Halloween heads, take note: The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is scheduled to premiere on Netflix Friday, October 12. The streaming giant has released a few images from the series, and it looks to be a good bet for viewers hoping to set the mood in the weeks leading up to All Hallow’s Eve.

Instagram star Christine McConnell stars, obviously. Netflix says the “wickedly talented baker and artist” will take viewers into her “terrifyingly delicious home to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor with the help of her colorful collection of creatures.” Henson Alternative, the Jim Henson Company spinoff that focuses on more grown-up entertainment, is in as a co-producer, so goblins, monsters, and other scary creatures in puppet form should be expected.

In addition to her work on social media and television, McConnell is a published cookbook author. A look at McConnell’s Instagram page shows some confectionary creations that are impressive in design. Amateur bakers may feel the need to indulge in some Nailed It if they attempt to execute these seemingly complicated recipes at home.
