The official logline reads as follows:

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.

Locke & Key was originally developed by Fox for the 2010-2011 TV season.

Despite not being given a series order, the network went on to show the pilot at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con.

Hulu then ordered a new pilot in 2017 but declined to give it a series commitment in 2018, leaving producers scrambling to get the show on the air.

Netflix then ordered a brand new iteration of the series, but the Hulu pilot was discarded.

Yes, it's been a long road to the screen for this project, and we're sure the new home will be the perfect one for the show.
