Guillermo Del Toro is set to follow up on his Oscar-winning production The Shape of Water with a new horror series on Netflix.

Each episode of 10 After Midnight will be curated by Del Toro with help from his writers and up-and-coming filmmakers. He will handle the writing and directing duties for some of the episodes himself.

10 After Midnight becomes the latest partnership between Del Toro and Netflix, after his successful animated series Trollhunters. The series will be the first horror anthology show on Netflix and Del Toro’s first live-action series.

The Shape of Water producer J Miles Dale will join Del Toro to assist with executive production along with Gary Ungar from Exile Entertainment. Currently, it is not known how many episodes there will be nor when the series will be released. However, considering the excellent work which Del Toro produced through Pan’s Ladybrinth and the Hellboy franchise, we can anticipate something worth watching.
