Locke and Key season 2 is heading to Netflix, continuing on the story which is based on the best-selling graphic novels co-created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. Season 1 introduced us to the Locke family,  who were in need of a fresh start and moved into a mysterious old ancestral manor named Keyhouse. Here, they hoped to come to terms with the death of family patriarch Rendall Lock and adjust to a new life in a different area.

However, they soon realised they had even bigger problems to deal with after discovering mysterious keys linked to Rendall's death. The series follows widow Nina Locke and her children as they figure out what to do in the aftermath of Rendall's death, facing dangerous situations along the way.

Season 2 will pick up after the dramatic events of the first, which saw the family hit by malevolent demons who were also in search of the keys linked to Rendall's death. With identities changed and lives in danger, is anyone safe?

Locke & Key season 2 release date

The wait is almost over, as Locke & Key season 2 is arriving on Netflix on Friday 22 Oct., just in time for the Halloween season! The previous season is still available to watch on-demand.
