Locke & Key officially has a premiere date at Netflix. Based on the IDW comic book series by writer Joe Hill, artist Gabriel Rodríguez, colorist Jay Fotos, and letterer Robbie Robbins, the mystery series will follow the three Locke siblings and their mother as they move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, following the murder of their father.
When the family arrives, they discover that Keyhouse is full of magical keys that may have a connection to their father’s mysterious death. Each key has a unique set of powers; as the Locke children explore, they awaken a demon who will stop at nothing to steal them. And the story only becomes more complex and twisted from there.
Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and IT 2) as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones (Horrible Histories) as Kinsey Locke, Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) as Rendell Locke, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, and Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe.
Netflix’s adaptation comes from co-executive producers Carlton Cruse (Lost, Bates Motel); Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House); Aron Eli Coleite; Joe Hill; Chris Ryall; IDW’s Lydia Antonini and Ted Adams; Lindsey Springer for Genre Arts; Andy and Barbara Muschietti, David Alpert, and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion; and Tim Southam, John Weber, and Frank Siracusa for Take 5. The streaming giant released promotional art Wednesday, along with the series premiere date: February 7, 2020. There’s no word on a trailer yet, but hopefully, the series will capture the magic of the comic series.
