Ready for your next Netflix supernatural obsession? The long-awaited adaptation of Jonathan Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series is about to hit the service this weekend. Lockwood & Co. is set in an alternate version of London overrun by ghosts, where the city’s only hope is found in various agencies staffed by youths with the ability to see these specters and fight them off. Because folks lose the ability to see ghosts when they hit their 20s, ghost-hunting is an occupation for the youth. Lockwood & Co. follows three scrappy teens — Lucy Carlyle (Ruby Stokes), Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman), and George Karim (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) — who are trying to fight the good fight out of their indie operation.
Even though the books Lockwood & Co. is based on have a huge fanbase, the Netflix show has been flying under the proverbial radar. What’s wild about that is Lockwood & Co. marks Joe Cornish‘s long-awaited return to the YA fantasy/sci-fi genre. Cornish is the mastermind behind cult hits Attack the Block (which launched a then-unknown London actor named John Boyega) and The Kid Who Would Be King. Cornish has a unique ability to merge realistic portraits of youth with sensational supernatural quests.
