Locke & Key took 12 years to reach our screens, and this journey has been “painful” to say the least, so it would be a shame if Netflix cancelled it after just one season.
Fortunately, a season two renewal seems very likely. Showrunner Carlton Cuse told that the writing team have already started working on new episodes, “even though it hasn’t been green-lit,” so this bodes well for the future of Joe Hill’s story on screen.
While it’s likely that Locke & Key will be renewed for season two, Netflix hasn’t confirmed this just yet. If it does, then new episodes may take longer than a year to arrive following season one’s premiere on February 7, 2020.
Network shows tend to follow an annual cycle, but genre programmes like Locke & Key sometimes take a bit longer, particularly on Netflix, which makes us think we won’t see season two until mid-2021 at the very earliest.
Cast members likely to return are Jackson Robert Scott as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones as Kinsey Locke and others.
One thing we’re hoping to see in season two is the origin story of the keys. In the books, we discover that back in 1775 a group of rebel soldiers during the War of Independence come across the Black Door, a portal to another dimension. A dark place, lots of mood. The demons that try to escape that dimension into our world turn into – bear with us – whispering lumps of metal, which the soldiers turn into keys with magical powers.
Trailer And Upcoming Details:
Netflix hasn’t even confirmed that the show’s returning officially just yet, so don’t expect to see any footage until 2021 at the very earliest.
An important fact that just can’t be ignored is that Ellie never got a death scene. Since Ellie is not dead, Locke & Key season 2 has its doors open for her entry. We all know the cardinal rule of TV shows and movies – nobody is dead unless it is documented on screen, gruesomely.
Maybe, a rescue mission will bring her back. Her disappearance will be a significant clue to learning what happens behind the Black Door. Perhaps her return shall reveal all the questions left unanswered in the show presently. Stay connected for more updates.
