Netflix is adapting the YA book series Lockwood & Co. by Jonathan Stroud into a television series and Bridgerton star Ruby Stokes is leading the cast!

We first learned of the Lockwood & Co. TV adaptation back in May 2020 when it was announced that Netflix and the Complete Fiction production company would be working together to create a show based on the Lockwood & Co.’s book series. Joe Cornish had signed on as the lead writer, lead director, and an executive producer of the series. Then, in December 2020, Netflix officially gave the show a series order.

Kara Smith, Ed Hime, and Joy Wilkinson are also credited as writers for the series. Although Cornish is the director, William McGregor has also directed some episodes. Besides Cornish, Nira Park and Rachael Prior also serve as executive producers.
