saw 18 different stories presented in the show while 16 came from already existing short stories. Talking about plots for each episode, Tim Miller had given certain plotlines to the network so they can arrange episodes according to that. So far for the second season, there are no revelations yet. But, yes it may follow similar to the way the first season came in. Different stories from different mediums.
If we observe the first season of Love, Death, And Robots carefully, we may notice that each one carries a completely different genre. For example, the first episode of season 1 portrayed a dystopian London featuring remotely controlled bio-engineered gladiator beast battles. Then there was another episode that featured a story of a woman who witnessed a murder in an apartment across from her hotel. All these stories have a completely different plot and encompass quite distinctive genres from themselves. There will humor, violence, gore, and horror altogether here and there. The same can be expected from the second season of Love, Death, And Robots.
The Cast For Love, Death, And Robots
Season 1 saw an array of cast members for Love, Death, And Robots. But every episode of the Netflix Original had a different cast for sure. So we might expect them to return to voice some new characters. Anyway here are the cast members from season 1 who could return for a second consecutive season of the Netflix Original. Starting off with Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Topher Grace. Probably the only two who had live-action roles in the episode “Ice Age”.
The voicing cast may include Gary Cole, Chris Parnell, Omid Abtahi, John DiMaggio, Christine Adams, Josh Brener, and Jill Talley. Also, include Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Nolan North, Elaine Tan, Aaron Himelstein, Samira Wiley, and Stefan Kapičić. Well, as we said, it’s an anthology with new cast members every episode. So, there are chances that along with the existing members, there will be some new faces coming too. We will keep you updated.

Keeping the pandemic as a reason for delay aside, the production for a show like this tends to take time. The in-depth animation with the hands of multiple studios is why the show might be taking a backseat for the release date. Considering this timeline and of course the ongoing pandemic, the best we could expect the Netflix Orignal to arrive is at the end of 2021 or early 2022.
