'Love, Death + Robots' Volume 3

Netflix

Love Death + Robots returns to Netflix with its third season premiere on May 20, featuring acclaimed director David Fincher stepping into helming animation for the first time, and you can get a sneak peek at the action in a new trailer, below.

The third season of the Emmy-winning animated anthology series will include nine new episodes that cover everything from uncovering ancient evil to an apocalypse. It will once again continue to jump from genre to genre in each episode, covering fantasy, horror, comedy, and science fiction. Fincher executive produces alongside Tim Miller.

Read on for the specific episode info:

"Three Robotos: Exit Strategies," from Blow Studio, is the first direct sequel in this series. In it, the titular trio of droids return to study post-apocalyptic human survival strategies before mankind is finally snuffed out. John Scalzi writes and Patrick Osborne directs.

"Bad Travelling" features a shark-hunting sailing vessel that gets attacked by a giant crustacean, leading to mutiny, betrayal and even ventriloquism with a corpse. From Blur Studio, Andrew Kevin Walker wrote the script based on a short story from Neal Asher, while Fincher directs.

"The Very Pulse Of The Machine" sees an exploratory expedition on the moon end in disaster, forcing an astronaut to drag the body of her co-pilot with her as she tries to find safety. Meanwhile, she is also on a potentially mind-warping drug to deal with the pain of her injuries. From Polygon Pictures, this is a tribute to Moebius, based on a short story by Michael Swanwick. Philip Gelatt writes and Emily Dean directs.

"Night of the Mini Dead" is a story of an apocalypse in which zombies reign at the end of the world. It's also a bit of a globe-trotting episode, following the undead invasion from downtown Los Angeles to the Vatican. Robert Bisi and Andy Lyon direct and they also wrote the script from a short story by Jeff Fowler Miller. BUCK produces.

"Kill Team Kill" follows a 'roid-raging, adrenaline-fueled group of U.S. soldiers who face a new foe who is the result of a CIA experiment. Gelatt wrote the script based on a short story by Justin Coates, while Jennifer Yuh Nelson directs. Titmouse, Inc. produces.

"Swarm" centers on two post-human scientists who are studying a seemingly mindless insectoid-race. But obviously, things will go awry. Miller directs and also wrote the script, which is the first screen adaptation of Cyberpunk author Bruce Sterling. Blur Studio produces.

"Mason's Rats" is another apocalyptic-style tale, this time of a rat-pocalypse in Scotland. A grumpy farmer is forced to take drastic measures to deal with an invasion of hyper-evolved rodents. Joe Abercrombie writes based on another one of Asher's short stories, while Carlos Stevens directs, and the studio is Axis Studios.

"In Vaulted Halls Entombed" is set in the mountains of Afghanistan where a Special Forces squad has to recover a hostage. But in addition to terrorism, there is an elder god of ancient power to confront and probably take down. Gelatt writes based on a short story from Alan Baxter; Jerome Chen directs; Sony Pictures Imageworks produces.

"Jibaro" is a re-imagining of the folktake of a siren whose song lures men to their doom. But this time, when her sorcery doesn't work because the titular knight is deaf, she becomes obsessed with him. Alberto Mielgo writes and directs; Pinkman.tv produces.
