American supernatural horror drama web series developed by Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill and Aron Coleite, Locke and Key released on 7th of February 2020. The show received acclaim of the way it portrayed loss and trauma and visual effects which were beyond amazing.

Story So Far
Without giving any spoilers, here’s a summary of what season one was about. The story begins when Former student Sam Lesser murders Rendell Locke. Now, his wife Nina and their three children Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, move to Massachusetts. They shift to Rendell’s family home, the Keyhouse.
Soon, the three kids find several mysterious keys throughout the house that can be used to unlock different doors in magical ways. But they someone else is also equally interested in the keys. A demonic entity that is also in search of the keys for its own interests.
Season Two Updates
Since the show got its release a few days ago, an official update regarding season two is yet to come. Usually, Netflix takes two to three weeks to announce such updates after the launch of a new series. However, the second season is most likely to air next year in February.
In an interview, show creator Carlton Cuse revealed “Things are not going to be ideal at the start of season two. That’s exactly how one should want it as a storyteller. Dodge has turned out to be even more daunting than they could have ever imagined”.
He further added: “But at the same time in season one our kids have come to learn that they are the new keepers of the keys. It’s their responsibility that goes with that. Both sides have stepped up their game for what’s going to happen in season two.”
One thing we certainly hope to see is the origin of keys. More keys could also feature as the book mentions many keys that haven’t featured in the show yet. Season two is definitely going to be very interesting!
Season one is currently available on Netflix!
