Renewed Or Cancelled?
Locke and Key is Netflix’s long-running graphic novel adaptation, blending fantasy, drama and light bites of horror into an enjoyable adventure.
What is Locke and Key about?
The story itself revolves around three siblings, Bode, Kinsey and Tyler, who move back into their childhood home Key House. Aside from the haunting memories of their Father’s murder taking place inside, numerous magical keys also lie hidden around the house.
From here, the series settles down into a more consistent rhythm, swinging between teen drama and fantastical adventures as more of the past is uncovered (and as we later discover, comes back to haunt the family).
Across the three seasons the stakes raise as more keys are introduced to the main narrative.
We have ongoing coverage of Locke and Key across the site, including full season reviews and recaps for every episode. You can check that out HERE.
Has Locke and Key been renewed for season 4?
At the time of writing, Locke and Key has not been renewed for a fourth season. Given the ending though, that’s hardly surprising.
At the start of this year, Netflix and the creators came out to tell us that this would be the third and final series.
With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
However, as mentioned above we already know that Netflix haven’t renewed this one so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to not see a fourth season.
That’s perhaps for the best given reception from both critics and audiences alike for season 3 has been mixed… to put it nicely!
What we know about season 4 so far:
Nothing is known about season 4 as the show is now finished and will not be returning. We could see another studio sweep in and try to buy the rights to continue the story but there’s more chance of us seeing Warner Bro’s cancelled Batgirl movie than we have of that occurring!
