Episode 1 premieres this October.

Hulu and Blumhouse, the studio behind Get Out, Split, and The Purge, are partnering for a monthly horror anthology series, with the first episode expected to be released in October.

The 12-episode Hulu original will air over the course of a year, with a new episode premiering each month. While each installment in the currently untitled series will have a self-contained story, “some narrative device or structural device is expected to connect them,” according to Variety.

“At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activateable audience in terms of horror,” said Hulu Chief Content Officer Joel Stillerman. “It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre.’ I would say this falls squarely into the horror bucket.”

Competitor streaming service Netflix has found success with its unique anthology series, Black Mirror, which recently released its fourth season. Meanwhile, Amazon is set to release its own sci-fi anthology series, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, on January 12.
