Although filming wrapped last fall, Carlton Cuse and Meredith Averill are still excited to talk about Locke & Key, reflecting their satisfaction with the series’ outcome. At the same time, both said they will miss the creative fulfillment and close relationships they’ve built during production of the series.
“It’s bittersweet because I loved living in this world and that’s the end of our story,” Averill summarized. “But I’m immensely proud of everything we’ve done… I have no regrets and I look forward to whatever comes next, but I feel like I’m immensely proud of everything we’ve accomplished [and] also that we had the support of [‘Locke & Key’ comic writer and illustrator, respectively,] Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez through it all. We’ve been able to do our own version of it, but their support feels like the highest compliment we could have been given.”
Cuse agreed, noting, “I’m sad it’s over because every time you do a show you’re building a world on screen, but then you’re also building a world behind the scenes, and this was it a really special one… That’s the part that’s hard. I’m very pleased with the arc of the show that Meredith and I have constructed and that we have this 28 episode story that goes from start to finish.
Cuse added that he hopes new viewers will continue to find the show in the future. “I really hope that the people who saw it will enjoy the ending, [and] I really hope there’s a whole other group of people who say, ‘Yeah, I think I’m going to check that out and start,'” Cuse shared. “It’s quite addictive and ends up being a very rewarding watch.”
All three seasons of Locke & Key are available on Netflix.
