In 2008, author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodríguez unleased Locke & Key, a comic-series which soon caught the attention of Hollywood and went through several attempts at bringing the story to the screen, but at long last, Locke & Key will finally be brought to life on Netflix. The series centers around Tyler (Conner Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and Bode Locke (Jackson Robert Scott), three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house contains magical keys that grant them a vast array of potentially dangerous powers and abilities. What the Locke family doesn’t know, is that there’s a malevolent demon who dwells in the shadow’s of their home who desires the keys, and will stop at nothing to posses them. Netflix has released a new featurette for Locke & Key which dives into just how the series made the leap from page to screen.

The official synopsis for Locke & Key:

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 & Key will debut on Netflix on February 7, 2020.
