From the comic book pages of IDW Publishing to the television screen, the writer’s room teases the “inspiration” behind Netflix’s upcoming horror/family drama, Locke & Key. Still in the works, the new Netflix drama with new scripts and cast as Locke & Key arrives at its latest streaming destination.
Based on the comic book by writer Joe Hill, colorist Jay Fotos, and artist Gabriel Rodriguez, Nina (Frances O’Connor) moves with her three childcare after the gruesome murder of her husband, their father. They end up staying at their ancestral home in Massachusetts. This house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. A devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
Here are 5 reasons we’re excited for Locke & Key:
5) The Board!

Writer/Producer Meredith Averill (Star-Crossed) writes on her official Twitter account, “Writers’ room inspiration board #LockeandKey”
4) What Does It Mean!?!
The board is filled with pinned images from the original IT miniseries, Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Memento, The Final Girls, and The Shining. I have to say, these writers know their horror. I also love the closeup of my favorite FBI agent, Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson).
3) Ten Episodes!
As we previously mentioned, Netflix has ordered a 10-episode first season for the hour-long series. With the source material at their disposal, I’m looking forward to what the writers will change, twist around, and take from the best-selling comic book.
2) The Netflix Audience!
Netflix knows its demographic, especially with their horror/family dramas, such as Stranger Things and Lost in Space. It’s safe to know Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode Locke will stay in the storefront and won’t be dumbed down. It makes sense that Netflix would fit the show for the audience, much like how Black Lightning moved from Fox to The CW Network.
1) The Pilot!

All I can say right now is, I can’t wait to see the pilot!
We look forward to binge-watching Locke & Key on Netflix.
