Locke And Key Season 4 Potential Netflix Release Date, Cast & Story
Locke And Key Season 3 has just landed on Netflix today, and some fans are already asking about Season 4. Is Netflix making a fourth season of the show? Does this potential Locke And Key Season 4 have a released date? If so, when could it be released, and who might star in it? These are all questions that fans of Locke And Key will be asking themselves right now.
Before we get into all of that, the Google algorithm demands us to use certain keywords a bunch of times, so please, bear with me whilst I get all of that stuff out of the way.
Here’s Locke And Key’s official plot synopsis (courtesy of Netflix):
After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father’s death. As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and will stop at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), Locke & Key is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family. Locke and Key on Netflix is the television adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW Entertainment and returns October 22 for Season 2.
Locke And Key Season 4: is it happening?
So, Locke And Key Season 3 finished filming a while back, which is pretty insane. They basically filmed seasons 2 and 3 back to back. But what do we know about Locke And Key Season 4?
So, even though We Got This Covered wrote an article in which they claimed that Locke And Key Season 4 was in the works, it turns out that Netflix has opted to cancel the show after Season 3.
We Got This Covered claimed that Netflix is planning to make four seasons of the show in total. WGTC has a slightly patchy record with these sorts of scoops, and they proved to be very wrong on this one.
The show’s creators and writers probably wanted to make a fourth season, but it was revealed pretty soon after Season 3 of the show was greenlit that it would be the show’s final season. This is sad because I and many others really did love the show.
However, I do understand why they opted to cancel the programme, and three seasons isn’t a bad run for a Netflix show. They also got to give the series and pretty solid ending with Season 3.
When could Lock And Key Season 4 be released?
So, with this in mind, there is no release date for Locke And Key Season 4 since it’s not happening. I could just stop the article here, and that would be fine.
However, I do want to state on the record that I believe Netflix should have given the series one more season. I believe this mainly because of the way Season 3 of Locke And Key ended. It kind of ended on a cliffhanger, with (spoilers) a final key being teased.
They could have filmed a fourth season of the show pretty quickly, and we could have seen it on the streaming platform in 2023, or early 2024 if they had given it the greenlight.
Who could star in Season 4?
If they had greenlit a Season 4, then we could have seen much of the show’s main cast return for what would have been the logical time to end the series (with a fourth season, I mean).
This is a rather odd situation to be in because I’m talking about a hypothetical season of a show that’s been cancelled. However, let’s go over who could have starred in Locke And Key Season 4.
That’s a very difficult thing to predict. I do think that the Locke kids would have all been back for Season 4. I also think their mother would have returned for a fourth season.
So that means that Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones and Jackson Robert Scott could have all starred in a fourth season of the Netflix show.
We’ll let you know as soon as anything changes or is announced regarding Locke And Key Season 4. I mean, they could end up bringing it back if there’s a big appetite for it and if someone starts a petition to ‘renew Locke And Key‘ on Change.org. (Hint, hint).
