Netflix has released the full official trailer of its upcoming Locke & Key television series, based on the acclaimed Joe Hill graphic novels of the same name. This adaptation has been nearly a decade in the making after failing to take off past the pilot stage at numerous networks, but finally the streaming platform is delivering the goods and preparing to unlock this horror-fantasy world for viewers everywhere. Give the trailer a watch above and read on for more details regarding 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.
