What Is It?
The 2019 American adult animated anthology television series Love Death And Robots (LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS).
Here is how Wikipedia describes this animated anthology TV show:
Love, Death & Robots (stylized as LOVE DEATH + R⬤BOTS, and represented in emoji form as ❤️❌🤖) is an adult-animated anthology streaming television series created by Tim Miller and streaming on Netflix. Produced by Blur Studio, it consists of stand-alone episodes that contain different narrative and animation and are produced by different animation studios from a range of countries, exploring diverse genres particularly comedy, horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Each episode is connected to the themes of the titular subject matter. However, not every episode includes all three topics. Miller serves as the showrunner and producer alongside Joshua Donen, David Fincher, and Jennifer Miller.
The series is a re-imagining of Fincher and Miller’s long in-development reboot of the 1981 animated science fiction film Heavy Metal, which was originally planned to follow the feature length format of the original film but one that could be better adapted for the new generation. The project however was in development hell for eleven years, until Netflix agreed to be the distributor of the project but instead of a film it would be released as a television series. The series premiered on March 15, 2019, with 18 episodes under 20 minutes long.

“Militarized werewolves, interstellar aliens, demons from hell and more are unleashed in 18 NSFW animated stories.”.
