Del Toro will serve as a writer and executive producer and will direct a few episodes as well.
The flexibility of Netflix combined with the wild mind of del Toro should create for a mind-boggling new series.
This collaboration with Netflix marks his second project with the streaming service, following on the success of the award-winning animated series Trollhunters.
Other than the "coming soon" promise, Netflix hasn't set a premiere date for the show, but summer is the best time to release a horror-thriller in theaters, so we are hoping Netflix follows suit. It returns this May 25 for its final season.

It will carry solar cells to charge up in the light of the sun and a heating mechanism to endure cold nights on the Red Planet . If the helicopter tips over during landing or falls out of the sky, it won't be possible to fix it from millions of miles away.
Fans of del Toro will know this isn't the director's first foray into horror TV.
For many cinephiles, del Toro is already a household name. His horror genre credentials are without question, including titles such as Blade II, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army. He also co-created the FX series The Strain, which ended past year after four seasons. The streaming giant has given De Toro a straight-to-series order.
How many episodes will Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight have? But if its structure is anything like Black Mirror, then anyone can supposedly jump in and start an episode without having to worry about multi-episode arcs.
It's worth noting that del Toro has a home in Toronto and frequently works on films there.
