Locke & Key
Based on the graphic novel by Gabriel Rodriguez and Joe Hill, Locke & Key follows three siblings who move into a new home following the death of their father. What they don’t expect, however, is the reality-bending keys which give them a range of exceptional powers.
If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, the tale gets even meatier as the siblings are forced to take on a cunning demon who will stop at nothing to get hold of the ever-powerful keys.
Having been piloted for Fox way back in 2011 and Hulu in 2017, fans of the graphic novel has waited a long time for Locke & Key to hit the small screen. However, you won’t have to wait too much longer as it launches on Netflix on 7 February 2020.
