The series adaptation of Joe Hill’s iconic horror/fantasy comic series, Locke & Key, finally has a release date for fans to look forward to, along with a poster!
It has been a LONG road to getting an adaptation of Locke & Key off the ground. At one point (at the beginning of this decade) Fox had a pilot made for a potential series that never went anywhere. Then Universal tried to get a movie adaptation going when it acquired the rights to the property, even hiring some writers in 2014. THEN a second attempt at a series was happening at Hulu, getting yet another pilot (this time directed by Andy Muschietti).
Last year, Netflix announced they had picked up Locke & Key for a full first season order, giving fans of the comic some more tangible hope. Today, it’s time to kick those hopes up another notch as we FINALLY have a release date.
Netflix will debut the series on February 7, 2020, and has even delivered a quick poster for fans to enjoy. Now we just have to sit back and wait on a trailer!
After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father’s death. As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and will stop at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family.
