The show's official social media accounts confirmed the news writing, "more keys, more demons, more aloha Locke & Key is officially returning for season two!!"
According to Deadline, season two "will see the stakes grow higher for the Locke siblings as they embrace their role as the new Keepers of the Keys."
Deadline writes that executive producers and co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill shared a message of the renewal.
“We are thrilled to be continuing the journey of Locke and Key alongside all of our amazing collaborators,” Cuse and Averill wrote. “We are grateful to Netflix for all their support, especially at this difficult time, and look forward to bringing you the exciting next chapter of our story.”
The first season of the spooky drama dropped on February 7 with 10 episodes. Variety claims that it spent "more than a decade in development at both Hulu and Netflix."
Based on comics by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, the show follows three siblings who move into a new home after their father's murder. While they're settling in, they find magical keys that give them the power to bend time.
The siblings soon realize that the keys are somehow connected to their father's tragic death. But tragedy strikes again when they unlock a demon with a quest to steal the children.

The series even has quite a few ties to Canada! IMDb claims that filming locations include Nova Scotia, Hamilton, Etobicoke, and Toronto. They write that Montague Street in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia was used for street scenes, and Humber College Lakeshore Campus in Etobicoke was used to stand in for Matheson Academy.
Plus stars Connor Jessup and Laysla De Oliveira. Both actors hail from Toronto and have been in the acting industry for years.
In an exclusive, Jessup revealed that filming during the frigid winter in Nova Scotia was "so much more unbearably cold than you can ever imagine from watching it."
Keen-eyed viewers might have noticed another familiar face. Life with Derek's Joy Tanner wasof the series as character Erin Voss. We grew up with Tanner on our screens as matriarch Nora McDonald-Venturi, and though she was born in Buffalo, New York, she actually became a Canadian citizen in the '90s.
