Is the Locke & Key season 2 release date confirmed? The Netflix series delighted genre fans in 2020, but when can audiences expect new episodes?
Netflix has already delivered a number of hits in 2021, including the likes of the documentary series Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel and the mystery thriller series Behind Her Eyes.
Nevertheless, many haven’t forgotten their cherished viewing experiences of the previous year in a hurry. Lately, fans have grown particularly curious about the continuation of Locke & Key.
Developed by Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and Aron Eli Coleite, this supernatural horror-drama series is based on the comic book of the same name and hit Netflix in February.
Now that it’s been over a year since audiences became lost in the adventures of the titular family, it’s time to look ahead once more.
Is the Locke & Key season 2 release date confirmed yet?
Locke & Key season 2 release date: Is it confirmed?
- As of yet, a release date for Locke & Key season 2 has not been confirmed. Nevertheless, updates suggest that new episodes will arrive in 2021.
Netflix greenlit the series for a second season back in March 2020 and the creative team already had their imaginations whirling with ideas beforehand.
The showrunner – Carlton Cuse – spoke with IGN and explained that the writers had already begun working on new episodes before being given the green light for season 2.
Fortunately, their efforts and determination were not in vain and the show was picked up again. Production reportedly began on new episodes at Cinespace Film Studios in Toronto, Canada on Monday, September 21st 2020. Since then, we’ve also had an encouraging update on the team’s progress.
In December 2020, Darby Stanchfield posted a photo on Instagram alongside co-stars Connor Jessup and Jackson Robert Scott. They were on the set of Locke & Keyset in Toronto and the image was captioned: “Half of season 2 Locke-d in…”
That same month, Darby posted a video of Locke & Key stars dancing with the following caption: “A high key happy dance for #lockeandkey season THREE! But first, look out for Season two in 2021!” So, not only have we been told to expect season 2 in 2021, but audiences can look forward to season 3 too.
Carlton said of the renewal: “We have some incredible adventures in store for the Locke family in season three, and could not be more excited to continue telling our story with our great partners at Netflix.”
It’s likely that Locke & Key season 2 will arrive in late 2021.
Emelia Jones talks Locke & Key renewal
Back in 2020, Emilia Jones (who plays Kinsey Locke) expressed her excitement following news that Netflix had greenlit more episodes:
“… yeah, I’m so excited that it’s been picked up. I think there are some awesome storylines for Season 2, and it ended on a cliffhanger, so it will be nice to pick that up. We ended in a nice place.”
She added: “Things calmed down and we’re happy where we are. We have friends and we’re figuring out what the responsibilities are, being the keepers of the keys.”
Locke & Key season 1 is available to stream now on Netflix.
