Locke and Key renewed for season 2
After years of being stuck in development hell, the series was finally released on Netflix in February 2020.
Netflix has renewed its supernatural horror Locke and Key for a second season.
The show’s official Instagram page confirmed the news yesterday with a post captioned “more keys, more demons, more aloha. Locke & Key is officially returning for season two!!”
The series is an adaptation of the popular comic book series of the same name by Joe Hill, son of horror legend Stephen King, and Gabriel Rodriguez.
It follows the Locke siblings, Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones) and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott), as they move to a new home following the murder of their father (Bill Heck).
They soon discover a collection of magical keys which give them a variety of special powers and abilities along with a sinister demon named Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira) who wants them for herself.
We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” said joint showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill.
“We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”
Netflix’s adaptation is the third attempt to bring Locke and Key to TV. Fox and US-only streaming service Hulu commissioned pilots in 2011 and 2017 respectively but both ultimately ended up passing on them.
The ongoing COVID-19 epidemic has caused production to halt on many Netflix shows so it’s not yet known when Locke and Key will return for season 2.
