During the Geeked Week 2022 event of Netflix, the release date for Locke and Key Season 3 was released. The series' third season was already announced in December 2020, almost a full year before the second season of Locke and Key. Principal photography for the series has also started before the Locke and Key season 2 premiered, with the cast and crew getting to work in May 2021. Filming ended sometime in late September 2021.

In terms of its performance, the show achieved relatively good ratings when it was first released, averaging around five weeks on the top charts. Locke and Key reportedly performed well in other countries like Russia, Italy, Pakistan, and India.

Locke and Key season 3 has been pretty much guaranteed right after the first season came out and gained acclaim. Most of the cast from the first two seasons will return to play the characters we have come to know and love for Locke and Key season 3. We can expect to see the members of the Locke family with the sibling played by Connor Jessup as Tyler, Emilia Jones as Kinsey, and Jackson Robert Scott as Bode. We will also see the older family members with Darby Stanchfield as Nina and Aaron Ashmere as Duncan.

There have been several directors who led episodes for the show. We still have no information about who directed the chapters for season 3, but we may see some new directors taking on the monumental task of telling the story of the Locke family.

Locke and Key season 3 writers Cuse and Averill said that the final part of the series will focus more on the family and how they overcome the challenges that are still in store for them.

In an interview with the Collider, Cuse and Averill started discussing their plans for the season.

Carlton and I always start each season just talking amongst ourselves about what the themes of the season are, what the stories are that we naturally set up at the end of last season that we really wanna pay off, and what some stories are from within the comics that we’re most excited about trying to include in the season, and then what we want to see our characters tackle and what journeys we wanna see them go on. Early on, a big idea that we wanted to tackle right away was, how and when is Kinsey going to discover that she is dating a demon? That was first and foremost, the challenge of deciding when she was gonna figure it out and what the breadcrumbs would be. We really loved this idea of being able to tell the story of their realization that when they hit 18, that’s the age at which you stop being able to experience magic. We really loved that metaphor of coming of age and hitting that threshold when you become an adult, and what happens if you’re not ready for that and you’re gonna try to hold on? That really became Tyler’s story. And we knew we wanted to give Nina a love interest this season, so we started talking about that story and that character. That’s where we started, in our very early talks about what we wanted to see this season.

By season 2, the Locke siblings have already found a lot of keys in the house, and they have also learned how to use the keys to their advantage. Dodge was killed off as season 2 was closing, but we know that Frederick Gideon has more surprises in store for the Locke family.

With the ending of season 2 in mind and the writer's goals, we can expect to see each of the remaining members of the Locke family come into their own and remember that, for them, most especially, family is everything.

The first two seasons of Locke and Key came with ten episodes each, but the third season of Locke and Key will only have eight episodes. The creative team of the show chose to shorten the number of episodes for the series, so we can expect each episode to be more action-packed than the last.
