You can find out all about Locke and Key Season 2, including its renewal status, release date, and plot.
Locke and Key Season 2 Release Date
After about twelve years of the Locke and Key comic series coming out, the books were finally given a TV show adaptation. This was released in February 2021. Just like the comics, the series turned out to be an absolute hit, with people from all around the world loving the first season. Since the viewership was great and the source material was abundant. There was no reason for the producers not to renew the series for a second season. Thus, they officially renewed Locke and Key for season 2. This was only one month after the first season made its debut. It began production in September 2020, and filming is complete now. Only some post-production work is left, which will be completed in a month or two.
Netflix has announced the official release date for Locke and Key Season 2. The streaming platform didn’t give us an exact day, but it has confirmed that the second season will premiere in October 2021. It posted a tweet on its official Twitter account that said: “ What secrets will the keys unlock next? Here’s your first look at Lock & Key Season 2, coming in October! #GeekedWeek.” The caption was paired with a few pictures that gave us our very first look at Season 2.
Locke and Key Season 2 Plot
As Nina, Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode move into the Key House. They find several dark secrets and cross paths with a dangerous demonic entity called Dodge, who enters into their world from the Black door to get his hands on the Omega Key. In the season finale, we see the Locke siblings throw Dodge’s body back into the Black Door. Unfortunately for them, Dodge tricked them by using the identity key to make Ellie Whedon look like the female version of him. Thus, Dodge is still free and ready to possess and hurt others.
Season 2 will deal with Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode trying to throw the actual Dodge in the Black Door while trying to save Ellie. Additionally, Dodge also uses the identity key to make himself look like Gabe, who Kinsey is in love with. As she doesn’t know this as of yet, she thinks he is her friend and helper. This will endanger her siblings and her life in season 2. Will Gabe, aka Dodge, be able to kill the Locke siblings and get his hands on the Omega Key? Or will he be caught and sent back to the hell he came from?
Moreover, in Season 2, the siblings must take down Dodge and another demon that escaped in the last episode of Season 1. A few new magical keys will also be added, but the producers have refused to tell us their abilities. All in all, the second season will feature more horrors, more dangers, and more trouble for the Lockes.
