The mystery series “Locke & Key” has already cast a spell over many fans worldwide. The second season only appeared in October and ended with a big cliffhanger. Of course, everyone wants to know when and how things will continue. Warning: Contains spoilers for seasons 1 and 2.
“Locke & Key” Season 3: Do We Have A Release Date?
Unfortunately, there is no exact release date for the third season of “Locke & Key.” But the good news that there will be a third season was confirmed some time ago. The shooting was already in progress and was completed in August 2021. The official Instagram account has also announced that season 3 of “Lockey & Key” will come in 2022. When is not yet certain, but fans can expect that the new season of the Netflix series will likely be seen on the streaming platform in late summer/autumn 2022.
“Locke & Key” Season 3: Who’s In The Cast?
In season 3, we will, of course, keep the three Locke siblings, Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott), as well as their mother Nina (Darby Stanchfield) and Uncle Duncan (Aaron Ashmore).
It is also sure that Sherri Saum will play a leading role as Ellie Whedon after her return in season 2. She will undoubtedly take her son Rufus (Coby Bird) back to Matheson. Not to forget, of course, our villain Captain Gideon (Kevin Durand) and some classmates and friends of the Locke family, such as Jamie (Liyou Abere) and Josh Benett (Brendan Hines) or Scot (Petrice Jones). So we’ll see many familiar faces in season 3 of “Locke & Key,” but we’re sure to see some new ones as well.
“Locke & Key” Season 3: What Should Happen Next?
Seasons one and two of the series were based on the “Locke & Key” comic books by writer Joe Hill and illustrator Gabriel Rodriguez. The Dodge storyline ended with the last volume, as in the series. Because in the final episode of season 2, the Locke siblings defeat Dodge with the help of their friends.
But now it goes on, except for a prequel for the “Locke & Key” series, without the presentation of the comics. But of course, the creators of the series still have some ideas up their sleeves: “We have some incredible adventures in store for the Locke family in season 3 and couldn’t be more excited to tell our story […]”, says Carlton Cuse, producer of the series.
In the closing scenes of the second season, you can already see how the story would continue. A new villain comes into play: The Echo of Captain Gideon or the demon that inhabits him. Who is this Gideon? Captain Frederick Gideon is a cruel soldier from the American War of Independence. Even then, he had targeted the Locke family and even killed their ancestor Peter Locke.
In addition, Kinsey and Bode Locke will have to do without the help of their older brother Tyler, as he is about to turn 18 and has decided against using the memory key. If he doesn’t change his mind, he’ll forget all about magic and the keys. So there is also a lot to do in season 3.
