Well now. Here’s some news we really didn’t expect to be reporting. News that really, really sucks. Were you excited about Fox’s small screen adaptation of Joe Hill’s (son of Stephen King) Locke & Key? Looks like you’ll be containing that excitement for some time to come.
According to Entertainment Weekly, despite having all the pieces in place, it looks as if Fox will not be picking up the show for release for their next season. The project hasn’t been confirmed dead by the network, as they could retool it for a later release or it very well could be picked up by another outlet. See? Told you the news sucked.
Miranda Otto, Sarah Bolger, Jesse McCartney, Ksenia Solo, and Skylar Gaertner were all set star in the supernatural themed series.
“Locke & Key” revolves around Nina (Miranda Otto) and her three children, Tyler (Jesse McCartney), Kinsey (Sarah Bolger), and Bode (Skylar Gaertner), who survive an unspeakable horror and attempt to rebuild their lives at Keyhouse, their family home in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. It is a mysterious New England mansion with fantastic and transformative keys hidden inside its walls that are also being sought by a hate-filled and relentless creature with ties to the Locke family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish his sinister goals.
Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) wrote the pilot, which Mark Romanek was directing. Look for more soon!
