Locke and Key season 2 isn’t just on the way, but apparently coming this year. Although we don’t have a specific date yet, it’s really nice to have a little bit of information on the season, like a treat. The show is inspired by the comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, and it did a great job of being one of the most intriguing horror series on Netflix.
With Season 1 behind us and Season 2 halfway through filming in December of last year, we’re hoping to get a more concrete release date in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we already know that Season 3 has been confirmed. We’re hoping that the progress of Season 2 will mean Covid won’t be able to interrupt it anymore, because we really want to know what’s going to happen next.
We’ve listed everything we know about Locke & Key season 2 below, so read it for more on the cast, release date, and more.
Locke and Key season 2 release date: what do we know?

Locke and Key season 2 was confirmed to be in production in September of last year, thanks to a tweet from Locke and Key Twitter Account. As you can see from the tweet above, we have a very vague 2021 release date for Locke and Key season 2 now.
While 2021 as a release date is extremely vague, we don’t expect to see it until July at the earliest, although we would be happy to be wrong about that. Of course, that’s not the only key information in the tweet, as it also announced that the show has already been picked up for season 3.
We’re not here to make predictions on when Season 3 is likely to pick up, but we do think that means the 2021 release date is likely to hold up. It’s natural to assume that the announced release dates will be a bit shaky given the year we’ve had, but confirming the third season before the second is tied must be a good sign.
There’s also the fact that Darby Stanchfield posed a photo on Instagram with co-stars Connor Jessup and Jackson Robert Scott with the caption “Half of Season 3 Locke’d in…” Filming began in September , so logically the shooting should be more or less done now.
Locke and Key season 2 and story: what will happen next?
First of all, we can expect the main cast to return. This includes Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones and Jackson Robert Scott in the Locke family, as well as Dodge, Lucas and Gabe, played by Laysla De Oliveira, Felix Mallard and Griffin Gluck respectively.
But in terms of new faces, Brendan Hines (The Tick, Scorpion) joins the cast of Locke and Key season 2 as Josh Bennett, a charming history teacher at Matheson Academy, one with a secret alternate agenda, reports. Deadline. It is also reported that Aaron Ashmore and Hallea Jones have been promoted to Season 2 Regulars, with Liyou Abere (Ms. America) reportedly being a guest. Ashmore is said to be Duncan Locke, a family member with a key-related past helping the Lockes against Dodge, with Jones as a demon and a nasty former high school student.
The story should pick up exactly where the ending of the first season left off. The Lockes were foiled by the demon like Dodge, Lucas, and Gabe. Not only do the Locke family have to deal with the fact that they’ve been tricked by the demon into throwing Ellie (Sherrie Saum) into the void beyond the Omega Gate, but it looks like Eden (Hallea Jones) can be brought down and now controlled by the demon as well.

Elsewhere, expect a lot more doors, keys, and demons (as mentioned in the tweet above), but there’s still a lot of story information to emerge. We do know, however, that when it comes to adapting stories from the comics, Hill and Rodríguez are quick to make changes. “It has to work like a TV show,” Hill told Entertainment Weekly in response to questions about Sam Lesser’s reduced involvement and the mixing of two Major Keys in Season 1.
“He has to be successful within the possibilities and limitations of his own particular form,” Hill continued. While we [Hill and Rodríguez] worked on the comic, we were always eager to make it a success as a comic, “Hill said it was the job of the show’s cast and crew” to do something that would be successful on its own. conditions as a TV show. “
Locke and Key season 2 could mix up the comics and original stories
Locke and Key Season 2 will apparently feature original stories, but there is still a lot of material to adapt from the comics in the years to come. “There are definitely some stories left in the comics that we want to keep, to use in future seasons,” Cuse said in that same Collider interview. “So it’s still a bit of a remix, to pull stories from the comics and our own original stories.”
