When Daily Dead took part in a Locke & Key roundtable call earlier this year, co-showrunner (along with Carlton Cuse) Meredith Averill said that they have "...stories for a few seasons to come percolating in our brains...", and now one of those future seasons has become a reality, as Netflix has officially renewed the adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez's beloved IDW graphic novels for a second season.

The renewal news was announced on Locke & Key's official Twitter account (see below). A premiere date and episode count for the second season (the first season consists of 10 episodes) have yet to be revealed, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are announced.

In the meantime, check out highlights from the "Inside Keyhouse" press event and Sara Clements' review of the first season, and in case you missed it, Castlevania was recently renewed for a fourth season by Netflix.

"After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father's death. As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens — and will stop at nothing to steal them. From Carlton Cuse ( Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill ( The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family.

Locke & Key on Netflix is the long awaited television adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez for IDW Entertainment. Locke & Key stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott ( IT) as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup ( American Crime) as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones ( Horrible Histories: The Movie) as Kinsey Locke, Bill Heck ( The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) as Rendell Locke, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Sherri Saum as Ellie Whedon, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck ( American Vandal) as Gabe, Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon. Executive Producers for Locke & Key are: Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, Aron Eli Coleite, Joe Hill, Chris Ryall with Lydia Antonini and Ted Adams for IDW, Lindsey Springer for Genre Arts, Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion, Tim Southam, Michael Morris, John Weber and Frank Siracusa for Take 5."
