The American fantasy-horror series follows the lives of the Locke family after Rendell Locke gets murdered by one of his students. Within time his wife and children learn about the existence of magic keys that can be used to unlock various doors in magical ways. But before long, there’s a demonic entity hunting down the family as that creature wants the keys to themselves. 

Ultimately these storyline rules the first three seasons of Locke and Key. And with a heavy emphasis on the emotional relationship between the Locke family, the series soon proved to be much-loved by its audiences. But will there be any more seasons for its core audience to enjoy?

Will there be a season 4 of the Netflix series Locke and Key – renewed or cancelled status?

Status: Cancelled / not renewed. 

It was decided well in advance that the third season of the supernatural series Locke and Key would be its last! While the early finish may not be what all fans wanted, the producers had always intended for the series to finish after three seasons. And as a result, Locke and Key gets to provide its audience with a proper (and hopefully much loved) ending.

In some ways, it’s a miracle that Locke and Key even lasted three seasons. For a while, it seemed that the story would never get to grace itself on the small screen. This is because, in 2011, a different pilot for the series was made. Starring Sarah Bolger, Jesse McCartney, Miranda Otto, and Mark Pellegrino, the FOX-produced series, despite getting positive reviews, never made it past one episode. But thankfully, Netflix saw something in the show, and, as they say, the rest is history.

So whilst you may be disappointed that Locke and Key ended after just three seasons, it’s exactly what the producers had wanted, and the fact that Locke and Key got a proper ending is a feat in itself.

What do you to the news regarding Locke and Key season 4? Are you disappointed or happy that the series got to finish properly?
