Earlier today, Netflix released the first official image from its upcoming television adaptation of Joe Hill's Locke & Key. The photo shows off the central connecting point of the story, the mysterious Keyhouse Manor with its many secrets waiting to be unlocked.

Hopefully this means a trailer is coming sooner rather than later, but for now you can check out the new image just below and read on for more details on the series.

This show is based on a graphic novel from horror writer Joe Hill and illustrator Gabriel Rodriguez, which ran from 2008 through 2013 and features six major arcs in total along with a handful of one-shot spinoffs and another in the works.

The story follows the Locke siblings, Tyler, Kinsey, and little Bode, who, along with their mother, return to their ancestral home of Keyhouse following their father’s gruesome murder. Keyhouse is a place of both wonder and fear, filled with dark doors and the magic keys that open them, and also home to a malicious presence that will stop at nothing in its quest for the Omega Key and the unspeakable prize it unlocks.

Locke & Key comes our way from Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill with It and It: Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti also attached. Starring is Jackson Robert Scott, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Darby Stanchfield, Bill Heck, Laysla De Oliveira, Thomas Mitchell Barnet, Griffin Gluck, and Coby Bird.

The series is set to premiere on Netflix with a 10-episode debut season on February 7th, 2020. As always, keep an eye on Dead Entertainment for news and updates pertaining to this show and more.
