The world of Locke & Key isn’t going away soon. Netflix has renewed the supernatural-horror drama series for a third season, ahead of the second season’s 2021 premiere.
Based on the comic books by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Jackson Robert Scott, Petrice Jones, Laysla De Oliveira, and Griffin Gluck. The story follows the Locke family — mother Nina (Stanchfield); eldest son Tyler (Jessup); daughter Kinsey (Jones); and Bode (Scott), the youngest son. The family moves into their mysterious ancestral home in Massachusetts after the gruesome murder of the clan’s patriarch, Rendell (Bill Heck). The kids discover that the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Unknown to them, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
The first season of 10 episodes was released in early February of this year and Netflix renewed the series for a second season at the end of March. The streamer often renews series within 6-8 weeks of a previous season’s release.
The third season renewal announcement was made on social media earlier today.
