Original Story: It’s been over a year and a half since Locke & Key premiered on Netflix in February 2020. And even though the streamer revealed during last June’s Geeked Week that season 2 of the supernatural horror drama is set to drop this coming October, an exact release date for the show’s sophomore run has yet to be announced.
Fans, however, may finally be getting a specific release date announcement very soon. On Monday, series producer IDW Entertainment revealed via IDW Publishing’s Twitter account that the first teaser trailer for the show’s second season will drop today, September 14th. And as is the case for most returning TV shows, a teaser trailer release is usually accompanied by a release date announcement.

Based on the comic-book series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, Locke & Key follows the Locke siblings ― Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) ― who move into their ancestral family home with their mom Nina (Darby Stanchfield) following the murder of their father Rendell (Bill Heck). The children soon discover a number of mysterious keys throughout the house that can be used to unlock various doors in magical ways. Almost at the same time, they become aware of a demonic entity that is also searching for the keys for its own malevolent purposes.
Plot details about season 2 are being kept under wraps, but Jessup, Jones, Scott, and Stanchfield are all expected to return for the next season, along with other cast members, including Laysla De Oliveira, Petrice Jones, Griffin Gluck, Aaron Ashmore, Coby Bird, Bill Heck, Asha Bromfield, Genevieve Kang, Hallea Jones, Felix Mallard, and Jesse Camacho.
Developed by Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and Aron Eli Coleite for Netflix, Locke & Key has already been renewed for a third season.
“Carlton and [co-showrunner Averill] have built an incredible world in Locke & Key, and we’re excited to have the Lockes return for more in the third season,” Netflix Vice President of Overall Deals Brian Wright said when season 3 was announced in December 2020. “I’m delighted to expand our creative partnership with Meredith Averill, a talented creator with a keen eye for best-in-class horror and supernatural storytelling.”
