In spite of the fact that Locke & Key, the Netflix series based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s popular comic novels, took some time to find a home, the streaming service has managed to turn it into a definite hit.
The series, created by Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill, follows the Locke family after their father is murdered and they move back to their ancestral home, Keyhouse, where they uncover a pair of otherworldly keys. It’s everything a good coming-of-age paranormal drama should be.
‘Cliffhanger’, the final episode of Season 2, premiered on Netflix in the fall of 2021 and left the Locke children in the strange hamlet of Matheson, Massachusetts with even more evil coming.
Locke & Key’s third season has already been ordered, and it was even ordered before the second season finished production in late 2020. Using our Locke-like talents, we break down what to expect in the next season in the following paragraphs.
When Will Locke & Key Season 3 Will Be Released?
We’ve known since the beginning that season 3 will be available on Netflix in 2022.
According to Netflix’s “Get Geeked” campaign, which was launched in November 2021, Locke & Key season 3 will premiere in 2022 along with Alice in Borderland, The Witcher: Blood Origin, and other “genre” shows.
Joe Hill has promised that the wait for the third season will be “far shorter”.
For the second time in June 2022, we learned that the last season of Locke & Key will premiere on August 10, 2022, on Netflix.
Who Will Be the Cast in Locke & Key Season 3?
The entire main cast has been confirmed to return to Matheson to solve the Keyhouse Manor mystery. We can expect to see more Tyler Locke (Connor Jessup), Kinsey Lock (Emilia Jones), Bode Locke (Jackson Robert Scott), Nina Locke (Darby Stanchfield), Duncan Locke (Aaron Ashmore), Scot Cavendish (Petrice Jones), Josh Bennett (Brendan Hines), Frederick Gideon (Kevin Durand), who is now on a mission of revenge.
You might become upset about the show’s finale by looking at some of the goodbye posts the cast members made on social media as filming ended.
Sherri Saum’s Ellie Whedon is another character we can expect to see more of. Ellie and her son Rufus (Coby Bird) will return to Matheson in Season 3, but “haunted by her time spent beyond the Black Door,” according to Deadline before production began in October 2021.
A “new and progressively more frightening threat that looms over the town” is also believed to exist.
What Will Locke & Key’s Third Season Be About?
It’s unlikely that the show’s source material will provide you with any clues as to what will happen next. However, it does appear to be the most intense season yet. Collider said that Meredith Averill said the following to them: “During the third season, the focus shifts more toward the characters’ families.
There will be the greatest challenge of their lives ahead of them. When they do it, it creates a bond that we haven’t seen before.”
However, Captain Frederick Gideon appears to be the “danger” she’s alluding to in this statement. With Gideon’s return as an echo in the final episodes of Season 2, Eden is out for vengeance on our favorite demon-fighting family.
Individually, we should be seeing the effects of the decisions that some characters made at the conclusion of Season 2 as well. A major shift in the Locke household will be brought about by Nina’s decision to make use of the Memory Key’s memory-boosting abilities.
While Collider has been told that Tyler’s decision not to participate will impact his relationship with his family, the show’s producers have stated that it will have “consequences.” In light of the impending 18th birthday and the fact that he has the capacity to continue practicing magic, it is necessary to keep that in mind.
Will It Be the Last Season?
Season 3 of Netflix’s Locke & Key will be the series’ final season, according to the show’s creators, who also released new images of the cast.
“Once we began working on the series, we felt three seasons was the ideal length to bring the story of the Locke family and their Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying conclusion. As storytellers, we are grateful that we had the opportunity to tell our version of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s incredible story exactly the way we wanted. We’re keeping the magical keys, though, for our own personal use.” – Locke and Key showrunners and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill

You’ll want to tune in to watch how this charming New England village gets wreaked by some new villains and even a familiar figure.
