It might not be Heavy Metal but David Fincher and Tim Miller have finally landed their mature anthology project. Netflix announces via TheHollywoodReporter that they’ve made a deal to make 18 animated shorts geared towards the adult audience in a new series titled Love, Death and Robots. Think Black Mirror or Twilight Zone. However, these will likely span the gauntlet of genres and they’ll cover both CG/2D animation styles.

Deadpool helmer Tim Miller and David Fincher have teamed up to create an animated anthology series aimed at adults, titled Love, Death & Robots, for Netflix.

The series will be a collection of 18 animated short stories that span the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres. Monday’s announcement promises characters such as “sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers” and “robots gone wild.” 


Netflix also revealed first official looks at the episodes on their Twitter account.

At OmegaUnderground, I revealed a massive breakdown about the history of Miller/Fincher’s unmade Heavy Metal revival they attempted to make for years at Blur Studio. The directors they attempted to get involved included Zack Snyder, Guillermo del Toro, James Cameron, and others. I’m curious if they’ll be reaching out those filmmakers to tackle shorts.

A drop date for the anthology series has yet to be made official by Netflix.
