Recently we let you guys know that Hulu dumped Andy Muschietti’s TV series adaptation of Joe Hill’s hit graphic novel series, Locke & Key. And today we have word that Netflix may be picking up the series after seeing the pilot and 7 previously scripted issues.
A representative from Netflix reached out to That Hashtag Show to let them know that the deal is not yet final, however, when asked for an update about the status of discussions, David Ozer, President of IDW Entertainment, said:
“Being such an important franchise for IDW Entertainment, we hope to have an announcement regarding the Locke & Key series in the near future.”
The pilot is directed by Andy Muschietti and stars Frances O’Connor, Danny Glover, Jack Mulhern, Jackson Robert Scott, Megan Charpentier, Owen Teague, and Nate Corddry. Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel) acts as showrunner.
The show will (hopefully) air somewhere in 2018.
