March 30, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Get ready for a trip back to Keyhouse, as Netflix has renewed their hit comic book adaptation Locke & Key for a second season. Deadline reports that the series, which is based on the horror-fantasy comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, will return for a second run. The show’s official Twitter account also confirmed the renewal.

The new season will, per Deadline, “see the stakes grow higher for the Locke siblings as they embrace their role as the new Keepers of the Keys.” The first season debut in February and has earned decent reviews from critics and fans.

“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke and Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” said executive producers and co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”

Brian Wright, Vice President, Original Series at Netflix, added: “Based on the incredible graphic novel from Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, Locke and Key captivated audiences around the world at every twist and turn. We are so proud to have been part of this show and can’t wait to see all that Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and the entire creative team have in store for season two.”

The first season starred Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Jackson Robert Scott, Laysla De Oliveira, Aaron Ashmore, Petrice Jones, and Griffin Gluck. Like the comic, it centered on the Locke family, who return to their ancestral home of Keyhouse in Matheson, Massachusetts after the family patriarch is murdered. The three children (Jessup, Jones, Scott) discover that the house is full of magical keys that can do amazing (and potentially terrible) things, and may be connected to their father’s death. As they explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon named Dodge awakens, intent on stealing the keys for their own plans.
