‘Locke & Key’ Season 2 Adds New Villain, Drops Trailer

Netflix is no longer keeping the second season of its popular Locke & Key series under…well, lock and key.

The streamer this week released the full trailer for Season 2–which debuts on Netflix Oct. 22–and shed some light on a new major character, as reported by Deadline. Check out the video clip on this page.

The new addition to the cast–played by Kevin Durand (Swamp ThingThe Strain)–is Frederick Gideon, described as a “ruthless, charismatic and cunning captain during the British Revolutionary War, who becomes a dangerous adversary for the Locke Family.” Durand has signed on to be a regular for Seasons 2 and 3 of Locke & Key.

The show’s main cast also features Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Jackson Robert Scott, Petrice Jones, Griffin Gluck, Aaron Ashmore, Brendan Hines and Hallea Jones.

Locke & Key–adapted from the bestselling IDW comic book by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez by showrunners Cuse and Meredith Averill–follows the three Locke siblings and their mother, who move into their ancestral home of Keyhouse following their father’s murder.

The siblings discover that the house is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father’s death. And, as they explore the keys and their strange powers, “a mysterious demon awakens–that will stop at nothing to steal the keys.”
