Netflix has greenlit supernatural drama “Locke and Key” for a second season, which is based on the comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez and comes from Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill. Debuting on February 7, the series follows Nina Lesser (Darby Stanchfield) after the murder of her husband, who is forced to move with her three children Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode from Seattle to Matheson, Massachusetts and take residence in his family home, Keyhouse. The children soon discover a number of mysterious keys throughout the house that can be used to unlock various doors in magical ways. However, they become aware of a demonic entity that is also searching for the keys for its own malevolent purposes.
“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of ‘Locke & Key’ alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said in a statement Monday. “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.”
A return date for the series is unclear as TV and film production remains mostly shutdown as the world grapples with the novel coronavirus crisis. The number of new episodes ordered has also not been confirmed.
