Netflix has officially renewed the adult-leaning animated anthology series Love, Death + Robots for a fourth season. It's creatively titled Love, Death + Robots: Volume IV.
With each standalone short employing a unique animation style, the anthology draws from many genres, primarily science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comedy. With their diverse storylines, themes, and voice casts, the only thing linking every episode together is their connection to the titular subject matters.
The Netflix series returned with a third season earlier this year, with nine more episodes spanning stories from robots' exploration of a post-apocalyptic city to a giant man-eating crustacean facing off against a shark-hunting ship's crew, and a cybernetically-enhanced grizzly bear developed by the CIA. Who can know what to expect from next season?
To date, the series has collected 12 Emmy Awards; Alberto Mielgo recently won the juried Emmy Award for best individual achievement in animation for his Season 3 episode "Jibaro". Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate), David Fincher (Mindhunter, Mank), Jennifer Miller, and Joshua Donen executive produce the series, with Jennifer Yuh Nelson as supervising director.
Love, Death + Robots is a re-imagining of Fincher and Miller's long-in-development reboot of the 1981 animated science fiction film Heavy Metal.
No release date for Volume IV has yet been announced, so stay tuned.
