Locke and Key (Season 2): Production Status
It is reported that the shooting of the third season actually started before season 2 was also released on Netflix.
Carlton Cuse stated the planning that was always to have the third season with him by telling Collider “We had actually already written a good chunk of Season 3 before we even started filming Season 2.”
It was reported for the first time that the filming on Locke & Key season 3 starts in early May 2021. The shooting then had been continued the entire summer and also into the Autumn.

It seems that most production of the series will run through to the end of November 2021 and also it has been sound post to take place until the end of February 2022.
Locke and Key (Season 2): Expectations
We have previously seen that season 2 was ended with episode 10 that had seen Locke’s go head to head with Doge in a ‘famous showdown” with Bode confronting such a shocking visitor.
It seems that Dodge may be defeated but now Frederick Gideon is also going to be the biggest baddy going into season 3. Fredrick is an echo of such a revolutionary battle soldier who has been possessed and notably The Black Door’s most formidable demon. It is quite interesting that the story of the series is now mostly different from the comic books.
Netflix reveals such a broad overview of the third season in their Geeked 2022 preview:
“The Locke family uncovers more magic within the key house, while a new threat- the most dangerous one yet – looms in Matheson with plans of his own for the keys. From Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill, Locke & Key6 is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define the family. Locke and Key on Netflix is the television adaptation of the best selling televisions adaptation of the best selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW Entertainment.”
It seems that Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill telling Collider teased a few things about season 3 containing that Tyler not using the memory kill will have consequences sayi8ng “ decision does have consequences and will change his relationships to his family. You will see that play out.”
Meredith Averill said based on season 3:
“ The third season focuses much more heavily on the family. They are going to face the greatest threat they have had to face yet. That really bonds them in a way that we have never seen before. I cannot say more than that. Part of our challenge, that we happily take on, is that every season, we need to outdo the season before it. It is a challenge, but it is a fun one and I think we have been able to do that.”
Locke and Key (Season 3): Release Date
It is upsetting that we do not have any exact release fate confirmed for that season 3 that will be among the 2022 Netflix roster of shows.
It was confirmed back in November 2021 as part of Netflix’s “Get Geeked” campaign that was listed Locke & Key season 3amongst other “genre” shows scheduled for 2022 and containing Alice in Borderland, The Witcher: Blood Origin, the Midnight Club, and The Sandman.
