Will there be a season 2 of Lockwood & Co?
Netflix has not yet confirmed if there will be a second season of Lockwood & Co, however, series star, Ruby Stokes, told Cosmopolitan UK: “I’d love to see it go again. That’s what I hoped for. I’d love to see Lucy’s character evolve, and see where Lockwood and Co goes.. Who else might come to the agency or leave the agency in turn?”
There are three more books and a novella in the series, so there is certainly scope for the show to be renewed. If Netflix does give season two the greenlight, you can expect to arrive about 18 months later based on how long it took to make season one.
