Find out when you can expect to see Netflix’s Locke & Key

After months (or should that be years?) of low-key hype, Netflix has finally announced a release date for its upcoming adaptation of Locke & Key: expect to see the series on your Netflix home screens on 7 February 2020.

The streamer announced the news on a snazzy new poster for the show, above. Perhaps this means a trailer is on the way too?

Here’s the show’s synopsis:

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), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family.
