Netflix has made it official that they are making a Volume 2 of Tim Miller’s mature animated anthology series Love Death + Robots and dropped the announced on one of their Twitter accounts.

TheHollywoodReporter adds that Kung Fu Panda 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson will take on the role of supervising director on the second volume. Jennifer is no stranger the mature end of animation as she worked on HBO’s fantastic Spawn series directing and designing on the animated miniseries, which I would consider the definitive adaption of the comic book character and highly recommend checking out.

Jennifer Yuh Nelson, the director of Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3, will join the series as supervising director for the second season — or “volume,” as the show’s producers call it. A release date and episode count for the new run has yet to be determined.

Nelson began her career in animation working as a director, story artist and character designer on Todd MacFarlane’s Spawn at HBO. She later moved to DreamWorks Animation and worked on films including Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, Madagascar and the Kung Fu Panda franchise, directing the latter’s two sequels.

A release date has yet to be announced.
