Locke & Key seemed like one of those adaptations that we may never actually see. After several false starts, and a change of venue, the Joe Hill/Gabriel Rodriguez story finally has a premiere date. Netflix announced that it's adaptation of the IDW best seller will hit the streamer on February 7, 2020. They even released this creepy motion poster:
Just in case you're not familiar with the story, here is the synopsis from Netflix: 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.
Not only did this show move from Hulu to Netflix, there was also a re-casting of the leads as well. This cast will include 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, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe, Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon. Co-creator Joe Hill is listed as one of the executive producers of the series, along with familiar names from those who are familiar with IDW, Chris Ryall and Ted Adams.
