Guillermo del Toro working on anthology horror series for Netflix

Del Toro will write and direct certain episodes, as well as pick the writers and directors for the rest of them.

Fans of del Toro will know this isn't the director's first foray into horror TV. I suspect this will be pitched at a slightly older audience, though.

The new series will reunite Guillermo del Toro with The Shape of Water producer J. Miles Dale.

Del Toro will executive produce a new show of his creation titled Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight for the streaming company.

The animated comedy Animals will return for Season 3 on Friday, Aug. 3 at 11:30 pm on HBO. And because it'll be a horror anthology, it'll tap into a genre that is now severely underrepresented on TV and Netflix, so I hope this will fill a big hole and give fans something new for them to enjoy.

Del Toro's The Shape of Water, which earned four Oscars this year, including Best Picture, Best Director for del Toro, Best Original Score and Best Production Design.

Guillermo del Toro is a name that many are familiar with as the director has been responsible for directing quite a few supernatural/fantasy style movies, such as Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, and more recently The Shape of Water.

Netflix hasn't announced a release date for Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight as of yet.

In the meantime: ya think del Toro will do a Lovecraftian episode? In addition, he will hand-pick a team of top horror writers and new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.

It's worth noting that del Toro has a home in Toronto and frequently works on films there.
