In case you missed it, Netflix's hit series adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's comic book series Locke & Key finds itself in a very enviable position. With the second season having premiered less than two months ago, filming on the third season has already wrapped. So while we weren't surprised to learn today that Locke & Key will be returning in 2022, we did appreciate two pieces of news that came along with it. First, that Sherri Saum's Ellie Whedon will be a series regular for Season 3, with Ellie and son Rufus (Coby Bird) returning to Matheson. Ellie continues to be haunted by her time spent behind the Black Door while facing a new & ever more dangerous threat that looms over the town (first reported by Deadline Hollywood).
Now here's a look back at the full trailer for Netflix's Locke & Key, Season 2- but following it this time is the overview for the third season that was released today along with the previous news:
The Locke family uncovers more magic within Keyhouse, while a new threat — the most dangerous one yet — looms in Matheson with plans of his own for the keys. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), Locke & Key is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family. Locke and Key on Netflix is the television adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW Entertainment.
