Joe Hill’s Locke & Key comic book series is loved by fans the world over and adapting it into a TV series has been a hard task for its developers.
However, following the positive reception of its debut season in February 2020, Locke & Key is returning to Netflix for its highly anticipated second season in October 2021.
But just when is the release time of Locke & Key season 2 and how many episodes feature in the new instalment?
Locke & Key season 1 recap
Season 1 of Locke & Key arrived on Netflix on February 7th, 2021.
Based on the Joe Hill comics of the same name, the series tells the story of the three Locke siblings, Tyler, Kinsey and Bode.
Alongside their mother Nina, the trio flees to their father Rendell’s family home after he is killed by a former student of his, Sam Lesser.
Once at the mysterious Keyhouse, the children discover a number of keys around the house that possess magical qualities.
However, the Locke siblings soon learn that a demonic presence named Dodge is also searching for the magical keys in the hopes of finding the elusive Omega Key which opens the Black Door, a gateway to a dark dimension of more demonic beings waiting to break free and enslave humanity.
By the end of season 1, the gang believe that they have defeated Dodge, but the evil being has possession of the Identity Key and can shapeshift and has been hiding in plain sight as Kinsey’s boyfriend, Gabe.
With Dodge still on the loose, season 2 promises to be an even more frightening affair for the Lockes.
Locke & Key season 2 release time
Season 2 of Locke & Key will be released on Friday, October 22nd at midnight Pacific Time in the US.
Like most Netflix releases, Locke and Key will be arriving at the same time around the world.
This translates to 3am ET in the US, 8am here in the UK, 12:30pm in India and 6pm in Sydney, Australia.
Season 2 promises to be an even more gripping adventure for the Locke siblings as the evil Dodge is still on the loose and is in the process of hatching a daring plan to claim the all-powerful Omega Key.
How many episodes in season 2?
Season 2 of Locke & Key will consist of 10 episodes in total.
The episode count should come as little surprise to fans as it features the same amount of chapters as season 1.
For season 1, episodes had an average runtime of roughly 47 minutes and we’d expect the same for the new season, meaning fans should be prepared for around eight hours of watch time.
On top of that, Locke & Key has already been renewed by Netflix for a third season, meaning that there are plenty more adventures to come.
Season 2 of Locke and Key will be available to stream on Netflix from October 22nd, 2021.
