The plot of Lockwood & Co
In the middle of London’s haunting pandemic, three juvenile ghost hunters are the focus of Lockwood & Co. The group consists of two talented males and a girl with “amazing psychic talents” (like Eleven from Stranger Things). Young psychic Lucy Carlyle (Ruby Stokes) teams up with Anthony Lockwood (Cameron Chapman) and George Cubbins (Ali Hadji-Heshmati) at their fledgling business, Lockwood & Co. The no-adults company is with maintaining London’s streets’ safety while engaging in nightly battles with malevolent zombie spirits.
Netflix published a brief teaser for the upcoming Lockwood & Co on their official YouTube account on October 26, 2022, even though there isn’t a full-length trailer yet. A ferocious, screeching spirit is what Lucy Carlyle and Anthony Lockwood are battling in the teaser. Lockwood attempts to defeat the beast with some remarkable combat skills. Still, the angered entity causes Lucy to tumble over a stair railing and clings on precariously above a steep plunge. Lockwood returns and grabs Lucy’s hand to bring her to safety just before she is about to slip and take a nasty fall. The teaser’s final few seconds provide a brief but intriguing piece of show lore: Lockwood inquires of Lucy if the ghost touched her, and she responds, “Of course not! If it had, she would be dead.”
