Netflix has unveiled the first look teaser trailer for a new series arriving in January 2023 titled Lockwood & Co., made by the acclaimed UK filmmaker Joe Cornish (director of Attack the Block and The Kid Who Would Be King). This is based on a book series that involves a ghost-hunters group called Lockwood & Co. – a small agency in London that runs independent of any adult supervision. A tiny startup, run by two teenage boys and a newly arrived, supremely psychically gifted girl, a renegade trio destined to unravel a mystery that will change the course of history. This is only the first of many books in this series, so if this does well expect to see more of these ghost hunters. This stars Ruby Stokes as Lucy Carlyle, Cameron Chapman as Anthony Lockwood, Ali Hadji-Heshmati as George Karim, plus Ivanno Jeremiah, Jack Bandeira, Morven Christie, Rhianna Dorris, and Paddy Holland. This pretty much seems like Ghostbusters + Harry Potter. The teaser is only a 90 sec clip but the ghost looks freaky. What’s up with his magical sword?
Here’s the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Netflix’s series Lockwood & Co., direct from YouTube:
