LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS Volume 3 Episode Titles And Synopses Revealed Alongside Official Trailer

Ahead of its premiere later this month, Netflix has dropped the official trailer for Love Death + Robots Volume 3 along with the titles and synopses for all nine animated episodes

Netflix has dropped the official trailer for Love Death + Robots Volume 3. The latest batch of short stories in the animated anthology series continues to vary in animation style and tone while promising "terror, imagination and beauty."

Volume 3 will consist of nine new episodes and Netflix has shared the synopsis for each one. From uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, each episode in Love Death + Robots Volume 3 continues to explore the themes of the three aforementioned subjects.

In a first for the series, Volume 3 will feature the first sequel as "Three Robots: Exit Strategies" takes us back to the post-apocalyptic future and catches us up with our three beloved robots. Producer David Fincher is also making his animation directing debut with "Bad Travelling," which is based on the short story by British sci-fi writer Neal Asher. The Jerome Chen-directed short "In Vaulted Halls" is fascinating because it's made using Epic's Unreal Engine, a suite of real-time production tools primarily used for video game development.
