Years after a failed Fox pilot episode, which left the series sitting in development hell, Netflix has redeveloped the scripts and re-cast a new series based on Joe Hill's graphic novel series "Locke & Key," which will be arriving on the streaming service on February 7th, 2020!
Netflix has also shared the first teaser artwork for the highly-anticipated television adaptation of the comic book series co-created by Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics, which can be seen below.
"Locke & Key" revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
Carlton Cuse (“Lost”, “Bates Motel”) and Meredith Averill (“The Haunting of Hill House”) co-showrun the small screen version of the coming-of-age mystery about love, loss and the unshakable bonds that define family.
