Locke & Key, much like The New Mutants which trailer has just been released, experienced a difficult evolution. The project to adapt the comics of Joe Hill (Stephen King’s son) and Gabriel Rodriguez had been considered by FOX for a while, but was taken over by Hulu before coming to an early end. Netflix then jumped at the opportunity to acquire the rights and began working on its own version. A version that can be enjoyed from February 7, 2020 on the streaming platform.
Netflix’s team for this adaptation of Locke & Key included Carlton Cuse (The Strain, Lost), Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House, The Good Wife) and Joe Hill himself. Something that will ensure that the series will properly respect the original work.
Magic keys, powers and evil creatures on the agenda
The show will start with the suspicious death of the patriarch of the Locke family. Following this death, Nina Locke (Darby Stanchfield) will move with her children Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones) and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) to Keyhouse, which is the Locke family home. An ancestral home that holds many secrets and within which are magic keys that confer countless powers. Unfortunately for the Locke family, an evil creature wants to get hold of those keys and won’t stop at nothing to obtain them, as the trailer suggests.
