Netflix and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Blade 2, Hellboy) have teamed up for new anthology series “Cabinet of Curiosities,” and Geeked Week 2022 just delivered a first look that reveals new additions to the all-star talent involved.

Guillermo del Toro’s “Cabinet of Curiosities” is a collection of live-action stories that Netflix says “is meant to challenge our traditional notions of horror.”

“From macabre to magical, gothic to grotesque or classically creepy, the eight sinister tales — including two original works by del Toro — will be brought to life by a team of writers and directors personally chosen by the Shape of Water filmmaker.”

The teaser, below, confirms previously unannounced cast members Eric André, Sofia Boutella, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Kate Micucci, and Charlyne Yi.

The anthology series also stars Rupert Grint (“Servant”), Luke Roberts (Dracula: The Dark Prince), F. Murray Abraham (Thir13en Ghosts), Glynn Turman, Ben Barnes, Elpidia Carrillo, Hannah Galway, Demetrius Grosse, David Hewlett, Tim Blake Nelson, and Sebastian Roché, alongside previously announced Andrew Lincoln (“The Walking Dead”), Crispin Glover (Smiley Face Killers, Back to the Future), Essie Davis (The Babadook), and Peter Weller (RoboCop).
