However, it is unknown whether multiple books will be covered in a single season. The basic premise of the series according to Netflix states, “In London, where the most gifted teenage ghost-hunters venture nightly into perilous combat with deadly spirits, amidst the many corporate, adult-run agencies, one stands alone: independent of any commercial imperative or adult supervision – a tiny startup, run by two teenage boys and a newly arrived, supremely psychically gifted girl, a renegade trio destined to unravel a mystery that will change the course of history: Lockwood & Co.”
According to Collider, quote, “Lockwood & Co follows three teenage ghost hunters in the midst of a haunting epidemic in London. Two gifted boys and a girl displaying “extraordinary psychic abilities” (think along the lines of Eleven from Stranger Things) make up the trio. Lucy Carlyle (Ruby Stokes), the young psychic, joins forces with two gifted boys Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) and George Cubbins (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) at their small startup company Lockwood & Co. The no-adults-allowed company task themselves with keeping the streets of London safe, battling with evil undead spirits night after night.”

I can’t wait for us to take up our rapiers, salt bombs and iron chains and get to work.”
