Locke & Key Season 3 - What We Know So Far

Netflix's "Locke & Key" is one of the numerous projects "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse has produced since that iconic ABC show ended in 2010, in addition to successful adaptations like "Bates Motel" and Amazon's "Jack Ryan." "Locke & Key" is based on comics of the same name written by Joe Hill. The story follows the Locke children after they move into the Keyhouse and discover magical keys that unlock both wonders and dangers.

"Locke & Key" has been a success for Netflix, evidenced by the fact that a Season 3 was ordered ahead of the Season 2 premiere last year. Both seasons of the series have been viewed by Netflix subscribers for over one billion minutes, so it should go without saying that more than a few fans are anticipating the return of the series (per Cheat Sheet). Here is everything we know so far about the confirmed Season 3 of "Locke & Key."

Locke & Key Season 3 filming has wrapped

Season 3 of "Locke & Key" has been in production for some time, with producer Carlton Cuse saying "a good chunk" had been written before Season 2 even premiered in 2021 (via Collider). With the production confirmed since last year, it's likely "Locke & Key" will drop sometime this year, but Netflix has not announced a release date. Author Joe Hill even confirmed in October that filming had already wrapped on the series (via Twitter). Thankfully, no major cast members have announced anything that would lead fans to believe they weren't returning for Season 3.

One big bit of casting news is that actress Sherri Saum has been promoted to a series regular for the upcoming Season 3 after being featured as recurring character Ellie Whedon since the show premiered in 2020. Saum has mastered her craft appearing on popular shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit."

Season 2 appropriately ended with an episode titled "Cliffhanger" and teased a possessed Revolutionary War soldier played by "Lost" veteran Kevin Durand as the new primary antagonist. It's another exciting addition to the cast as Durand is something of an expert at onscreen villains at this point. On top of his work on "Lost," he's also appeared in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood."
