Guillermo del Toro Horror Anthology Series '10 After Midnight' Ordered By Netflix

Guillermo del Toro Horror Anthology Series '10 After Midnight' Ordered By Netflix

After a successful collaboration between Netflix and Guillermo del Toro on the animated series Trollhunters, the streaming giant and the Oscar-winning filmmaker are now set to work together on a live-action series.

You say "anthology" and we immediately think of The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits, but del Toro might spring for a more Alfred Hitchcock Present or Tales From the Crypt sort of vibe.

Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight is a Netflix production.

Grab a flashlight: Netflix and Oscar victor Guillermo del Toro will be telling scary stories at 10 After Midnight.


The flexibility of Netflix combined with the wild mind of del Toro should create for a mind-boggling new series. The third season of Trollhunters will premiere on May 25, 2018. It was also confirmed that Del Toro will reteam with "The Shape of Water" producer J. Miles Dale, who serves as executive producer, along with Gary Ungar (Exile Entertainment). Del Toro will write and direct select episodes of the show, while other installments will be written and directed by talent handpicked by the visionary behind "Pan's Labyrinth" and "The Shape of Water".

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.

No word on an official release date or episode descriptions yet but hopefully one episode will take place in del Toro's home. He'll also hand-pick a team of what Netflix describes as the genre's best writers and new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.
