It was reported earlier this year that the horror comic Locke & Key might be picked up by Netflix for an original series. And now it has been officially confirmed by the online video streaming giant. Netflix is developing an original series based on the popular horror comic series Locke & Key.
It was first reported that Netflix had taken an interest in the project after Hulu passed on a pilot that it had ordered. The Hollywood Reporter also reveals that Netflix has picked up the show for its first season which will have 10 episodes. This is great news for fans of the comic.
The comic series was created by horror author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. It is based on the Locke family and the events that transpire after they relocate to their ancestral home in Lovecraft, Maine, after the murder of the head of the family.
The three children discover magical keys in the house that give special powers to whoever holds them. Also powerful, sinister forces are trying to get the keys and bring an evil presence into the world.
Netflix’s version is apparently a redevelopment of the Hulu pilot. Carlton Cuse is the showrunner. Hopefully fans like it.
