LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS Volume 3 Trailer Gives Us A Taste Of Terror, Imagination And Beauty

Netflix has shared the first full trailer for Love Death + Robots, revealing the title of all nine episodes coming in Volume 3. The animated anthology series arrives on the streaming service on May 20th

With the third season of Love Death + Robots set to debut on Netflix later this month, the streaming giant has finally released the official trailer for the latest volume of episodes in the animated anthology series. It's been confirmed that Volume 3 of Love Death + Robots will consist of nine animated short stories. The trailer not only reveals the titles of each episode, but also provides a brief glimpse of them. Additionally, Netflix has shared the synopsis for each of the episodes.

As expected, each episode in Volume 3 differs drastically in both animation style, tone, and premise. We've got ancient evils, a rat uprising, and the first direct sequel in Love, Death + Robots history.

Returning to the series is writer John Scalzi with "Three Robots: Exit Strategies." The short takes us back to the post-apocalyptic future as the three titular robots try to deduce what wiped out mankind.

Producer David Fincher is also making his animation directing debut with "Bad Travelling," a short that takes us aboard a shark-hunting sailing vessel that's attacked by a giant crustacean. The episode is written by Andrew Kevin Walker and based on the short story by British sci-fi writer Neal Asher. Tim Miller is also heavily involved this season, writing and directing "Swarm" and writing the short story for which "Night of the Mini Dead" is based on.

Here are the titles and synopsis for each story in the soon-to-be-released batch of episodes in Love Death + Robots Volume 3:
