Lockwood and Co season 2 release date speculation, cast, and more news

Lockwood and Co is the newest Netflix series from Joe Cornish. Here's everything we know about a potential Lockwood and Co season 2 release date and more.

Lockwood and CO season 2 release date

When is the Lockwood and co season 2 release date? Based on the books by Jonathan Stroud, Lockwood and Co is the newest TV show from the streaming giant Netflix.

Created by Joe Cornish, Lockwood and Co is set in an alternate London where the dead walk the streets and phantoms menace the nights. Thankfully there are teams of dedicated ghost hunters, like our heroes Lucy Carlyle, George Karim, and Anthony Lockwood, who keep the public safe from things that go bump in the night.

Part horror series, part teen adventure, the TV series is an awful lot of fun with just enough scares along the way to keep even the biggest of kids entertained. Of course, in 2023, though, we always want more, so the question is, will the Netflix series get a second season? Well, here’s everything we know about the Lockwood and Co season 2 release date.

Lockwood and Co season 2 release date speculation

On May 12, 2023, it was announced that Lockwood and Co season 2 wasn’t happening and that Netflix was canceling the series. 

This is despite Lockwood and Co being watched an impressive 79.91 million hours between January and February across the world. We were feeling optimistic about the show’s renewal, but here we are.

Author Jonathan Stroud, the author of the book series, took to Twitter to announce the cancellation and share his disappointment. This is really gutting, as Joe Cornish and the actors were all fantastic at adapting Stroud’s novels, and they all deserved better.

That said, although the series has lost its place on Netflix, it’s not to say that the show may not get picked up on another streaming service. Considering how popular the series proved to be, it’s a possibility.

Lockwood and Co season 2 cast

As far as we know, the Lockwood and Co cast from season 1 were all ready and waiting to reprise their roles in season 2. That means Ruby Stokes, Cameron Chapman, and Ali Hadji-Heshmati wanted to return to ghost hunting as soon as possible, but with its cancellation, that’s no longer happening.

The Lockwood and Co season 2 cast list would have included:

  • Ruby Stokes as Lucy Carlyle
  • Cameron Chapman as Anthony Lockwood
  • Ali Hadji-Heshmati as George Karim
  • Michael Clarke as Skull
  • Ivanno Jeremiah as Inspector Barnes
  • Luke Treadaway as The Golden Blade
  • Morven Christie as Penelope Fittes
  • Jack Bandeira as Quill Kipps
  • Ben Crompton as Julius Winkman
  • Hayley Konadu as Flo Bone

Should the series end up being saved by another distributor, we would hope to see the above cast return to reprise their roles.

Lockwood and Co season 2 plot

We were desperate to find out what was behind Lockwood’s secret door, so we were hoping Lockwood and Co season 2 would quickly resolve that cliffhanger. There are loads of places Cornish could have taken the series, making us hope even more that the series will find a home elsewhere.

First of all, there were the Golden Blade’s words about Lockwood’s parents as well as his connection to Penelope Fittes. Then there was George’s quest to find out how ‘The Problem’ actually began.

Unless news of another distributor is announced, Netflix viewers will now have to turn to the books to find out what happens next. The first season adapted the first two books in Stroud’s series and The Screaming Staircase and The Whispering Skull. To find out what happens next, turn to the next two books, The Hollow Boy and The Creeping Shadow.

These books cover Lockwood, Lucy, and George’s battles with a carnival of assassins and their toughest case yet, finding the source of the Brixton Cannibal.

How many episodes of Lockwood and Co are there?

There were eight episodes in the first season of Lockwood and Co. If a second season had come to life, we assume it would have followed suit with the episode count.
