The streaming giant has yet to announce the release date for the upcoming season. However, everything is already set for the third installment which will start filming in January at the show's usual set in Toronto, Canada.
In a statement published by The Hollywood Reporter, Brian Wright, VP overall deals for Netflix, expressed his excitement to renew "Locke & Key" for season 3 with co-showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill.
"Carlton and Meredith have built an incredible world in 'Locke & Key,' and we're excited to have the Lockes return for more in the third season," he said.
Moreover, Netflix inked an overall deal with Averill for her to cover TV and other projects with the streamer.
"I'm delighted to expand our creative partnership with Meredith Averill, a talented creator with a keen eye for best-in-class horror and supernatural storytelling," Wright added.
"I'm incredibly grateful to have found a home at Netflix where I feel constantly supported, challenged, and inspired. I look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship," Averill responded.
Cuse teased that fans are in for a treat with "Locke & Key" season 3. There are "some incredible adventures in store for the Locke family in season 3," adding that he "could not be more excited to continue telling our story with our great partners at Netflix."
