Love, Death & Robots is an adult-oriented animated anthology series developed by directors David Fincher (Fight Club) and Tim Miller (Deadpool). Leading the animation production is Blur Studios, known for delivering some of the most epic video game trailers in industry history. Love, Death & Robots is comprised of eighteen animated shorts varying in length and animation technique with a total runtime of 185 minutes. The anthology is an orgy of science fiction, horror, fantasy and dark comedy.

Miller who is the co-founder of Blur Studios had this to say about the project:

Love, Death & Robots is my dream project, it combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.

Netflix has become a game changer in the world of original animated content delivering film, TV shows and anime that you would not find anywhere else. Netflix may be on its way to becoming the HBO of animation by creating content that would have been censored on traditional networks. Netflix gave a tease of what audiences can expect from Love, Death & Robots.

Sentient dairy products, werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders, and blood-thirsty demons from hell in an orgy of *NSFM (not suitable for mainstream) shorts…each film is painstakingly crafted, charged with a mix of energy, action, and unapologetic dark humor.


Two envelope-pushing directors working with a legendary video game animation studio to produce original animated content for adult audiences is the type of dream project no one expects to happen. I thought we’d reached the peak with the mature animated renaissance of 2018. Turns out, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
