Producer Says the Locke & Key Series May Have a Different Ending
The long-gestating Locke & Key series will finally make it to the screen in just a couple of weeks. But the long-time fans of the supernatural horror-fantasy comic book franchise co-created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez may have some surprises regarding the adaptation on screen, especially about the ending. In a recent interview with Gamespot, Locke & Key executive producer Carlton Cuse (Lost) was asked if they might change the horror comic’s finale to better fit it for the demands of Netflix’s viewers.
“We’ve spent a lot of time talking with Joe [Hill], and I think, in concert with Joe, we’ll figure out the answer to that question,” Cuse said. “I mean, it is a cool ending, but again, the show’s diverging from the comics and it becomes something [else]. We want to be sure that the ending works for the TV series and we’re not just forcing ourselves into an ending for endings’ sake. We want the ending to be something that really feels like it’s the right conclusion for our story.”
Even though the first season of the series has yet to air, the executive producers are pretty excited about this project. They believe so much in it that they are already working on a follow-up season.
“We’re writing Season 2, even though it hasn’t been greenlit,” he added. “We’re working in a room.”
In spite of the fact that adapting the content to the medium is normal, executive producers should always try to find the right balance between innovation and original content. The risk of alienating fans is always high in cases like this.
Locke & Key will be available on Netflix starting February 7. What do you think about possibly changing the Locke & Key ending? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
