After a number of attempts, Carlton Cuse (Lost, The Strain) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House) have succeeded in adapting Joe Hill’s series of Locke & Key graphic novels for the streamer.
A tale in which keys unlock powers in the children of the Locke family – and sets a demon against – will premiere on Netflix on February 7th. Check out the announcement poster.
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.
Locke and 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.
