Part of a new Netflix series, Locke & Key, set to be released later this year, will be filmed over three days in Lunenburg around the dates of March 11-15.

The comic series is based on a set of graphic novels featuring three siblings who move into their ancestral estate after their father's gruesome murder, and discover their new home's magical keys. The keys must be used in their stand against an evil creature who wants both the keys and their powers.

Netflix picked up the series in July 2018, after the streaming company, Hulu dropped the pilot, part of which was also filmed in Lunenburg in 2017. The streaming film and television company has ordered 10 episodes for the hour-long series for the first season, according to Variety.

According the the website, IMDb and the publication Variety, some of the cast members include Australian actor Felix Mallard, Thomas Barnet, Laysia de Oliveira and Kevin Alve.

Deadline.com reports that Michael Morris will direct the first two episodes. Morris has directed, among other things, episodes of Better Call Saul, House of Cards, Shameless, and Bloodline.
