Netflix has released the first trailer for Locke & Key, the TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez IDW Comic of the same name. It has been a little over a decade since the title was being worked for the small screen, with networks like Fox trying to get it off the ground. Hulu then gave it a try, but that never panned out. However, it seems that it has found a home with Netflix. Now it is ready to unlock the doors to a strange new world full of fantasy and wonder, and maybe a little danger, this coming February.
The series centers on a group of three kids who move to the ancestral home, which is filled with hidden keys that unlock powers and abilities hidden within them.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Netflix’s Locke & Key:
Official Trailer for Locke & Key Season 1, coming to Netflix on February 7, 2020. Based on the best-selling graphic novels, Locke & Key follows 3 siblings who, after the murder of their father, move to their ancestral home only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities.
There’s plenty of mystery and magic that is filled in this strange house, and of course, there would be an evil force who will do anything to get their hands on those keys. So it will be interesting to see how the show can sustain that mystery and intrigue without feeling contrived or just repetitive. Guess we will have to wait and see. But so far, the trailer sets the tone of fun, intrigue, mystery, and wonder.
Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT) 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, Sherri Saum as Ellie Whedon, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe, Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon.
Netflix will release all 10 episodes of Locke & Key on February 10, 2020.
Also, minor spoilers below. But Netflix has also released the first official clip. But if you want to go in with a fresh pair of eyes, then I suggest avoiding this trailer.
