Netflix takes viewers into the Keyhouse with the anticipated trailer for Locke & Key, the long-awaited adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez's IDW graphic novels of the same name.

The new trailer offers a look into the 10-episode first season of the adaptation of the Lovecraftian IDW comic book series that follows three siblings and their mother as they move into a creepy mansion in Maine that is home to more than just cobwebs and creaky floorboards.

The new cast includes Darby Stanchfield, Emilia Jones, Connor Jessup and Jackson Robert Scott as the Locke family who moves into the mansion (with Scott the only actor to carry over from the core cast of the project when it was previously set up at Hulu).

Joe Hill executive produces Locke & Key along with Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill, who also serve as co-showrunners. Additionally, Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti are among the executive producing team for the series.

When the Locke & Key series was at Hulu, a writers' room reportedly put together seven scripts for the show, but Netflix redeveloped the existing scripts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aron Eli Coleite (Star Trek: Discovery, The River, Heroes) rewrote "the pilot episode alongside comic creator Joe Hill."

"Locke & Key, written by Joe Hill, is a horror/fantasy series that revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts 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."
