The comic book series is a horror/fantasy based on three siblings who, after the murder of their father, move to the family home in MA. Netflix plans to redevelop the script and re-cast the series. Cuse and Averill will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.
Locke & Key centers around three siblings who move to their ancestral home in MA after their father is brutally murdered.
Back in May, we learned that Netflix had (in the parlance of our times) slid into the DMs of Carlton Cuse's Locke & Key after Hulu opted against taking the show to series. Netflix has announced that they have ordered ten hour-long episodes of the comic book adaptation, which comic co-creator Joe Hill co-wrote along with Aron Eli Coleite.
IDW's David Ozer and Ted Adams will also executive produce along with Genre Arts' Lindsey Springer, Coleite, Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs of Circle of Confusion. The original pilot was written by Cuse and Hill before Hulu passed, prompting the changeover and rewrite.

This marks a happy ending for Locke & Key, which previously was adapted during the 2010-11 development season when it reached the pilot stage at Fox with Josh Friedman writing, Mark Romanek directing and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci producing alongside DreamWorks TV. The series began in February of 2008 and is published through IDW Publishing. The unaired Fox pilot screened at Comic-Con in 2011.
The show is based on the long-running IDW Publishing title Locke & Key by Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
