The Key siblings would continue to investigate all sorts of angles which could lead them to the truth behind their father’s mysterious death. They come together and retrieve the set of magical keys which belongs to them. As soon as they get those keys, it unleashes a throng of evil supernatural forces behind them who want to take the Locke siblings into their demonic possession.

The series is definitely much eerie and spooky considering the fact that Frederick Gideon (Kevin Durand) continues his spiteful quest for the set of keys and looks much scarier than ever.
The official synopsis reads, “The Locke family uncovers more magic within Keyhouse, while a new threat — the most dangerous one yet — looms in Matheson with plans of his own for the keys. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), Locke & Key is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family. Locke and Key on Netflix is the television adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW Entertainment”.

The other actors in cast of ‘Locke & Key’ season 3 include Connor Jessup, Emilia Jones, Darby Stanchfield, Jackson Robert Scott and several others.
The series ‘Locke & Key’ season 3 has been developed by Carlton Cuse, Meredith Averill, and Aron Eli Coleite. The series is based on the comic-book series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez.
Cuse and Averill serve as co-showrunners on the show, which comes from IDW Entertainment. They exec produce Season 3 alongside John Weber for Take 5, Frank Siracusa of Whizbang Films, Kevin Lafferty, Joe Hill, Ted Adams, Chris Ryall and Lydia Antonini for IDW, and Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion.
In an earlier interview with a global media publication in last year, Cuse and Averill opening up on how it was always their intention to wrap up ‘Locke & Key’ within three seasons had said, “Once we began working on the series, we felt three seasons was the ideal length to bring the story of the Locke family and their Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying conclusion. As storytellers, we are grateful that we had the opportunity to tell our version of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s incredible story exactly the way we wanted. We’re keeping the magical keys, though, for our own personal use”.
In another interview with a global media outlet in November 2021, opening up on how season three would focus on their bonding as a family, Cuse and Averill explained, “That really bonds them in a way that we've never seen before. I can't say more than that. Part of our challenge, that we happily take on, is that every season, we need to outdo the season before it. It's a challenge, but it's a fun one and I think we've been able to do that”.
Cuse also added, “We had actually already written a good chunk of season 3 before we even started filming season 2. It was actually a really weird thing that I've never experienced in my career, to have written a full season of television that hadn't been made, and we had to go on to writing the next season of television. It gave us a lot of opportunities to recalibrate certain things, as we were going along”.
