Locke And Key Season 3 Release Date: Locke & Key, the Netflix series based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s iconic comic books, may have taken a time to find a home—it went from a film adaptation to being sold as a series at Fox and Hulu before settling at Netflix—but it’s now a definite hit.
Following the Locke family as they relocate to their ancestral home, Keyhouse, after their father is mysteriously murdered, and discover a set of supernatural keys, the series from showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill unlocks everything that binge-worthy coming-of-age paranormal dramas is made of.
Season 2, which premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2021, concluded with the episode “Cliffhanger,” which left the Locke kids with even more evil hanging in their spooky town of Matheson, Massachusetts.
Thankfully, Locke & Key Season 3 has already been ordered, and it was ordered before Season 2 had even begun filming in late 2020. Below, we use our mystery-solving and otherworldly Locke-family-like abilities to decipher what to expect from the forthcoming season.
Who Will Be Cast in Locke And Key Season 3?
The entire main cast has confirmed that they will return to Matheson to solve the mystery of Keyhouse Manor.
That means expect to see more of Tyler Locke (Connor Jessup), Kinsey Locke (Emilia Jones), Bode Locke (Jackson Robert Scott), Nina Locke (Darby Stanchfield), Duncan Locke (Aaron Ashmore), Scot Cavendish (Petrice Jones), Josh Bennett (Brendan Hines), and Frederick Gideon (Kevin Durand).
If you want to get sad about the series’ conclusion, a few cast members posted goodbye messages on social media after filming concluded.
Ellie Whedon, played by Sherri Saum, is another character we’ll be seeing more of. Before Season 3 began filming in the fall of 2021, Deadline claimed that Saum had been promoted to series regular and that Ellie and her son Rufus (Coby Bird) would return to Matheson, but “haunted by her time spent behind the Black Door.”
She also faces “a new and progressively more frightening threat that hovers over the community,” according to the story.
What Will Be the Plotline of Locke And Key Season 3?
Eden used the echo key to bring Captain Fredrick Gideon back in the previous season, and now he seeks to exact revenge on the Locke kids. Nina can now recall everything with the help of a memory key, which will undoubtedly cause problems in her family dynamic.
Tyler’s 18th birthday is approaching, and he has a limited amount of time to recall the magic and aid his family in the struggle that will take place in the third season.
Locke & Key is a fantasy horror drama series based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodrguez‘s comic book series of the same name. After her husband, Rendell Locke, was murdered by a former pupil, Sam Lesser, Nina, and her three children decide to relocate from Seattle to Matheson.
When the family arrives at Rendell’s family home, Keyhouse, the kids quickly discover a lot of weird keys that can be used to open various doors in mysterious ways. As they learned that a demon is also looking for those keys for its own demonic goals, the enjoyment quickly turned into horror.
How Many Episodes will be there of Season 3?
Season 3 will consist of eight episodes, as opposed to the ten episodes of seasons 1 and 2. Since Deadline said that the creative team had always intended for eight episodes for the final season, they should be just as full of twists and scares as the previous seasons.
Will Locke And Key Season 3 Be the Final Season?
Season 3 of Locke & Key is confirmed to be the final chapter, according to Deadline in April 2022. Although it’s unfortunate that this will be our final spooky adventure with the Locke kids, it’s worth remembering that the show wasn’t necessarily canceled, so fans shouldn’t expect any stories to be cut short.
Since Season 1’s resounding success, Netflix and showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill have been planning a three-season arc for the show, according to Deadline.
In a statement, the showrunners said, “When we first started working on the program, we decided that three seasons would be the perfect length to bring the Locke family’s Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying end.
As storytellers, we are grateful for the opportunity to convey Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s extraordinary story in the way that we desired. The mystical keys, on the other hand, will be kept for our own exclusive use.”
Locke And Key Season 3 Release Date
With the new season currently in post-production, it appears that the last season will be released this year. Season 3 was actually shot in early 2021, soon after Season 2, so there shouldn’t be too much work remaining to finish.
Given that first-look shots of the upcoming season are already available on Netflix, we’re guessing Locke And Key Season 3 will premiere soon—possibly in the July of 2022. However, given that it is one of Netflix’s supernatural hits, we wouldn’t be surprised if it debuted just in time for Halloween this fall, as Season 2 did.
