It was first reported earlier this year that the horror comic Locke & Key might be picked up by Netflix for an original series. This has now been officially confirmed by the online video streaming behemoth. Netflix has been developing an original series based on the popular horror comic series Locke & Key.

It was initially reported that Netflix had taken an interest in the project after Hulu decided to pass on a pilot that it had ordered. The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed that Netflix has picked up the show for its first season which will have 10 episodes.

The comic series has been created by horror author Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez. The story is based on the Locke family and the events that transpire after they relocate to their ancestral home in Lovecraft, Maine, following the murder of the head of the family.

Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, the three children, discover many magical keys in the house that give special powers to whoever holds them. At the same time, powerful, sinister forces are trying to get a hold of the keys as well to bring an evil presence on the world.

Netflix’s version of the series is reportedly a redevelopment of the Hulu pilot. Carlton Cuse is the showrunner who will be joined by Meredith Averill as the co-showrunner.
