Watch The Locke & Key Featurette: From Comic To Screen

Netflix has released the first featurette for the long-awaited series adaptation of Locke & Key, highlighting the graphic novels’ journey from comic to screen and how the series thought of a different way to adapt the iconic head key from the source material. Based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s fantasy horror graphic novel of the same name, the series will be making its debut on February 7.

In Locke & Key, after their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father’s death. As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and will stop at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family.

The series will star Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones (Utopia) as Kinsey Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (It) as Bode Locke, Sherri Saum (How to Get Away with Murder) as Ellie Whedon, Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Griffin Gluck as Gabe, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Petrice Jones as Scot, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Steven Williams as Joe Ridgeway, Kevin Alves as Javi and Asha Bromfield as Zadie.

Gabriel Rodriguez & Joe Hill

The IDW Publishing Locke & Key comic book franchise, co-created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, has garnered both awards and acclaim during its ten-year run. It has been translated into dozens of languages across the globe and has sold millions of copies worldwide.
