Locke & Key is finally making its way to televisions, provided they are Hulu-equipped. The streaming service has ordered a pilot for the TV adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, according to a report from Deadline. Hill himself will write the pilot, while LOST alum Carlton Cuse will serve as showrunner (so don’t expect any payoff in the finale – yes we’re still butthurt about LOST). Scott Derrickson will direct, as Derrickson himself proudly told Twitter:

This isn’t the first time an attempt was made at bringing Locke & Key to television, but it’s a much different landscape today than it was back in 2011. Locke & Key has also been in development as a movie trilogy at Universal, and it’s unknown how this new deal could affect that, if at all. We’ll keep you updated.
