Fans React to Locke & Key’s Return

The Locke & Key fandom is counting down the minutes until Season 3 releases on the platform, and many will be staying up late to binge it all on opening night.

However, one fan took a stab at Netflix’s marketing for the show, claiming that they only saw the trailer for Season 3 today – the day before it premieres.

Is Locke & Key Season 3 the last?

Yes, Season 3 of Locke & Key will be the final season of the show, but the show was not cancelled.

Instead, Newsweek reported that co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill confirmed that three seasons of Locke & Key were planned from the beginning to bring the story to a satisfying end:

“Once we began working on the series, we felt three seasons was the ideal length to bring the story of the Locke family and their Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying conclusion.”

However, the same report shared Averill’s positivity towards the show continuing, should Netflix agree to keep it going:

“We’d love to do many, many seasons of the show. We love the show. The show has many stories left to tell, so I think that’s really a question for them [Netflix].”
