For Locke & Key lovers who are stuck for something to watch after this season, Netflix has some excellent options, like October Faction and Ragnarok.
A long time in the making, Netflix was able to turn Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’sLocke & Key comic series from IDW to live action.
Relocating from their old home to a new one, the Locke family finds themselves caught into a mystery that dates back to their late father’s boyhood at the Key House.
As the episode was so fast-paced, it’s possible that viewers completed it soon and are now looking for something else to watch. After watching the first season of Locke & Key, we’ve rounded up a few other Netflix Originals that we think you’ll appreciate.
Scoot Allan has the following to say about the 10th of April, 2020:
To tide fans over until the Lockes return home to the keys of Key House in season two of Netflix’s Locke & Key, we took another look at some other Netflix programs worth checking out.
However, The Order is a Netflix Original Series that follows a conventional supernatural concept as young Jack Morton enrolls in a mystical secret society with revenge-fueled ulterior purposes.
Even while the conflict between witches and werewolves is still very intense, there is an unexpected element of undergraduate humor. It, if you haven’t seen the first season of “The Order” yet, now is the best time to do so because a second season is coming shortly.
2. THE STRANGER
An adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel The Stranger, while not as family-friendly as the last film, similarly includes a family grappling with the mysteries of the past in an exciting and frightening ride of deception.
As more and more people are drawn into the Stranger’s web, Richard Armitage’s character’s life is rocked to the core by the revelations of a mysterious stranger (Hannah John-Kamen).
It’s a French spooky show
Two friends investigate the murder of one of their own in the short but entertaining film Mortel, which follows them as they strike a dark pact with a voodoospirit to receive powers that will allow them to probe the death of their comrade.
In a usually overcrowded genre, the show is an odd but enjoyable blend of teen drama and supernaturalfantasy. The first season has six episodes, so it’s a quick binge, but no word yet on a second season.
4. THE SOCIETY
When a high school class returns on a field trip to an isolated town, they discover that it is completely sealed off from the rest of the world by a thick, impenetrable forest.
The teenagers are forced to grow up quickly and function as a society in order to survive, but they are also obliged to examine the mystery circumstances and odd happenings in the tranquil town in which they live. Netflix has announced that a second season of the show would premiere sometime in 2020.
5. THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
Shirley Jackson’s classic novel The Haunting of Hill House was loosely adapted by Mike Flanagan for the big screen, and audiences were delighted by a time-spanning tale that featured a fantastic cast and a ghost-infested mansion that explores a family’s struggle to deal with the haunting effect of growing up in their former home.
The next season of the series
Not only will you not want to miss out on the first season of The Haunting of Bly Manor, but the Crain family will have you gripped to your seat along with them.
6. CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA
Locke & Key’s decision to lighten up some of the harsher aspects of the comic series has been criticized by some and appreciated by others, but for those who want to explore the balance between light and dark, you might want to check out theChilling Adventures of Sabrina.
It’s a show that follows a young half-witch as she tries to balance her demonic faith with the growing stresses of high school while trying to find her place in the dark prophecies of Hell.
7. LOST IN SPACE
This family’s struggle to come to terms with the death of their father and the aftermath of a tragic tragedy that might not have been an accident is what makes Locke & Key so compelling.
After losing their home planet, the Robinson family finds itself in the middle of an intergalactic adventure in Netflix’s Lost in Space series. With its futuristic twists and family dynamics, Lost in Space takes a look at what it takes to keep families together, especially when they’re under stress.
8. OCTOBER FACTION
For example, the newly released October Fashion was adapted from a comic by Steve Niles and Damien Worm that has some similarities to Locke & Key, which Netflix has also been adapting.
It follows the Allen family, a husband and wife supernatural monster-hunting duo, as they come home to their hometown with their teenage twins, while having to hide their vocation from their neighbors. Apocalyptic monsters plague the village, forcing the family to find a way to stay together by slaying them all together.
Locke & Key had a rough start when the pilot wasn’t picked up and the series remained in production limbo for a while, as we previously discussed.
Before Netflix recreated the Mortal Instruments novel series into a series calledShadowhunters, the film adaptation was unsuccessful.
However, Shadowhunters follows the story of Clary Fray, a teenage girl who discovers that she is descended from an ancient line of human/angel hybrids who have been tasked with battling demons and other nightmarish creatures.
A child’s disappearance in a tiny village sparks off a multi-generational narrative filled of secrets and mysteries that are all pulled together by a strange wormhole found in the caves beneath the town in Netflix’s first German-language series, Dark.
It’s a twisted time-travel narrative that tackles the secrets we hold from ourselves and the ones we love most in our lives as the cave’s enchantment winds across the years.
11. A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS
Neil Patrick Harris starred as Count Olaf, the wicked disguise master, in Netflix’s adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events, a book series written by Lemon Snicket and starring Neil Patrick Harris as the villainous master of disguise, Count Olaf.
It’s a popular children’s series, but there are some dark undertones, since Count Olaf is regularly attempting to murder children in the course of the novel. In spite of this, the series digs into the different terrible events with glee, making it a fun, if at times challenging, viewing for the whole family.
It was 2020 when Netflix released Ragnarok, a modern-day Norwegian series based on Norse mythology. Magne, a teenage boy who returns to Edda with his family after a long absence, discovers that the town is being contaminated by one of Norway’s wealthiest families, who are revealed to be ancient Jotunn ice giants.
It quickly becomes clear to Magne that he is the physical manifestation of the god Thor, and he and the town’s people, who may have their own legendary ties to the Asgardian realm, find themselves in the middle of a battle.
13. RAISING DION
However, Locke & Key is anchored in its exploration of the grief-stricken family that lost their husband and father in the show’s first season.
Raising Dion, a Netflix series that follows the life of Nicole Reese as a single mother following the death of her husband, covers similar themes.
It is found that Dion is developing powers, and his mother and her deceased husband’s best friend strive to keep his powers under wraps as they investigate the origins of his powers and the secrets left behind in the wake of his death.
14. STRANGER THINGS
Netflix blockbuster Stranger Things, which has published three seasons since 2016 with a fourth on the horizon, is likely to be familiar to anyone who enjoys shows like Locke and Key or any of the other series we’ve examined thus far.
There are several similarities between Locke & Key and other stories about children and adults and their ability to believe and understand different things.
After Locke & Key fans have finished the first season of Stranger Things, they will be able to explore a new messed-up town in the second.
15. THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY
Originally, The Umbrella Academy was a comic book series published by Dark Horse Comics before Netflix aired the first season of the live-action version on its streaming service. It’s a unique, dark, happy, twisted look at the world of comic book superheroes that has gained a devoted following and earned the show a second season.
For many years, the Hargreeve children were a secretive super-team commanded by their father, whose unexpected death reunites the adult heroes just in time to save the world from disaster. For lovers of unconventional comic book adaptations like Locke & Key, The Umbrella Academy will be a hit.
