Following in the footsteps of Netflix’s recent hit teen shows, such as Wednesday and Heartstopper, the streamer's latest YA series, Lockwood & Co, has landed and dethroned Ginny & Georgia season 2 from its No. 1 spot on the Netflix Top 10.


Adapted from novels by Jonathan Stroud and coming to our screens courtesy of Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish, the series follows a trio of ghost-hunters at London's newest ghost-busting agency, Lockwood and Co, portrayed by Ruby Stokes, Cameron Chapman and Ali Hadji-Heshmati.

A trailer for Lockwood & Co previously gave fans their first look at the cast and their ghost-busting missions, promising action, swords and drama aplenty.

Fans who've already binged the series on Netflix will be thrilled to hear that further seasons could well be on the cards, with Cornish recently told that "there's definitely two more seasons we'd love to make out of the remaining books".

But in the meantime, read on for everything you need to know about Lockwood & Co.
