The first season of the series Locke and Key was such a success that shortly after its release on Netflix they began filming the second season. What few surely know is that the third season was recorded practically at the same time, and filming had already finished before the release of the second season. Now, after several months of waiting, we have the new details about this last season.
As we well know, the series is based on a saga of horror comics by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) and although at first the series was planned for FOX TV, for which even a pilot episode was recorded, finally it was not chosen and went on to become a trilogy of films. This project, by the way, did not go ahead either. Years later, plans to create a series with Hulu under the direction of Andy Muschietti, director of It, returned.
The third season was confirmed in December 2020. Producer Carlton Cruise and showrunner Meredith Averillhan managed to create a good world within this series, and the great reception from the audience was the missing ingredient to continue creating stories in the Locke and Key universe.
Darby Stanchfield (Nina Locke) announced last September on Instagram that she had finished filming the third season. Emilia Jones (Kinsey Locke) did the same as her fictional mother on her social networks, thanking the team they have worked with and highlighting all the work they did with the weight of the restrictions due to the pandemic.
We also have official date for this last installment, which will arrive on Netflix next August 10, 2022. And as for narrative details, Dodge, the main villain, was defeated in the second season, but let’s remember that Eden used the Echo key to bring back Captain Frederick Gideon, a British soldier possessed by the first demon to go through the portal and known to be one of the most bloodthirsty figures of the American Revolutionary War.
Soon we will be able to see how this new villain complicates life for our protagonists, especially now that his older brother has decided to forget the whole magical world. Kinsey and Bodie will have to face a new challenge and continue to discover the secrets hidden in the keys.
