The Live-Action LOCKE & KEY Series Has Been Picked Up By Netflix For A 10-Episode Season

After year's of trying to get the Locke & Key series off the ground, the live-action show has finally found a home on Netflix, earning a season consisting of 10 hour-long episodes and a second showrunner.

Ever since Hulu passed on the pilot, the live-action series based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez's Locke & Key has been searching for a new home. And now, after two months of reports suggesting the series might land on Netflix, the streaming giant has officially picked up the project.

However, the series is going to experience a lot of changes before it heads to its new home, as Netflix will redevelop and recast the entire show. These changes also include the addition of Meredith Averill (The Good Wife) as co-showrunner, putting her alongside Carlton Cuse (Lost) who has been attached to Locke & Key since development began.

And while IT director Andy Muschietti is no longer set to helm the pilot episode, he and his sister will act as executive producers for the 10-episode season. One other addition to the list of producers is Aaron Eli Coleite who, along with the comic creator Joe Hill, also rewrote the pilot script.
