Netflix has announced that the highly anticipated adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s comic book series Locke and Key will premiere on the streaming network Feb. 7.
“It’s had a long eventful journey to screen,” Hill told Entertainment Weekly. “There was a previous attempt to bring it to TV at Hulu and before that, the guys at Fox made an effort. But I think the third time’s the charm. I’ve seen the whole series — still rough cuts, unfinished special effects, and all the rest of it — and it’s very Netflixy in the best possible way.”
According to Netflix’s Synopsis: 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 stars Darby Stanchfield, Jackson Robert Scott, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Bill Heck, Laysla De Oliveira, Thomas Mitchell Barnet, Griffin Gluck, and Coby Bird. The show’s executive producers include Hill, Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and Andy and Barbara Muschiet
