Fresh off the heels of his Best Director Oscar win, Guillermo del Toro will put his horror roots to the test with the new Netflix anthology series 10 After Midnight. It's worth mentioning that del Toro (often through no fault of his own) has been associated with an impressively lengthy list of films, television series, and video games wthat never came to fruition. 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). The third season of Trollhunters will premiere on May 25, 2018. The series is billed as a collection of stories personally curated by del Toro "that are both equally sophisticated and horrific".

We don't have word about a potential release date or when production will get underway to film the new anthology series, but as soon as we get more news and updates, we'll be sure to pass that information as long as soon as possible. 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". In addition, he will hand-pick a team of top horror writers and new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life. He's recently branched out into blockbuster fare with the Pacific Rim movies and this past year won his first Best Director Oscar for The Shape of Water.
