On February 7th, 2020, Locke & Key will grace the streaming service with its first ten episodes.
The series focuses on the lives of three children named Tyler, Kinsey and Bode Locke. The children move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts, following the murder of their father. In their new home they find that the house keys give them vast magical powers and abilities, but there is a devious demon who will stop at nothing to attain the keys for himself.

Joe Hill
After several false starts, it’s great to finally see this project being developed and now released. The series is based on the IDW comics written by Joe Hill ( the son of legendary Horror author Stephen King, who has penned such books as Horns, Heart Shaped Box, Nos4R2 and 20th Century Ghosts) and was illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. So far the comics span 7 runs (totalling 42 issues, so far), and a new issue will arrive in 2020, titled World War Key.

Originally the development of the comics was to be a film project, but this was only rumoured. In 2010 the pilot was filmed and offered to FOX. Although well received at a screening at the San Diego Comic Con International in 2011, the pilot was not picked up and the offer shuffled hands to streaming service Hulu. The Mark Romanek directed pilot again failed to secure a deal and has since become the one that got away from fans.

Fast forward to 2019, and with a change of Director (well there are now five directing two episodes each now) and cast, and finally Locke & Key has been able to secure a deal with Netflix to release the first season for the long time waiting fans.

The Locke Children are played by a young, fresh faced cast. Tyler Locke is portrayed by Connor Jessup, known for his television roles in Falling Skies and American Crime. Emilia Jones steps in to play Kinsey Locke, she has had roles on television with shows like Doctor Who, and in films like Residue (2015) and Ghostland (2018). The youngest of the Locke children, Bode, is played by Jackson Robert Scott. Scott is easily recognisable from his roles as George “Georgie” Denbrough in the recent Andres Muschetti adaptation of Stephen Kings IT (2017/19).
Any fans of Hill’s work will eagerly be counting down the days until February 7th, to finally get a taste of his Locke & Key world.
If you’d like to begin reading the comics ahead of the series arrival, they are available in both comic runs and compilations. The runs are as follows:

Welcome to the Lovecraft (6 issue run)
Head Games (6 issue run)
Crown of Shadows (6 issue run)
Keys to the Kingdom (6 issue run)
Clockworks (6 issue run)
Alpha & Omega (7 issue run that consists of 5 for Omega and 2 for Alpha)
and The Golden Age (5 issue run)
