After Netflix officially renewed ‘Locke & Key’ for season 2, fans are wondering what the expectations for the next season should be. Here is everything we know about the upcoming season.
Fans of all things horror, after some serious speculation Netflix has officially renewed its teen horror show ‘Locke & Key’ for season 2. Fans were left hanging on a cliff-hanger when the season 1 ended and no signs of the second season getting a go-ahead were showing.

- Season 2 plot predictions
- ‘Locke & Key’: Release date and who returns?
The show took 12 years to come to fruition on Netflix, so it’s safe to say that waiting a few more months should be no big deal for its fans.
And what is the second season looking like?
Here is everything we know about the plot, release date, and who will return.
‘Locke & Key’: What is it about?
The series follows Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke who are attempting to clear out the mess of their father’s murder. After their mother moves them back into the father’s ancestral home, Keyhouse, the Locke kids discover a pattern of mysterious keys hidden all over the house.
These keys are not ordinary keys. The keys have magical powers and are connected to a demon named Dodge, and the demon won’t stop until she possesses all members of the family. While the Lockes have travelled far to escape their past, they soon come to learn that their past is slowly but surely creeping up to them.
Their situation refers to Keyhouse and its deep mythology rooted in the late Rendell Locke (their father), and also in the form of the young man who killed Rendell: Sam Lesser, played by Thomas Mitchell Barnet.
So, what has happened so far and what should we expect from the plot of season 2?
Season 2 plot predictions
Show-runners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill made sure that season 1 ended with plenty of cliff-hangers and unresolved stories waiting to be explored in season 2. The horror-thriller show is also a teen drama at its heart (a genre Netflix excels at) and the second season can expect teen-angst to keep its younger audience hooked.
The golden question though is: Will there be more keys and demons in season 2? The first season had about 12 keys, the comic books the show is based on has a lot more. There is so doubt that ‘Locke & Key’ will borrow from its source material, which means a lot more keys and demons are to follow.
There is also the question of Ellie’s (Friend of Lockes’ late father) deaths. One of the original keepers of the keys, she helps the Locke kids make sense of what is happening to them. But, in an accident in the last episode, meets her end. An end which we never saw, so Ellie’s fate is left up in the air.
When will we get to see what the future holds for her and the others? And who else will return for season 2?
‘Locke & Key’: Release date and who returns?
Assuming season 2 continues roughly from where the previous season left off, the majority of cast members from season 1 are likely to return, including Jackson Robert Scott as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup as Tyler Locke, and Emilia Jones as Kinsey Locke.
‘Locke & Key’ Season 2 is in the early stages of development, so don’t expect to see any footage until 2021 at the very earliest. And, to delay it even further, the coronavirus pandemic has made things worse for the TV industry.
Although, even before the show renewed for a new season, the scripts were already in works, so at least that is underway.
