Arriving long after Halloween is over but worth mentioning is 1899, the brand new series from the creators of Netflix’s hit German series, Dark.

There’ll be 8 episodes of the horror series while Del Toro is involved with all of the episodes, some will be directed by some of the biggest names in horror. Among the directors to feature includes the directors of The Babadook, Splice, Mandy, and many more.
