Is Connor Jessup Leaving ‘Locke & Key?’ All You Need to Know
Are the talks true? Find out everything!
Fans of the Netflix Fantasy/Drama show Locke & Key have been eager to know if actor Connor Jessup will be reprising his role in the third season. And, if not, will it mark the end of his character Tyler Locke?
In the season two finale, we saw that Tyler heads up to Boston for further studies. In addition, it was established that he would turn 18 soon, resulting in him losing the ability to remember the magic and the magical keys.
This has led fans to wonder if Tyler’s character arc has ended. So, is Connor Jessup leaving Locke & Key? But, before going into that, let’s rewind, in brief, what has happened to the character of Tyler Locke in the first two seasons of the Netflix show.
Tyler Locke’s journey in ‘Locke & Key’
In the first season, the viewers saw Tyler and his family – his mother, younger sister, and younger brother – move out from Seattle to their family house in Matheson, Massachusetts. They did so after Tyler’s father was killed.
In their family house, the three siblings start to find magical keys capable of doing wonders. As for Tyler, he initially finds himself reluctant to use magic and is the wariest. But, his younger siblings seem to be quite fascinated and use the keys freely.
Fast forward to season two, Tyler’s views on using magical keys start to change. Speaking with Decider, actor Connor Jessup said, “In Season 2, he’s had a total about-face. He’s now on board. He’s using these keys for fun. He is a believer.”
As the story moves out in season two, Tyler learns that his girlfriend Jackie – played by Genevieve Kang – is turning 18. And as said earlier, when a person turns 18, they will not remember anything related to magic unless they use a Memory Key.
He ultimately finds the Memory Key; however, Jackie refuses to use it. But, despite her refusal, he insists on using the key. “She thinks it’s okay to move on, that that’s part of growing up, and he just doesn’t get that,” Jessup says about it.
The showrunners of Netflix’s Locke & Key also deemed this storyline perfect for the character of Tyler, as Tyler himself is about to turn 18.
“What are the consequences of growing up? And Tyler is the character most poised for that story to play out in a poignant way because he’s just about to turn 18. His girlfriend is about to turn 18. The magic is something that is only experienced by kids,” said co-showrunner Carlton Cuse.
Cuse continued, “It was something that organically was just right there for us. And we love Connor as an actor, and we wanted to really give him, we really wanted to explore some of those thematics through his character and his relationships.”
Coming back to Tyler’s storyline in season two, things get very dark when Jackie gets infected by the Demon Key. It led a parasitic entity/demon to attach itself to Jackie’s spine and make her loyal to the show’s Season 2 antagonist, Gabe – played by Griffin Gluck.
In the hope of saving her, Tyler forges the Alpha Key. However, when he used that key on Jackie, it only worked to some extent. The point was when the demon takes over a host; it kills the host. And when the demon gets removed, the hosts get freed for a while before they ultimately die.
The same thing happened with Jackie when Tyler used the Alpha Key on her — she died — which shatters Tyler. Reflecting on that death, Jessup said, “He loses her, and he has this enormous wound and this enormous pain that enters his life, which in a way is similar to the pain of losing his dad.”

“It’s like it’s a new wound, but it’s also a reopening of an older, emotional wound, and… At that moment, he can’t live with that, and that he can’t bear the thought of that weighing on him forever,” Jessup added.
In the season finale of Locke & Key season two, Tyler and his siblings finally beat Gabe, after which Tyler hands over all of the magical keys he had on himself to his sister Kinsey – played by Emilia Jones – and heads over to Boston.
At the ending moment, Tyler’s younger brother Bode, played by Jackson Robert Scott, points out that he will soon be turning 18, and by the time he returns, he will have already forgotten magic.
Will Connor Jessup’s Tyler Locke return in ‘Locke & Key’ season 3?
Although some fans might believe that the storyline of Jessup’s Tyler might have ended after the season two finale, there is still more of Tyler to see in the upcoming third season of Locke & Key.
In the above-mentioned interview with Decider, Jessup said, “He frames it to himself in terms of growing up and in terms of letting things go. Whether that’s true or not, that’s the question for the next season, but I think that’s what he tells himself.”
He then confirmed his appearance as Tyler in season 3. He said, “I don’t think when he leaves at the end of Season 2 that his story is over. To me, it felt like a new chapter, but it didn’t feel like a resolution. So, there’s still more for Tyler.”
Additionally, fans must be excited to learn that Locke & Key season three’s filming already ended in September 2021. Jessup had shared the news via his Instagram handle with a lengthy caption. Actress Emilia Jones, who plays Tyler’s sister Kinsey, also announced the news.
That ensures that Jessup filmed for Locke & Key season 3. Furthermore, Netflix or the showrunners haven’t announced the departure of Jessup. So, it’s safe to assume that Jessup will return as Tyler. As of now, there have been no updates on the trailer.
‘Locke & Key’ season 3 will mark the end of the show
However, on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, the official Instagram handle of Locke & Key shared some pictures as the first look at the new season. It also revealed that the third season would release later this year.
And fans must be happy to know that Jessup’s Tyler is also a part of these pictures. So, it has been official that Jessup is a part of the show. However, fans of the show must be sad to hear that the show is concluding after the third season.

