With its October release date, Locke and Key Season 2 arrives just in time for Halloween — and Netflix subscribers have a lot to get excited about as they move on to the new episodes. The comic series adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez will dig deeper into the lore surrounding Key House. It will also present the Locke siblings with new horrors to overcome.

When Is ‘Locke & Key’ Season 2 Coming?
Locke and Key Season 2 hits Netflix on October 22, 2021, which means it arrives just in time for the Halloween season. Given the horror elements of the series, this seems like the ideal time to dive into its second outing.
In September, the Netflix series announced its release date on Twitter with a teaser trailer that promised more twists on the horizon for both viewers and the Locke siblings.
The main cast of ‘Locke & Key’ is returning
Speaking of the Locke siblings, Tyler (Connor Jessup), Kinsey (Emilia Jones), and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott) will continue to be the centerpieces of the series in Season 2. The three actors are reprising their roles, as are most of the lead actors of the show.
Griffin Gluck promises to play a more prominent role in Locke and Key Season 2, which makes sense after the big twist of the first season. Although Gluck still looks like Gabe to the Locke family, he’s actually Dodge (Lesla de Oliveira) in disguise. Oliveira is back too, and it looks like the show’s villain has big plans in Season 2. A Now Near Eden (Helia Jones) will also play a big role and is likely to help Dodge plan.
In addition to those stars, Patrice Jones, Darby Stanchfield, and Aaron Ashmore have been confirmed for Season 2. Ashmore was made a series regular, so Duncan could unlock some of his memories around Locke’s House.

Plus, the gang is scrambling to dodge again. The teaser mainly focuses on the villains, but several shots show the Locke family and their friends dealing with threats. It looks like Key House could literally crumble under the weight of this season. Only time will tell if the place survives Dodge’s wrath.
