The series, based on the comics by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, follows three siblings who move into a supernatural estate following their father’s murder.
“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke & Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Monday. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”
The two had already been working on scripts for a second season before the official renewal. With production mostly shutdown in Hollywood due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, it’s unclear when season two will begin filming.
Griffin Gluck, whose character Gabe takes a villainous turn at the end of season one, says he can’t wait for more “mischief” in season two.
“I couldn’t expect a thing because whatever I think is going to happen is going to get twisted and turned 700 ways to the point where I’m going to be confused myself and that’s what I love about the show, is you never know what’s going to happen,” Gluck tells ABC Audio.
He adds, “I’m just more looking forward to finding out what’s going on…I just hope my character gets into a lot of mischief.”
Season one of Locke & Key is streaming on Netflix now.
