Netflix has resolved to return to Matheson for more time in Keyhouse: the Netflix adaption of Locke & Key has officially been renewed for a second season.

Based on the comics of the same name by Gabriel Rodriguez and Joe Hill, the series stars Connor Jessep as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones as Kinsey Locke, and Jackson Robert Scott as Bode Locke, with Darby Stanchfield as matriarch Nina Locke and Laysla De Oliveira as the insidious villain Dodge. The series also features Petrice Jones as Scot Cavendish, Griffin Gluck as new Matheson resident Gabe, and Hallea Jones as Eden Hawkens.

The official Twitter account for the Netflix series announced the news earlier today:

Fans of the first season of the series are sure to be thrilled at the news, which will follow up on the magical events in progress in Matheson, Massachusetts. Will the Locke family be able to successfully fend off Dodge’s attempts at seizing control of the irresistible magic keys of Keyhouse, or are things about to get really messy in Locke & Key’s second season?

For those who have yet to watch the first season of Locke & Key on Netflix, now is the ideal time to catch up (and considering it’s unclear how the current COVID-19 production delays may affect the arrival of the second season, you may have time to read the original six-volume series – and maybe even Locke & Key: Hell & Gone, the upcoming crossover with The Sandman – before the second season makes it to your screen).

While waiting for new episodes may seem as though it’s taking forever, it can’t compare with the long road through development Locke & Key had to go through to make it to the screen in the first place. With Locke & Key renewed for a second season, it’s only a matter of time before we can all return to Matheson, and that can’t come soon enough.
