Netflix has announced the forthcoming third season of “Locke & Key” will be the supernatural drama series’ final run.
The series is based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s comic books and the decision to end it was reportedly a mutual one between Netflix and co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill.
They indicate the story was envisioned as a three-season arc. Cuse and Averill say in a joint statement:
“Once we began working on the series, we felt three seasons was the ideal length to bring the story of the Locke family and their Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying conclusion.
As storytellers, we are grateful that we had the opportunity to tell our version of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s incredible story exactly the way we wanted. We’re keeping the magical keys, though, for our own personal use.”
The series follows the three Locke children who, following their father’s death, move from Seattle to his family home in Massachusetts and discover magical keys hidden throughout the house that can be used to unlock secret doors.
Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Jackson Robert Scott, Petrice Jones, Laysla De Oliveira, Griffin Gluck, Aaron Ashmore, Hallea Jones and Brendan Hines star.
The second season aired in October last year with the third already completed filming and due to air sometime later this year.
