'Locke and Key' is being made by the same people behind the hit shows like 'The Haunting of Hill House,' 'Bates Motel' and 'Lost'.
We got an early New Year gift from Netflix in December 2019 when it announced the adaptation of the best-selling graphic novel Locke and Key into a series of the same name. The first look of the show was revealed to us where we met the Locke family, the house and saw some seriously creepy and ambiguous scenes from the series. The series is set to release on February 7 and as we waited impatiently to see more, Netflix has finally dropped the official trailer.
The two-minute trailer is spooky as much as it is exciting and intriguing. It shows the Locke family moving into the Keyhouse and takes us through the misadventures the family will go through in the first ten episodes of the show that will be dropping on Netflix. We meet mysterious characters and hear the spine-chilling whispers of a female voice at the end of the trailer. The show will be starring Darby Stanchfield of Scandal fame as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott from It and It 2 as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones as Kinsey Locke, and Bill Heck as Rendell Locke, as reported by Deadline. Griffin Gluck of American Vandal fame, Laysla De Oliveira, Thomas Mitchell Barnet, and Coby Bird will also be a part of the show.
The graphic novel was written by Stephen King's son Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. The story follows the lives of three siblings who move into a new house after the unexpected and gruesome murder of their father under suspicious circumstances. In the new house, they discover keys that hold magical powers. These keys allow them to travel through dimensions, in a reality-bending adventure. The plot is not in chronological order and traverses across different times and spaces. This will surely make for an interesting watch.
Some doors, once closed, can never be opened again. While others shouldn’t be reopened ever again…Please join us for a return to the Locke & Key mythos with a new story by series creators @joe_hill & @GR_comics in Locke and Key: Dog Days!

Hill will also be an executive producer for the series along with Carlton Cuse who worked on hit series like "Lost" and "Bates Motel" and Meredith Averill who worked on "The Haunting of Hill House". Fans of the comics have been eagerly waiting for the show to hit Netflix after the pilot of the show was scrapped by both Hulu and Fox, stalling the project for years. We now have to wait and see if the series does justice to the comics as a lot of expectations are riding on it. You can watch the trailer here:
