Netflix has announced that they have renewed Locke And Key for a second season. The first season of the streaming giant’s adaptation of the comic book by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez originally premiered last month on 7 February 2020. Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak crisis currently gripping the world, that now seems like a lifetime ago.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Locke And Key showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said:
“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators.
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.”
It’s great news for fans of the source material, as an adaptation of Locke And Key was stuck in development hell for years before Netflix picked it up. It was notorious for being difficult to adapt, but I’d say that the showrunners have pulled it off, despite taking some liberties on the comics.
We still don’t have any details on Locke And Key Season 2, or even a potential release date yet.
