Locke & Key Season 2 is formally streaming on Netflix, which suggests A) you’ve in all probability already binged it, and B) are dying to look at the following season, on condition that cliffhanger ending. However is there going to be a Locke & Key Season 3? And in that case, when will Locke & Key Season 3 premiere?
Nice questions, and good on you for clicking on a publish titled “when will Locke & Key Season 3 premiere?” to seek out out the solutions. That’s the form of good considering that’s going to pay dividends down the highway.
Anyway, on with the precise data.
Will there be a Locke & Key Season 3?
As positive as Gabe (Griffin Gluck) and Eden (Hallea Jones) are evil demons, there’s gonna be a Locke & Key Season 3 on Netflix. The streamer introduced the sequence had been picked up for Season 3 earlier than Season 2 even debuted, and the 2 seasons have been primarily filmed again to again with a brief break. Nice information, notably given how Season 2 ends…
When will Locke & Key Season 3 premiere on Netflix?
This, we’re much less positive about. No official premiere date has been introduced but, although wanting on the previous patterns of manufacturing to launch date, we will definitely speculate. Locke & Key Season 1 completed filming in Toronto on July 5, 2019, and the primary season was launched on February 7, 2020, about seven months later. Season 2 completed filming on April 16, 2021 and was launched at present, October 22. That’s a six month hole, fyi. With Season 3 ending principal pictures round September 17, a six or seven month hole would put Locke & Key Season 3 premiering in March, or April 2022 on the newest.
Will Netflix wish to put an extended hole between Season 2 and Season 3? Possibly, possibly not. This isn’t precisely the identical factor because the streamer’s “Half 1” and “Half 2” format of cut up seasons that always sees two elements of the identical season debut in the identical 12 months (see Cash Heist for example); it’s two totally different seasons. So it’s potential Season 3 may debut even later, both within the Summer time, and even as late as October, 2022.
However fingers crossed it’s sooner, as a result of we have to head again to Matheson ASAP.
What is going to occur in Locke & Key Season 3, primarily based on the books?
Uhhh… No thought. The completely wild factor about Seasons 1 and a couple of is that they primarily flew by way of almost all the plot of all six graphic novel collections by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. There may be lots of different materials that can be collected subsequent 12 months in a group referred to as The Golden Age, however these happen earlier within the historical past of Keyhouse, and don’t embody (largely) the identical characters. There are additionally a couple of points and occasions right here and there within the first six volumes that haven’t been touched on.
There’s additionally a storyline Hill and Rodriguez have been teasing for a very long time (and are tentatively planning on beginning work on subsequent 12 months) referred to as World Warfare Key, that ought to convey again a number of the trendy Lockes. So may Season 3 be primarily based on unpublished Locke & Key materials, a la the ultimate seasons of Recreation of Thrones? When Decider requested co-showrunner Meredith Averill particularly about this, she defined that Locke & Key season 3 is pulling on none of what was simply talked about.
“It’s solely unique,” Averill defined, with out elaborating additional.
We’re primarily in uncharted waters in relation to Locke & Key Season 3. That’s thrilling and nerve-wracking!
Who’s within the solid of Locke & Key Season 3?
With out getting too closely into spoilers, the entire major solid must be again for Season 3, together with Darby Stanchfield as Nina Locke, Emilia Jones as Kinsey Locke, Jackson Robert Scott as Bode Locke, and — spoilers previous this level — Connor Jessup as Tyler Locke, regardless of him leaving city on the finish of Season 2. As Jessup defined to Decider, “I don’t suppose when he leaves on the finish of Season 2 that his story is over. To me, it felt like a brand new chapter, but it surely didn’t really feel like a decision. So, there’s nonetheless extra for Tyler.”
There’s additionally an excellent likelihood we’ll see supporting solid members like Petrice Jones as Scot Cavendish (who additionally left city), Aaron Ashmore as Duncan Locke, Asha Bromfield as Zadie and Jesse Camacho as Doug. And (once more, severe spoilers) Lucas Caravaggio (Felix Mallard) is “alive” once more on the finish of the season, albeit as an echo. Additionally you may anticipate Kevin Durand to be the principle villain, as Captain Frederick Gideon; and it’s potential regardless of dying in a effectively, Hallea Jones and Griffin Gluck may be again in some type as Eden and Gabe. When requested, Averill as soon as once more merely stated, “keep tuned.”
Gluck, in the meantime, was cagey, however extra effusive. “I’ll provide you with one in every of these,” Gluck stated, waggling his eyebrows. “So look, that is going to be exhausting to transcribe, however possibly… There’s at all times an opportunity. We’ve bought magic, and film magic.”
Jones was of the identical thoughts, including that, “We’ll see. Dot, dot, dot. Yeah.”
So not a affirmation, however not a denial. Hey, Gideon goes to wish henchmen, proper?
Will there be a Locke & Key Season 4?
Whoa, nelly! Given Season 2 simply debuted, and Season 3 is many months away, we don’t have any particular thought a few Season 4, or if Season 3 would be the last season a la different Netflix sci-fi/fantasy exhibits like Misplaced in House.
