The show is a collection of curated genre-defining stories that are meant to challenge traditional ideas about horror. Netflix calls it "from macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy." There are eight installments in total, including two by del Toro. Although we don't yet know the titles for the episodes, one that del Toro wrote the story for is directed by Kent and stars Davis, Lincoln, and Galway. The other is directed by Navarro and stars Nelson, Carrillo, Grosse, and Roché; Regina Corrado wrote the story for this one, based on del Toro's story.
The ones del Toro was not as intimately involved with, story-wise, were done so by people he personally chose, though.
Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities is created and executive produced by del Toro and executive produced by J. Miles Dale and Gary Ungar, with Regina Corrado serving as co-executive producer.
While no premiere date has yet to be announced, Netflix confirmed the show will premiere within this calendar year of 2022.
