Locke & Key | Official Trailer | Netflix

Netflix will bring audiences back to Keyhouse for more mystery and dark magic with a second season of Locke & Key.

The return of the supernatural series was initially announced on Facebook by IDW Publishing, the publisher of the comic book series that inspired the show. The series’ renewal was then confirmed on Twitter by Netflix with a brief video featuring a spinning key with a “2” engraved in it.

The announcement was not accompanied by any indication of when season 2 of Locke & Key will premiere, but given that the season has yet to begin filming and most television productions are currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the show probably won’t return until sometime in 2021 at the earliest.

Season 1 of Locke & Key premiered in February 2020 and introduced audiences to the Locke family, who leave their home in Seattle to move to a quiet town in Massachusetts. Now living in the family’s ancestral home, known as Keyhouse, the children soon discover that the house holds many secrets — including a set of powerful keys that give them fantastic and occasionally terrifying abilities.

Their discovery puts them at odds with a mysterious entity who’s also searching for the keys and has a long history with both Keyhouse and their father, whose murder prompted the family’s return to Massachusetts.

Jack Wolfe on The Magic Flute and Shadow and Bone season 2
A boy sits on the floor with a flute in The Magic Flute.

At the first glance, The Magic Flute appears to be your regular, run-of-the-mill YA fantasy movie: a young boy with a distinctive scarf goes to a faraway school, where he discovers a magical land filled with snakes, princesses, and yes, a magic flute. The words "Harry" and "Potter" are never uttered, but the movie doesn't hide its similarities with a certain bespectacled boy wizard.

Yet as soon as the characters start singing -- and singing opera arias no less -- you realize this movie is quite different than any other fantasy movie out there. In a conversation with Digital Trends, lead actor Jack Wolfe talks about the challenges of starring in a film that's equal parts fantasy and musical, his love for the fantasy genre, and how his current role as Wylan Hendricks in season 2 of Shadow and Bone differs from his role as Tim in The Magic Flute.

shadow and bone season 2 when you can watch netflix show 1

One of 2021's breakout hits was Netflix's Shadow and Bone, a big-budget fantasy series that appealed to fans of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight franchises. Adapted from Israeli American author Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone young adult novel, the eight-episode series told the story of Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li), a young orphan raised in Ravka who discovers she is a Grisha, which means one who has special abilities. She must eventually combat the ominous threat of Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes), who is also known as The Darkling.

The first season of Shadow and Bone was a bit hit with critics and audiences alike, becoming only the third show on Netflix to remain at #1 in the ratings for 12 straight days. Naturally, a second season was quickly ordered, and last year, production commenced on the highly anticipated follow-up season. Fans know Shadow and Bone season 2 is just around the corner, but when exactly will it be released? And what additional information is out there about the season?
