For many who have not been paying consideration, Hollywood’s been attempting to make a Locke & Key TV collection occurs for years. At one level, it was going to be a FOX collection. Then it was a Hulu collection…until it wasn’t. In each instances, a pilot was filmed however neither community moved ahead with the present, and after Hulu bailed it actually appeared like a Locke & Key collection would possibly by no means occur.
Then, final Might, we realized that Netflix had scooped up the project, and shortly thereafter we realized they’d additionally gone forward and ordered ten full episodes of the collection. Now, over a yr later, we have lastly acquired a launch date. In fact it is nonetheless attainable that another unexpected catastrophe would possibly forestall Locke & Key from premiering on that date (an asteroid hitting the Earth, somebody unplugs Netflix, who is aware of what), however for now it seems like this wonderful horror comedian will lastly make its option to screens, and in only a matter of weeks. Fingers crossed!
Here is a synopsis, for anybody unfamiliar with the comedian:
“After their father is murdered beneath mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mom transfer into their ancestral residence, Keyhouse, which they uncover is filled with magical keys which may be related to their father’s dying. Because the Locke youngsters discover the totally different keys and their distinctive powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and can cease at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse (Misplaced, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill Home), the collection is a coming-of-age thriller about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that outline household.”
I think about we’ll be doing loads of Locke & Key protection within the lead-up to its arrival and upon its launch (we’re all followers right here), so keep tuned for extra on that within the very close to future.
