About the Netflix series
While Locke and Key will continue with Season 2 and 3, it did have a long and troubled path to the screen. Talking to Variety earlier this year, Averill and fellow co-showrunner Carlton Cuse spoke about the issues. In fact, the series took off well.
Locke and Key is based on the IDW Entertainment comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabrielle Rodriguez. The story tells of a family whose father died in mysterious circumstances. Following their father’s death, three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse. The children discover the house is full of magical keys. As the children explore the keys, they discover their unique powers. However, along the way, they also awaken a mysterious demon. This demon will stop at nothing to steal the keys from the children.
Locke and Key stars Connor Jessup, Jackson Robert Scott, Emilia Jones and Darby Stanchfield. Other cast members include Laysla De Oliveira, Petrice Jones, Aaron Ashmore and Griffin Gluck.

Brian Wright, VP of overall deals for Netflix spoke about the series. He said, “Carlton and Meredith have built an incredible world in Locke and Key.” He said how excited they are to have the Lockes return for more in the third season. Wright is delighted to expand their creative partnership with Meredith Averill. He called her a talented creator with a “keen eye for best-in-class horror and supernatural storytelling.”
Other executive producers on the series are John Weber and Frank Siracusa for Take 5. Kevin Lafferty, Joe Hill, Chris Ryall, Ted Adams and Lydia Antonini represent IDW. Meanwhile, Andy and Barbara Muschietti, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs represent Circle of Confusion.
Cuse said they have some “incredible adventures in store for the Locke family in Season 3.” He said they “couldn’t be more excited” to continue telling their story with their great partners at Netflix.
