Del Toro will put together a team of writers and filmmakers to bring the stories he selects to the small screen and Variety reports that a premiere date and an episode count haven't been settled yet. Netflix already hosts del Toro's animated series Trollhunters, which will soon air its third season. This will be the first horror anthology for Netflix, which recently announced an upcoming RuPaul comedy series, a star-studded animated film about robots and an adaptation of Stephen King's novella In The Tall Grass.
