After FOX failed to pick up a pilot of Locke & Key a few years ago and a movie was killed last year, many thought the possibility of finally getting the award-winning comic book series on a screen of any kind was unlikely. But fear not, IDW Entertainment just announced they’re developing a straight to series version of Locke & Key for television!
The author and creator Joe Hill will write the pilot and serve as executive producer (which is a great sign) saying “the six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.” Is it too early to ask for six seasons and a movie?
This trailer from the failed pilot might give an inkling of what we can expect from the TV series.
Honestly, it’s too early to speculate exactly what the TV show will look like or even when it will be released, but it’s safe to say comic to TV show successes like The Walking Dead have demonstrated the audience for dark and terrifying TV show adaptations is huge. The possibilities are endless and we can’t wait to see Locke & Key on our TV screens ASAP.