In the last picture of the same Instagram post, Locke & Key’s showrunners and executive producers Carlton Cure and Meredith Averill wrote, “Once we began working on the series, we felt three seasons was the ideal length to bring the story of the Locke family….”
“…and their Keyhouse adventures to a satisfying conclusion. As storytellers, we are grateful that we had the opportunity to tell our vision of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s incredible story exactly the way we wanted.”
“We’re keeping the magical keys, though, for our own personal use,” the statement concluded.
Alabama Barker Says She Is Dropping Her Makeup Line in 2023
All about Alabama Barker’s upcoming make-up line.
Alabama Barker, an internet personality, is set to launch her own makeup line this year.
Life and Style Magazine reported in December 2021 that Barker was launching a makeup line.
The report came after a fan commented on one of her TikTok videos, “If you made a makeup line, I would literally buy every product double,” to which Barker replied, “I am, babe,” with several cute emojis.
Barker recently revealed the launch date for her makeup line. On March 22, 2023, the internet personality posted the story to ask her question.
Following the story, many of her fans bombarded her with questions, one of which was, “When are you dropping the makeup line because I’m ready?”
“Very soon!!” said Barker in response to the question. “Coming this year.” Later, the official page of TikTok Insider Info posted the screenshot of Barker’s story and captioned, “#alabamabarker to release a makeup line at some point this year!”
Many of Barker’s fans were overjoyed to hear the news. “I’m actually excited, I can’t lie,” one person said, while another wrote, “Slay, I can’t wait.”
Unfortunately, the internet personality did not reveal details about her line’s release. However, she is surrounded by plenty of businesswomen who can help her. After all, her father, Travis, is married to Kourtney Kardashian.
Barker’s stepmother Kourtney founded Poosh.com, and her sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian, both own major beauty brands.
Jenner recently added a new product to her beauty line. On March 22, 2023, the 25-year-old entrepreneur launched a mascara line under her Kylash brand. Her volume mascara is designed to give full, lifted, defined lashes that feel weightless. The mascara line has been in development for more than a year. She registered the Kylash trademark in April 2022.
Moreover, according to a TMZ report, Jenner is working on cosmetic preparations, extension fibers, eyelash serums, tints, and eye makeup remover for her line.
Barker might have drawn inspiration from her stepmother’s sister’s success in the cosmetics industry. She also unquestionably received immense support and guidance from the Kardashians.
Alabama Barker’s net worth in 2023
Barker is estimated to have a net worth of $1 million. However, this figure is not verified because her actual earnings and net worth are yet to be revealed.
Barker primarily earns money through her influence as a well-known social media personality. She also makes a good living from her self-titled YouTube channel, which has over 76,700 subscribers and 4.9 million views.

The internet personality has also released multiple songs such as ‘Mistletoe,’ ‘Blue Christmas,’ and many more.
Furthermore, Barker is the daughter of American musician Travis, so her lifestyle is lavish. As previously stated, the internet personality is going to release her own line of cosmetics, so her net worth could increase shortly.
Inside Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman’s Height Difference
There is a noticeable height difference between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are both British actors who are perhaps best known for their roles in the television series Sherlock, which aired from 2010 to 2017.
In the series, Cumberbatch played the title character, Sherlock Holmes, while Freeman portrayed his sidekick, Dr. John Watson. Fans of the show have been obsessed with the height difference between the two actors, with many taking to social media to discuss and comment on it.
According to their IMDB bios, Cumberbatch stands at 6’0″ (183 cm) while Freeman stands at 5’7″ (170 cm). This means there is a noticeable height difference between the two actors when they appear on screen together.
Fans reacted to the height differences
Fans have been discussing the height difference between Cumberbatch and Freeman, and this has been a topic of discussion and memes on social media.
Twitterati has burst with a post that compared the height of these two The Hobbit actors. One Twitter user posted a photo where Cumberbatch and Freeman stood together.
She wrote in the caption, “I’m the same height as martin freeman.. So this is basically mine and benedict Cumberbatch’s heights compared..”

