Netflix has released a first look at what's in store for the Locke siblings in the brand new season of Locke & Key, which will debut on the platform in October 2021.
In the first season, we saw the Locke family move into their dad's ancestral estate after his gruesome murder, where they discover magical keys that may unlock the secret of who they are and what happened to their dad.
In the newly released trailer, Gabe (Griffin Gluck) says: "This world had so much potential to be reborn and consumed, to be ruled. It's time to finish what I started."
The trailer features creepy music and a whole new host of challenges that the Lockes must contend with, including alchemy, more magical keys, and some old enemies.
Season one ended with the Lockes believing they had gotten rid of the 'big bad', a demon, from the town of Matheson. But, the show left audiences on a cliffhanger by showing us that the evil entity had in fact inhabited someone else.
Though the trailer only hints at this, it is likely the show will continue to explore what happens with this 'big bad' and how it will affect them all.
The second season is also teasing more magic, more power, and an overall darker turn for the storyline.
Locke & Key's co-showrunner Meredith Averill previously said: "In the first season, we always thought of it as being the story of the kids learning that they're the Keepers of the Keys. With season two, we want to explore wha that responsibility means."
The Locke family will also be "dealing with things far heavier than the death of their father" in the new season as the show runners intend to "deepen the characters' lives and the issues they're dealing with".
The first 10 episode run was released in February 2020.
Fans are clearly excited for the new show, with one commenting underneath Netflix's announcement: "It's about time!!!"
Another wrote: "Great news."
A third said: "Finally! Can't wait to watch this."
The show, based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's graphic novels, stars Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Jackson Robert Scott, Petrice Jones, Bill Heck, Thomas Mitchell Barnett, Coby Bird, Jesse Camacho, Asha Bromfield, Griffin Gluck, Hallea Jones, Aaron Ashmore, Liyuo Abere, and Brendan Hines.
Locke & Key will be available to stream on Netflix on October 22.
