‘Love, Death & Robots’ Season 3 Release Date: When is it?
Gear up for another crazy ride because the third season of Love, Death & Robots is returning with a bang!
It seems Netflix really adore the series that it didn’t take time to greenlit the show for a third season, even when the second season was still airing.
The official declaration for the renewal of the third instalment came right at the end of the second’s season trailer. It’s more like a glitch and showed a short message that read: “VOL.3 2022.”

Love, Death & Robots Season 3 Plot: Expectations
Plot details are scarce and it put us in a very difficult position to predict as the show itself is an anthology series and each episode gives us a new story which is totally different from the last. However, that may not be the case anymore in the third season.
Series supervision director Jennifer Yuh Nelson in a recent interview via Reddit AMA disclosed that some of the old cast members will be returning in the new season who are the three tourist robots that appeared in the first season episode titled “Three Robots.”
“Three Robots” is inspired on a brief story jotted down by John Scalzi, who formerly worked with Tim Miller in the previous seasons of the show.
Tim Miller in a different interview also confirmed the comeback of the three tourist robots.
He said, “We definitely wanted to make sure that “Three Robots” came back, it was one of our favorites and one of the fan favorites.”
“John Scalzi is my go-to guy. He is a genius and a super nice guy and very into the show. I hang out with him even when we don’t have any show business to do,” Miller added.
