Guillermo del Toro is teaming up with Netflix for a new horror series, 10 Past Midnight, in which each episode will tell a “personally curated” story that will be as frightening as they are compelling to watch.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker will be working on the series predominately as a producer, but it is said he will also write and direct “selected episodes,” as well as handpick an array of other talents to work on the show.

This isn’t the first time the streaming service and the director have collaborated. The visionary behind Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water is currently the producer of Netflix’s successful animated series Trollhunters, which returns for a third season on May 25.

The series is Toro’s first major project since winning best director and best picture for The Shape of Water at the Academy Awards earlier this year, following 13 nominations. Producer J. Miles Dale and Gary Ungar of Exile Entertainment are set to join del Toro as an executive producer on the upcoming project.

If it’s got one jot of the frights we saw in Pan’s Labyrinth and an iota of Shape of Water’s elegance and touch of Old Hollywood, 10 Past Midnight will be a series to be proud of. It’s an understatement to say that anticipation is high on this one!
