Locke and Key Already Renewed For Season 3 Before Season 2 Release In 2021
While some of the viewers have criticized the series for toning down many of the horror elements as compared to its source material, the show has been well-received overall.
It has drawn comparisons to the Netflix giants like Stranger Things and also The Haunting of Hill House. Given the success the streaming giant has had with those series, the renewal of this series seems like a no-brainer.
While it is going to be a while before we see it, Netflix’s confidence in Locke and Key bodes well for the show’s future.
Besides, series executive producer and co-showrunner named Meredith Averill has signed an overall deal with the streaming giant for TV and other projects.
News of the renewal of the show comes ahead of the debut of the second season of the show, which is all set to launch next year.
Production is wrapping on the second season this week in Toronto, with production on the third season set to kick off in early 2021. The second season of the show was announced back in the month of March.
