‘Locke & Key’ to Take Us on a Ride in Season 2
Netflix’s ‘Locke & Key’ will lock you in its fantasy adventures before you can even say key. The story follows the adventures of the Locke family siblings, Tyler, Bode and Kinsey, as they arrive at their ancestral home in Matheson after their father’s murder. Interestingly enough, the house is called “Keyhouse”, which immediately adds to our excitement because, well, ‘Locke & Key’! Get it? What follows are magic keys, fantasy realms, distorted realities and of course, an evil witch!
The last episode of season 1 ended on a huge cliffhanger as the final twist left us speechless. We find out that Dodge is in fact alive and still hunting for the keys. The omega key is in safe hands for now, but let’s not kid ourselves, Dodge is not going to make it that easy. Season 2 of ‘Locke & Key’ might reveal more magical keys and portals. According to the comic books, there are many more keys left to explore. There is the “angel key” that helps to fly, the “giant key”, the “Hercules necklace” that provides enormous strength, the “timeshift key”, and wait for it, a “key to the moon” that literally allows one to enter the moon!
The release of season 2 of ‘Locke & Key’ might answer our questions about the origins of the keys and as to why the adults cannot feel the magic. There are probably harder challenges lurking around for the Locke siblings and company in season 2 of the show. According to “Digital Spy”, Emilia Jones, who plays Kinsey Locke, has some interesting theories about the second season. She said, “Kinsey is gonna have to figure out that they’ve thrown Ellie through the Omega door, and that she’s facing a demon. And maybe she’ll put her fear back in her head, at some point. And Tyler is gonna be 18, so he’ll start forgetting the magic, which will be a good storyline because Tyler and Kinsey are so close.” She added, “Carlton Cuse said that season 1 is basically about the kids discovering that they’re the keepers of the keys, and season 2 is about figuring out what that responsibility means.”
Cast Members Locke(d) for Season 2
It can be taken for granted that season 2 of the show will pick it up right from where it was left. This means, we can expect most of the original cast to come back. Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones and Jackson Robert Scott will respectively return to play the Locke siblings –Tyler, Kinsey and Bode. Laysla de Oliveira will come back as Dodge. Griffin Gluck will return to play Gabe while Darby Stanchfield returns as Nina Locke.
We don’t know if Ellie comes back as a character, but we are hoping that the release of ‘Locke & Key’ season 2 would hurry up for us to find out.
Release Date for ‘Locke & Key’ Season 2
Soon after its premier Netflix announced picking up ‘Locke & Key’ for a season 2 release. Their official “Twitter” account said, “more keys, more demons, more aloha Locke & Key is officially returning for season two!!”
Given the global pandemic crisis season 2 of the show might not be airing before 2021, but the creators promise to make the wait worth it. Cuse said, “There are so many things that we want them to do that we just kicked out into the second season…We want to be able to kind of continually invigorate and refresh the show as an ongoing series and, you know, I think that will work out well.”
We can’t wait to find out what new adventures are in store for the Locke family. Until then, keep your keys safe! What new keys do you think season 2 might reveal? Tell us in the comments below!
