Watch a Full Episode of “Love, Death + Robots” Before Premiere

Love, Death + Robots has made the first episode of season 3 available on YouTube before the series returns to Netflix. The episode, titled “3 Robots: Exit Strategies,” is the first direct sequel in the brilliant animated series’ history, hailing from the mind of sci-fi novelist John Scalzi. The three robots in question are on an educational tour, so to speak, studying the failed human survival strategies that were deployed before mankind finally fell.

The third season of Love, Death + Robots will feature 9 episodes, with co-creator and executive producer David Fincher directing his own episode, titled “Bad Traveling,” which follows a shark hunting ship that’s attacked by a colossal, highly intelligent crustacean. The new season will also feature an episode centered on an injured astronaut taking mind-warping drugs to cope with the pain of an epic moon landing fail, a zombie satire, and Kung Fu Panda 2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson (also a supervising director on the series) helming a tale about US soldiers fighting a mysterious enemy.

Love, Death + Robots has mopped up Emmys for its striking visuals, ambitious storytelling, outstanding editing, and achievement in animation. If you love your animation with a wicked sense of humor and very adult themes, there is probably no better show on TV. Even if you don’t love animation, Love, Death + Robots is so fearlessly weird and very often brilliant that it’s worth a watch.

Check out the full “3 Robots: Exit Strategies” episode below. Love, Death + Robots returns to Netflix on May 20.

Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:

Emmy-winning animated anthology Love, Death + Robots returns with a third-volume executive produced by Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) and David Fincher (MINDHUNTER, Mank). Terror, imagination, and beauty combine in new episodes which stretch from uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, telling startling short stories of fantasy, horror, and science-fiction with trademark wit and visual invention.
