Will there be a Lockwood and Co Season 2? Netflix has a knack for canceling shows in their prime, but will there be a second season?

Supernatural show Lockwood & Co. dropped on Netflix earlier this year, to pretty well reception. Based on the books by Johnathan Stroud and made by the same people who did 2011’s Attack the Block, this new series draws back to the supernatural YA craze of early 2010s TV.

If you’ve never heard of the show before, and you want the quick rundown, the official Netflix synopsis reads: “In a world plagued by ghosts, three teens band together as paranormal investigators, risking what little they have to unravel a diabolical conspiracy.”

Now, the story of the series hasn’t quite been wrapped up yet, and the show has been a point of excitement for many a viewer, which begs the question: is there going to be a Season 2?

Will Lockwood and Co. have a Season 2?

As of writing, Lockwood & Co. has been cancelled by Netflix, meaning that there will not be a Season 2.

It seems that we are in an age where Netflix shows are being canceled left and right, so no one’s favorite show can feel safe, and sadly this fate has befallen Lockwood and Co.

The show was cancelled this weekend, and the writer of the book series even posted about it, explaining the whole situation:

A lot of fans are upset about it on Twitter, criticising Netflix’ current model of cutting new shows quickly.

What would have happened in Lockwood & Co. Season 2?

Now, the first season covers the first two books in the five-book Johnathan Stroud series of the same name. Meaning that there are three more books to cover. This makes the series’ cancellation even sadder, as we know what could have been for future seasons.

Also, when we asked the cast and director of the show, Joe Cornish, if they were hoping for a second season, the answer was a definitive yes: “They’d be nothing we’d like more than to do more.”

And when asked what plans they had for a sadly no longer potential future season, this is what he had to say: “We’d continue with the books. Yeah, we’d love to do more, the books get better and better, the characters get more and more interesting, the situations get more complex and exciting.”

Though Cornish did make sure to add, “But we’re also very very happy with what we’ve done, and we’re very excited for people to see it, and then hopefully get into it.”
