Netflix’s Horror Series ‘Locke & Key’ Starts Filming On February 4, Episode Runtime Are Likely 60 Min Long

Netflix doesn’t seem to be slowing down with its Horror projects. The streaming service/network is all set to start production on its upcoming series Locke & Key.

The series is an adaptation of IDW’s horror/fantasy drama comic by Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. According to a previous production listing report from Production Weekly, Locke & Key will begin filming on February 4.

One of Netflix’s recent Horror series, The Haunting of Hill House also had a runtime of 1 hour and more with most of its episode and the rest clocking in close to 60 minutes. The lengthy runtime was favored by the audience. Hopefully, for Netflix, the same scenario plays for Locke & Key.

Earlier in December, a report from Deadline announced that Connor Jessup and Emilia Jones have been added to its cast list. The two will be playing as brother Tyler and sister Kinsey Locke along with It movie star Jackson Robert Scott whose playing as the pair’s younger brother, Bode Locke.

Meredith Averill and Carlton Cuse are the showrunners with Michael Morris on board as director. Joe Hill will be writing the episodes along with Aron Eli Coleite.  Andy Muschietti is also part of the project as an executive producer along with Barbara Muschietti.

The project’s possible plot details for the series is as follows:

A one hour horror/fantasy drama adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill & artist Gabriel Rodriguez. After the brutal murder of husband & father Rendell Locke, the remaining Locke family–mom NINA & her kids, teenagers Tyler and Kinsey & little Bode– return to Rendell’s old family home, Keyhouse, in Matheson, MA, to try to put the trauma behind them. They soon discover their new home is inexplicably filled with magical keys with a host of exciting powers. They also encounter a destructive & evil entity named Dodge — whose origin & motive, they will discover, is mysteriously tied to their late patriarch and Keyhouse itself.
