Netflix is keeping the Keepers: Locke & Key has officially been renewed for Season 2, the streamer announced on Monday.
Based on the comic book series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, Locke & Key in Season 1 followed the Locke siblings and their mother as they moved into their ancestral home following their father’s death. The kids soon discovered the home is full of magical keys that may have the answers to their dad’s mysterious murder. As the kids continue exploring the house, a vicious demon is awakened and attempts to usurp the keys’ powers. (To read our Season 1 finale recap, click here.)
In Season 2, the stakes will be even higher as the Locke siblings fully embrace their roles as the new Keepers of the Keys. (An episode count has not yet been set.)
“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said in a statement. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”
