If you’re a fan of Love, Death & Robots, you’re in luck, because Netflix has dropped a brand-new episode of the adult anthology series on YouTube. 

The episode, which can be watched for free, is titled ‘Three Robots: Exit Strategies’, and is the first direct sequel in the series’ history. It follows the events of season one’s ‘Three Robots’, which saw the three titular robots enjoy a sightseeing trip around a post-apocalyptic city.

That same trio are back in ‘Exit Strategies’, this time for to study post-apocalyptic human survival strategies “before mankind was finally snuffed out.”

There’s not long to wait for the arrival of the new season of Love, Death & Robots, with season three set to drop on Netflix on Friday, May 20th. Still, a teaser episode one day before never goes amiss.

There’s only nine episodes in season three, but I’m sure the series will cram as much existential pondering and haunting animation into that shorter runtime as it can.

The rest of May is set to be big for Netflix. Arriving one week after Love, Death & Robots is the long-awaited return of Stranger Things, back after an almost three-year hiatus. The fourth season will be dropped in two halves, the first half on Friday, May 27th, with Part 2 set to follow in July.

Part 1 should be plenty for now though: our heroes are fully divided, with the Byers family – including Eleven – having relocated to California, leaving the likes of Mike, Dustin, Max, and Lucas behind in Hawkins. Hopper, meanwhile, is incarcerated in a Russian prison, with escape seeming difficult.