The post compared the height of both actors from their hands to their heads.
On a fan page dedicated to Cumberbatch, a photo was posted featuring Coca-Cola bottles of varying heights, with the bottle labeled ‘Ben’ being taller than the one labeled ‘Martin.’
The caption mocked the height of Cumberbatch and Freeman as it read, “even the height difference is accurate…”

Like the meme above, one of the Twitter users tweeted, “Benedict Cumberbatch is 14 Martin Freemans tall.”
In reply to the tweet, another user tweeted, “But when Benedict Cumberbatch takes his shoes off, his mouth is magically level with Martin Freeman’s face. Nature has decreed it so.”
The tall height of Cumberbatch alone has always dragged the attention of the fans. One fan tweeted, “I hate when I’m trying to sleep then I’m overwhelmed with the need to google something, like how tall is Benedict Cumberbatch I need to know.”
Similarly, the other one wrote on Twitter, “So, I just met Benedict Cumberbatch. I can’t stop shaking. How is he so tall? I barely come up to his frickin’ shoulder.”
Something not well between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman
It’s not surprising that Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are compared to each other, especially since Freeman also played a dwarf in the movie The Hobbit. Along with the fan’s comparison, there was a certain feud seen among the actors.
Mirror, in 2014, also reported that the two actors had a “toxic feud” on the set of the hit TV series Sherlock. According to the article, tensions rose between the two stars due to creative differences and egos. Freeman reportedly felt overshadowed by Cumberbatch’s popularity and the attention his character, Sherlock Holmes, was receiving.
According to the anonymous source, the two actors had a complicated working relationship and barely spoke to each other by the end of the show’s third season. It also suggested that Freeman’s dissatisfaction with the show’s direction may have contributed to his decision to leave after the fourth season.
Freeman, known for his role in The Office, has expressed his dissatisfaction with the overwhelming fan attention that comes with starring in Sherlock.“Being in that show, it is a mini-Beatles thing. People’s expectations, some of it’s not fun anymore,” he said.
In contrast, during an interview with The Telegraph in April 2018, Cumberbatch expressed his disagreement and criticized his co-star’s remarks. He noted, “I’m very grateful for the support, but that’s about it. It takes on its own thing. But that happens with every franchise or entity like this.”
Fans Want Nessa Barrett to Collab with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear
Will Nessa Barrett work with Lana Del Rey and Blackbear in the future?
Fans want American singer Nessa Barrett to collaborate with Lana Del Rey and Mat Musto aka Blackbeard, after they followed each other on Instagram.
Barrett’s fans became excited about the collaboration with Lana Del Rey after she mentioned her name in an interview at the American Music Awards. She was asked, “if you could record with one artist then who would it be?” to which Barrett said, “I feel like Lana. I just love her and I am very inspired by her. She is all over my playlist. I feel like she has just a distinct style. I appreciate her as an artist.”
On November 21, 2022, Variety posted a clip of her interview with the caption, “Nessa Barrett says her dream collaborator is Lana del Rey.” Following the post, many Barretts’ fans expressed their desire to see them in a future album.
One social media user wrote, “omg these two women would be so iconic together,” while another said, “friend I saw you talking about her and now I read this here I also remembered you kkkkk,” in Portuguese.
Barrett and Del Rey started following each other on social media shortly after Barrett mentioned her desire to collaborate with Del Rey. Barrett also followed Blackbear, which his followers noticed right away and expressed their desire for them to collaborate in the music.
Similarly, whore4tea posted a screenshot of their social media account showing that they had recently followed each other and wrote, “First Lana Del Rey followed her, now blackbear?? We need a collaboration!” followed by a smiley and a heart emoji.
Even though fans are excited to see Barrett, Lana Del Rey, and Blackbear working together on new music, the singers have yet to respond.
Nessa Barrett is TikToker turned singer
When Barrett first entered the public eye, she was well-known for her lip-syncing videos, and now, she’s kicked off a pretty massive music career. She first released her piano-based ballad debut single ‘Pain’ in 2020.

Later in October of the same year, Barrett released her second single, ‘If U Love Me,’ and in August 2021, her song ‘I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead’ debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Barrett’s life has revolved around music. “If I’m being honest, music is one of the only ways that I can express myself because I can say so much that’s on my mind without actually saying it,” she said in an interview with the music blog Cool Accidents. “It’s my only outlet, my only coping skill and it does help.”
Blackbear dropped out of high school to pursue a music career
Growing up with a heroin-addicted father, Blackbear found solace and escape in music. He then dropped out of high school to pursue music full-time and began sending demos to people in the music industry.
Later, he received one response from the manager of R&B singer Ne-Yo, who invited the young Mat to Los Angeles to spend a week writing songs with him.
Since then, Blackbear entered the music industry and released various studio albums, including, Deadroses, Help, Digital Druglord, and many more.
Lana Del Rey has had a lifelong interest in music
Del Rey began her career by performing at open mic nights and club gigs. She entered a songwriting competition in 2006; she did not win, but a panel judge assisted her in creating a demo, which led to her signing with the indie label ‘5 Points.’
Later, Del Rey posted self-made music videos for her songs ‘Video Games’ and ‘Blue Jeans’ to YouTube in 2011, with vintage footage interspersed with shots of her singing on her webcam.
After a lengthy career in the music industry, her song ‘Born to Die’ achieved commercial success, charting at number one in 11 countries and debuting at number two on the US Billboard 200 album chart. She has since released several albums, including Born to Die, Ultraviolence, Lust for Life, and many more.
