Grab your keyring of magical door-openers: Locke & Key is heading back to Netflix. The series adaptation of writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodríguez's IDW comic series won over fans with its first ten supernatural episodes, leading to the Locke siblings — Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) — getting a quick renewal at the streamer.
Now, fans are getting a first look at the show's second season. It's time to go back to Keyhouse Manor and this time, audiences need to prepare themselves for custom made keys and giant arachnids.
Showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill have adapted or introduced a slew of fun keys with secret powers, leading to tons of dramatic twists and turns for the show to take as it massages the comic story into a TV format. The world of Locke & Key has already expanded with the promotion of Aaron Ashmore (Duncan Locke) and Hallea Jones (Eden Hawkins) to series regulars and the addition of Brendan Hines (as history teacher Josh Bennett) and Liyou Abere (as Bode's new friend Amie Bennett).
Check out the teaser below:
The siblings, now the Keepers of the Keys in full swing, have plenty to deal with this time around now that they know (a little) about the powerful artifacts under their watchful eyes.
Darby Stanchfield (Nina Locke), Petrice Jones (Scot Cavendish), Bill Heck (Rendell Locke), Thomas Mitchell Barnett (Sam Lesser), Coby Bird (Rufus Whedon), Jesse Camacho (Doug Brazelle), Asha Bromfield (Zadie Wells), and Griffin Gluck (Gabe) co-star.
"The army's growing bigger — that's how it feels," Stanchfield told Entertainment Tonight around the release of the first season in early 2020. "Honestly, it kind of reminds me of Stranger Things when they [referring to the Demodogs] multiply. This is the first thing I thought of. Now there's two, not just one."
"In this season, you know Dodge; the demon, Dodge. But there's a whole world of demons out there and she's just one of many," added Jessup during the joint interview. "What will new ones be like? Do they want the same thing?"
Cuse, Averill, and Hill serve as producers alongside Aron Eli Coleite, Chris Ryall, Lydia Antonini, Ted Adams, Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs, Lindsey Springer, John Weber, and Frank Siracusa.
Locke & Key returns to Netflix Friday, Oct. 22.
