Locke and Key season 2 is not only on its way but, finally, we have confirmation on when it’ll land on Netflix – and it will be later this year. The show is inspired by the comic series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, and it did an excellent job of being one of the more intriguing horror series on the streamer. It didn’t take long for Locke and Key season 2 to be confirmed as a result, but it’s a big plus to know that it’ll be coming before the year is over. If you want to know everything about Locke and Key season 2 before it arrives, we’ve got you covered.
Locke and Key season 2 release date: October 2021
Locke and Key season 2 was confirmed to be in production back in September last year, thanks to a tweet from the Locke and Key Twitter account. Now, though, we have an official launch date: Locke and Key season 2 will arrive on Netflix in October 2021. Revealed on Day 2 of Netflix Geeked Week (Tuesday, June 8), the release date announcement was made public alongside some first-look images for season 2.
Locke and Key season 2 cast and story: what’s going to happen next?
First, we can expect the main cast to return. That includes Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, and Jackson Robert Scott as the Locke family, as well as Dodge, Lucas, and Gabe, played by Laysla De Oliveira, Felix Mallard, and Griffin Gluck, respectively.
But in terms of new faces, Brendan Hines (The Tick, Scorpion) joins the Locke and Key season 2 cast as Josh Bennett, a charming history teacher at Matheson Academy, one with a secret alternative agenda, Deadline reports. It’s also reported that Aaron Ashmore and Halle Jones have been promoted to season 2 regulars, with Liyou Abere (Mrs. America) rumored to guest star. Ashmore is allegedly Duncan Locke, a family member with a past relating to the keys who helps the Lockes against Dodge, with Jones as a demon, and former mean high school girl.
The story is set to pick up exactly where the end of the first season left off. The Locke’s have been outsmarted by the demon as Dodge, Lucas, and Gabe. Not only must the Locke family deal with the fact that they’ve been tricked by the demon into throwing Ellie (Sherrie Saum) into the void beyond the Omega Door, it seems like Eden (Halle Jones) may be struck down and now controlled by the demon, too.
