Locke and Key season 3
With season two being a success last year, Netflix is all set out for the third season of this fantasy horror. Carlton Cuse, in an interview, talked about how they had started writing a good chunk of season 3 even before the season 2 production and filming started. In the second season, we saw the Locke family finally defeat the demon, the third season is said to be more focused on the family and their bond. It is predicted that the third season is due to arrive sometime later in the year around May-June. However, we will know for sure once Netflix drops the trailer.
Locke and Key follows the story of the Locke family who moves into their father’s ancestral home after his untimely demise. When they start finding keys that open gates to magical beings and places, they accidentally end up summoning a demon. The horror-fantasy follows their adventure as they try to defeat the demon that wants the keys, all the while fighting to stay together through the tough times.
Stranger things season 4
One of the most famous and best Netflix Shows, Stranger Things season 4 was cancelled back in 2020 because of the onset of the pandemic. The show is set out to be released in two instalments this year, with it being twice the length of the earlier season. Volume one of the 4th seasons is set to be released on May 27th and volume 2 after 5 weeks on July 1st.

Stranger Things follows the story of the town of Indiana, a close-knit community where everyone knows everyone. However, when a kid goes missing, his friends decide that they are going to find him, unlocking the supernatural mysteries that lurk beneath the quiet town.
