Netflix always gives its audience something to always look forward to when it comes to supernatural shows. This time around its back with Season 3 'Locke & Key'. As Deadline revealed exclusively in April, the upcoming third season will be the supernatural thriller series’ last.

When does ‘Locke & Key’ release?
The ten-episode series will finally be back on our screens on August 10 for season three.
What is ‘Locke & Key’ all about?
At this point, the show has largely diverged from its source material, so you won't necessarily find any answers there about what comes next. It does sound like it's about to be the most intense season yet, though. Meredith Averill told Collider, "The third season focuses much more heavily on the family. They’re gonna face the greatest threat they’ve had to face yet. That really bonds them in a way that we’ve never seen before."
It's hard to say what that might mean exactly, but it seems likely that the "threat" she's referring to is Captain Frederick Gideon. At the end of Season 2, Eden used the Echo Key to bring back Gideon as an echo, and now he plans to get revenge on our favorite demon-fighting fam.
Who stars in 'Locke & Key'?
The cast of the show includes Tyler Locke (Connor Jessup), Kinsey Locke (Emilia Jones), Bode Locke (Jackson Robert Scott), Nina Locke (Darby Stanchfield), Duncan Locke (Aaron Ashmore), Scot Cavendish (Petrice Jones), Josh Bennett (Brendan Hines), and Frederick Gideon (Kevin Durand). Another person we'll be seeing a bit more is Ellie Whedon, who is played by Sherri Saum.
Connor Jessup is a Canadian actor, writer, and director. Jessup began acting at the age of 11 as a child actor. Jessup got a lead role in the children's television series 'The Saddle Club'. He served as executive producer for the independent film 'Amy George', which played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. In 2012, Jessup starred in the Canadian independent film 'Blackbird', in which he played a troubled teen falsely accused of planning a school shooting.
In 2017, it was announced that Jessup would be directing a documentary profile of Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul for FilmStruck and The Criterion Collection. The film was released in the spring of 2018. Jessup is gay and came out publicly in a post on Instagram in June 2019.
