Love, Death & Robots: That’s why season 2 consists of only 8 episodes
The new 2nd season of “Love, Death & Robots” is much shorter than the premiere.INSPIREDTRAVELER explains the reasons for the shortened season.
“Love, Death & Robots” is back on Netflix, but Season 2 only consists of 8 episodes.
However, a third season is already in the works and will appear in 2022.
Here you can find out why the now released season is so short.
Netflix’s animated sci-fi anthology series “Love, Death & Robots” returned to the streaming service on May 14, 2021, with the 2nd season called “Issue 2”. Once again, Netflix subscribers can expect crazy short films full of violence, sex, and drugs, all of which run for around 10-15 minutes.
However, many fans of the sci-fi stories with a lot of cyberpunk influence quickly notice that the newly released second season is much shorter than the premiere edition: Instead of 18 episodes as at the premiere in 2019, there are “only” 8 stories – but why is that so?
“Love, Death & Robots”: Where is episode 9 of season 2?
“Love, Death & Robots”, as the trailer for the new season recently made clear, has already been extended for a third season, which is then consequently called “Issue 3”. The trailer announced this at the end:
“Love, Death & Robots” Issue 3 will then again consist of 8 episodes that will appear on Netflix in 2022.
That’s why “Love, Death & Robots” season 2 only consists of 8 episodes
Some nasty tongues are now claiming that all episodes from “Issue 3” have already been completed and that the streaming service Netflix is “holding back” a publication.
It is more likely that the new episodes from “Issue 3” are already in production, but not yet finished. With animation of this caliber, the production is associated with considerable effort. In addition, the corona pandemic has most likely also caused delays or difficult production.
A publication of 8 episodes at this point in time will therefore shorten the waiting time. Netflix has just published the episodes that are already finished. If, on the other hand, “Issue 2” of “Love, Death & Robots” had consisted of 16 episodes, viewers of the streaming service would have had to wait longer for them to appear.
