Netflix has not even aired Locke and Key season 2 just yet but as of May 3rd, 2021 filming has started on Locke and Key season 3 in Toronto, Canada.

The Netflix version of the comic series by Joe Hill took audiences by storm when season 1 was published in February 2020. It had been provided a swift season two sequence but because of the pandemic, its production did not get off the floor fast. However, once things did get moving, Netflix was convinced in season 2 it allowed the series a third year and a general deal to Meredith Averill.

We have known some time that filming for season 3 would begin at some point in 2021 but now, we’ve got confirmation that filming has begun as of May 3rd, 2021.

We’ve been told that creation is supposed to be ongoing up till September 30th, 2021 with post-production then set to finish by the end of the year.

Guy Ferland is recorded to direct at some stage in Locke & Key season 3 which will be his first on the show but having lots of experience in the film and television with credits including The Walking Dead, Bang Bang You’re Dead, and S.W.A.T.

That means when you tie it all up a 2022 launch date for Locke & Key period 3 is a dead certainty. We have also got our fingers crossed we might see the comic crossover of Locke & Key and The Sandman (The Sandman also being a Netflix job in the form of the upcoming series) arrive at our displays too although we have heard nothing to indicate that.

Thanks to the eagle eyes over at Toronto Filming on Twitter, we could receive confirmation that filming had begun and it resembles the shoot has begun at Lakefront Promenade.

Locke and Key season 3 is currently filming alongside a bunch of other Netflix names in Toronto at this time. 13: The Musical, 12 Following Midnight, Ivy, Luckiest Girl Alive, Slumberland, and wedding are all currently continuing in the region.

We’ll have a full preview up for Locke & Key season 3 as and once we learn a little more but for now, let us know in the comments if you are pumped for season 2 of Locke & Key.
