Watch The Full Trailer For New Netflix Series Locke And Key
The forthcoming show comes from the folk behind The Haunting of Hill House, and is a TV adaptation of the best-selling comic book series by Joe Hill (who just so happens to be Stephen King's son) and Gabriel Rodriguez for IDW comics.
Judging from the trailer, it looks like it could be a hit with both fans of the comic series and newcomers to the franchise.
One Facebooker commented: "I just reread the comic books, still awesome as ever. I hope they give it justice. I can't wait for this."
Another said: "I absolutely loved the comic books! The kid playing Bode seems like a great casting choice. Still unsure about the rest of the family but it looks promising!"
A third said: "Wow, never thought I'd see this made into a TV show. I hope this is as amazing as the comic series."
Following a family in the wake of their father's mysterious death, the series is all about unlocking secrets - literally, thanks to a set of 'magical keys'.

The show's synopsis reads: "After their father is murdered under mysterious circumstances, the three Locke siblings and their mother move into their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which they discover is full of magical keys that may be connected to their father's death.
"As the Locke children explore the different keys and their unique powers, a mysterious demon awakens - and will stop at nothing to steal them.
"From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Meredith Averill (The Haunting of Hill House), the series is a coming-of-age mystery about love, loss, and the unshakable bonds that define family."
It stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) as Nina Locke, Jackson Robert Scott (IT and IT 2) as Bode Locke, Connor Jessup (American Crime) as Tyler Locke, Emilia Jones (Horrible Histories) as Kinsey Locke, Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) as Rendell Locke, Laysla De Oliveira as Dodge, Thomas Mitchell Barnet as Sam Lesser, Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Gabe and Coby Bird as Rufus Whedon.
Originally, Hulu had ordered a pilot based on the original comic series, but in 2018 it passed on the show, meaning it was passed out to other networks.
This is where Netflix cleverly swooped in, ordering a re-developed version.
Locke & Key is released on Netflix on 7 February 2020.
