Lockwood and Co. Cancelled at Netflix
The adaptation starring Jonathan Stroud has been canceled by Netflix after just one season. On January 27, all eight episodes came out.
“With heavy hearts, we announce that Lockwood & Co. will not be returning for a second [season],” production company Complete Fiction said in a statement to Variety. “Making this show was one of the most rewarding experiences of our careers and we will forever treasure it. Being trusted by the supremely talented Jonathan Stroud to adapt his outstanding series of books was an honour and a privilege. Working with him as closely as we did across the development, production and release of Lockwood & Co. has made him a friend, and part of the Complete Fiction family, for life.”
The supernatural detective thriller took place “in a world plagued by ghosts, where giant corporations employ psychic teens to battle the supernatural,” according to the official logline. Newcomer Cameron Chapman played the titular Anthony Lockwood, “a rebellious young entrepreneur haunted by his mysterious past,” while Bad Education‘s Ali Hadji-Heshmati co-starred as his brilliant but eccentric sidekick George Karim. Rounding out the renegade trio was Bridgerton‘s Ruby Stokes as the “supremely gifted” Lucy Carlyle.
