The spectacular journey of Locke & Key spectators came to an end with season three’s epic conclusion. In the series, following their father’s murder, three siblings move into a house packed with reality-bending keys; from Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s comics.
The show received positive feedback from the audience. There’s a lot of adventure and a splendid cast that keeps the show going and growing. Critics also mainly praised the series dealing with loss and trauma concepts, as well as its utilization of horror genre components.
As we all know, the show has officially concluded. However, it appears that people are still puzzled as to why the show was canceled after three seasons. It’s time to look into it.
The Reason Behind The Ending Of Locke & Key
The ending was planned, according to the showrunner and the series’ production team. Three seasons was the perfect duration for them to carry the Locke family’s story to a satisfying conclusion. The series’ viewership was actually incredible too.
Showrunners Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill explained, “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.” After watching the conclusion, it was pretty satisfying.
The Show ‘Had’ Many Stories Left To Tell
It was earlier noted that the show has many stories to tell and that it is up to Netflix. Last year, Cuse and Averill also mentioned their plans for another season.
“I think that’s a question for Netflix. We’d love to do many, many seasons of the show. We love the show. The show has many stories left to tell, so I think that’s really a question for them.” But then there was the talk about the satisfying conclusion later.
Rodriguez stated about a spin-off series, “One of the things that the TV creators did, especially in the season finale, found their own way to do the same things we did in the comic, but in a completely different form.
In addition to giving it a new life, it gives the people that read the comic new surprises. The other thing it did was introduce the two hottest paramedics ever seen on screen. People are crying out loud for them to get their own spin-off series!”
But that is unlikely to happen anytime soon. The showrunner may have also changed his mind about wrapping up the series with three seasons. Netflix is known for canceling shows at some point, but the conclusion sums up for the audience.
And the story could have gone on for much longer, but the end was increasingly likely. What are your thoughts on the series conclusion? And would you like to see Locke & Key spin-off shows? You’re welcome to share your opinions on the ending in the comment section below.
