Maybe the fourth (or fifth…or sixth…) time’s a charm for Joe Hill’s Locke & Key. The author’s acclaimed fantasy-horror graphic novel series has come absurdly close to making the leap from page to screen on more than one occasion, but that was back before streaming services began producing their own original content, giving a home to riskier, more ambitious projects — stuff like, say, Locke & Key, which is once again in development as a TV series, this time at Hulu with Carlton Cuse (LOST) serving as showrunner and producing alongside Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange), who will also direct several episodes of the first season.

Award-winning IDW comic Locke & Key came thiiiissss close to a TV adaptation, going so far as to shoot a FOX pilot that screened at Comic-Con 2011, before the project ended up shelved. Now, IDW will attempt to adapt the series once again, setting author and creator Joe Hill to write a new pilot and serve as executive producer.
