Netflix recently released the third season of one of its most popular fantasy horror shows, Locke and Key. Based on an IDW comic book series of the same title by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, the series originally debuted on Netflix in February 2020, and has filled the Stranger Things-shaped hole in fans' lives, airing the first two seasons between the show's three-year break. Now, it's back for a third season, but one of the biggest fans have is: "Will there be Locke and Key Season 4?".
Starring Darby Stanchfield, Emilia Jones, Connor Jessup, Jackson Robert Scott as the Locke family - all of whom discover a number of mysterious keys throughout the house they move into, known as the Keyhouse. These keys can be used to unlock various doors in supernatural ways, and they soon become aware of a demonic being that is also searching for the keys for its own evil purposes.
If you're wondering if there will be a fourth season, check out what we know below:
Is Locke and Key Season 4 confirmed?
Locke & Key fans have certainly enjoyed the show's exciting run over the last couple of years, but unfortunately, Netflix already confirmed that there won't be a fourth season.
In early 2022, Netflix officially confirmed that Season 3 would be the final Locke & Key season. Co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill shared a statement (quoted by Deadline) explaining why it's the last.
“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.”
Some fans might be sad to hear this news, but better to end the show in a good note than to drag it out. Who knows? Maybe Netflix will create a spin-off in the future. After all, Stranger Things is already confirmed to get a spin-off, but for now, let's not expect too much.
All three seasons of Locke & Key are now available to watch on Netflix. You can watch the trailer for the final season below:
