Netflix's 'Locke & Key' gets season three: Details here
Horror series Locke & Key has gained massive popularity to impress Netflix just enough to run for three seasons as of now. Netflix has confirmed that there is a lot of addictive content in the pipeline to shock its audience and so, there is going to be a season three. The show currently has season one streaming on Netflix, season two will air in 2021.
Applauding co-showrunner Meredith Averill for her keen eye for true horror, the streaming giant has also signed an overall deal with her for other projects and TV shows. "I'm delighted to expand our creative partnership with Meredith Averill, a talented creator with a keen eye for best-in-class horror and supernatural storytelling," said Brian Wright, VP of Overall Deals for Netflix.
Locke & Key is based on the graphic novel series written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodríguez. The novel unfolds with supernatural incidents happening with a group of siblings, having Locke as their surnames, visiting their ancestral home called Keyhouse. In Keyhouse, secrets about the death of the siblings' father lie hidden through magical keys, unlocking which rises a mysterious demon.
The successful ongoing series is getting an exciting crossover special issue with DC Comics' The Sandman, and the new book is titled Locke & Key/Sandman: Hell & Gone #0. The series spanned from 2008 to 2013, with author Joe Hill getting an Eisner Award in 2011. Though its live-action adaptation is popular today, it had many pilots filmed and rejected before Netflix stepped in.
Experts, however, say the Netflix's adaptation is nowhere near the intricate, eerie environment created in the graphic novel series to frighten the siblings in the town named Lovecraft, a mark of respect for the great cosmic horror author HP Lovecraft. But, its safe bet of shaping Locke & Key on the tenets of tested, successful series such as Stranger Things have worked out well.
