Yes! The Locke And Key TV series is finally happening with Scott Derrickson directing the pilot

April 20th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We’ve waiting a long time for this… IDW’s comic series Locke And Key, from Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, is finally looking like it’s heading for our TV screens!

The series almost made it in 2011 when FOX filmed Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci’s pilot episode (watch the trailer for that one at the bottom of the page), however it never made it to series, however hopefully the new series will be more successful.

Word on the street is that Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is set to direct the one-hour pilot episode which is being produced by Lost, Bate’s Motel and The Strains Carlton Cuse along with creators Hill, Rodriguez and IDW Publishing.


Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.


It’s a smart move getting Derrickson involved in the project as he is now still basking in the glow of Doctor Strange and having directed the likes of Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, he’s not stranger to the scary stuff; but it’s the attachment of Cuse that really has us most excited here at FTN. Lost is one of our all-time favourite shows here at FTN, and we’re big fans of Bates Motel and The Strain, so we can’t wait to see how this progresses.

We’ll keep you posted on Hulu’s Locke & Key as and well it develops.

Let us know if you’re as excited as we are…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
