Locke and Key, Netflix's new series based on the fantastic comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, had a long road towards debuting on the streaming service – and as of March 30 2020, it's getting a second season.
The first season of Locke and Key debuted on February 7, and episodes of Locke and Key season 2 were being written before the next series was even confirmed.
Below, read our best guesses at Locke and Key season 2's release date, and what we might expect from a follow-up year of the show.

Locke and Key season 2 release date: what do we know?

Locke and Key season 2 was confirmed in late March 2020. That means it's unlikely you'll see the show return until Spring 2021 at the earliest, but fans will no doubt be relieved at the renewal news.
Scripts were being written before the show was even renewed, though. "We’re in the middle of writing season 2, so we’re optimistic and hopeful that we’re gonna get a chance to make season 2," producer Carlton Cuse told Collider. "We very much know what it is because Meredith [Averill, executive producer] and I are in the middle of overseeing the writers’ room and we’re working on that right now."
Locke and Key season 2 could blend the comics and original stories
Locke and Key season 2 will apparently feature some original stories, but there's still plenty of material to adapt from the comics in years to come. "There definitely are stories left in the comics that we want to hold onto, to use in future seasons," Cuse said in that same Collider interview. "So, it still remains a bit of a remix, of pulling from stories from the comic and our own original stories."
