Locke & Key on Netflix is the long-awaited television adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics. How long-awaited, you ask? The award-winning title was first published back in 2008, followed shortly by a pilot project to adapt it for Fox. That didn’t pan out, so Hulu took a crack at it nearly a decade later. Rinse and repeat. But now, Netflix has the story on lockdown (so to speak) and the first trailer for the live-action series suggests they’ve got a bona fide hit on their hands. Fair warning: It’s pretty spoilery in that it reveals quite a bit from the show itself, so if you’d rather go in cold, you might want to skip the trailer for now.
Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT, 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, Sherri Saum as Ellie Whedon, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe, Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon. All 10 episodes arrive (FINALLY!) on Netflix February 7th.
Check out the first trailer for Locke & Key below:
After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father’s death. As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and will stop at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family.
