Netflix is the ultimate destination for people to have tons of content based on any genre they prefer. One of the most prominent genres that have risen over the years is the live adaptations of comic book stories and characters.
First premiered in 2020, Locke and Key is a horror drama live TV adaptation of the comic book series of the same name. Created by Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and Aron Eli Coleite, the series has already treated viewers with 2 seasons, and the question arises whether the fun will continue and people will get to see Locke and Key Season 3.
Will there be a Season 3 of Locke and Key?
This series has seen a well successful response from the viewers, and this is why it was instantly renewed for Season 3 while still being in production for the second season. So, it’s official that Locke and Key Season 3 is confirmed and happening.
Locke and Key Season 3 Filming Updates
The filming of Locke and Key Season 3 was completed back in 2021. And it has been in post-production since then. Moreover, Netflix is yet to announce any new updates.
One of the comic book creators, Joe Hill, responded to a fan about the updates for the next season.

He also hinted toward a possibility of the Sandman crossover, which was rumored in many articles.
I’ve seen a few articles now teasing the possibility of a Locke & Key/Sandman crossover on Netflix & thought I’d jump in for a clickbait check.
Like most Sandman hardcores I’m looking forward to a big, sweeping, faithful adaptation of Neil’s stories. Can’t wait.

Locke and Key Season 3 Release Date
The release date has yet to be determined, even though filming was completed in September 2021. Assuming that the post-production stage will take time, it is evident that a series with such complex action scenes will require time to be executed properly.
On the other hand, many sources claim that the series will be released in May 2022, during the summer.
What to expect in the upcoming season?
- Season 2 ended with episode 10, in which Locke faced off against Doge in a “famous showdown,” with Bode confronted by a surprising visitor.
- Dodge appears to be defeated, but Frederick Gideon is now the biggest baddy heading into Season 3.
- Fredrick is a reincarnation of a groundbreaking battle soldier who has been possessed by The Black Door’s most powerful demon.

So far, there has been no official confirmation of the cast’s appearance or many announcements of anyone’s departure from the series, which is a good sign for fans expecting the original actors to return in the franchise’s third installment.
Where to watch Locke and Key Season 3?
The series will premiere on Netflix just like the previous two seasons.
How many episodes are in Locke and Key Season 3?
