It seems author Joe Hill is finally having luck with his projects getting adapted. AMC not only created a TV series based on his novel NOS4A2, but it looks like his comic book series Locke & Key is next – and this time it’ll air as an original series on streaming platform Netflix. Even better, they’ve now unveiled the official release date, and it looks like fans will be able to check out the series early next year on February 7, 2020. And scroll down below to get a look at the new poster artwork!
The series has gone through a couple of different iterations across its developmental history, including attempts to get the project produced over at both 20th Century Fox TV as well as Hulu. Luckily Netflix appears to have been the proper choice for the new series, as it’s finally happening and fans will only have to wait a few more months before its premiere.
In Locke & Key…
“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.”
The new series stars stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and 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, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, and Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe.
The original IDW comics come from both Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
