Lockwood and Co. Age Rating & Parents Guide: Who Are Appropriate to Watch the Netflix Show?

Talking about the age rating and parents guide, Lockwood and Co. on Netflix has a TV-14 rating in the United States and a 12 rating in the United Kingdom. Meaning that children below 14 years and 12 years are not recommended to watch the show in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively. This rating was given because Lockwood & Co. contains foul language, s*x references, and violent scenes. 

Joe Cornish, an English filmmaker, and comedian, first came to prominence in 2011 with the cult comedy Attack the Block. Since then, he’s written and directed a few projects (including Ant-Man), but it’s fair to say he’s been rather quiet lately. Cornish returns to the pop culture kingdom this year with Lockwood & Co, a supernatural detective series on Netflix.

It follows a trio of adolescent paranormal investigators who run a small startup in London that specializes in combating deadly spirits. Ruby Stokes (Lucy Carlyle), Cameron Chapman (Anthony Lockwood), and Ali Hadji-Heshmati (George Karim) make up the trio that premiered on Netflix on January 27.

Meanwhile, the British Netflix original is based on Jonathan Stroud‘s young adult book series of the same name. The episodes were directed by Joe Cornish along with William McGregor, and Catherine Morshead. Cornish also co-wrote the scripts with other talented writers. So, if Lockwood & Co. sounds like something you’d be interested in watching, we’d be happy to share the parents’ guide and age rating with you. This way, you’ll know whether you can watch it with children present.

Previously, we touched on The Golden Blade.

Lockwood and Co. Age Rating: The Netflix Show Is Rated Tv-14 in the United States, but 12 Rating in the United Kingdom; This Rating Was Given Because It Contains Foul Language, S*x References, and Violent Scenes!

It’s always thrilling when a new Netflix show promises to be the next big thing. The streamer has become the most popular over the years, which is perhaps unsurprising given the constant stream of content that floods our screens. Lockwood And Co. is the most recent to grace us, and it’s already making waves that have a TV-14 rating in the United States and a 12 rating in the United Kingdom. The reason for this age rating is due to the show’s strong language and violence.

The TV-14 rating essentially means that some of the content in the show may be inappropriate for audiences under the age of 14, and parents are advised to exercise caution. Similarly, the 12 rating indicates the same thing for audiences under the age of 12.

Overall, we wouldn’t recommend watching this with younger children. There will be numerous scenes involving creepy spirits, which may be frightening to some children. However, if you want to watch this show with kids 14 and up, we believe you should be fine. However, we recommend that you check it out for yourself before making a decision.

The violence isn’t overpowering, but the appearance and design of the spirits may frighten young children, as a number of ghosts appear throughout the series. There is some foul language throughout, but it is sparse, as are the s*x references.

The show is based on writer Jonathan Stroud‘s same-named book series, which was written for a young adult audience. Given this, the Netflix series was not created to alienate the existing fandom who have read the books.

Is There Going to Be a Lockwood and Co. Season 2?

Fans of supernatural teen dramas have plenty of options on Netflix, but the latest entry in the genre, Lockwood & Co., is well worth their time. The British series is adapted by Joe Cornish of Attack the Block fame from Jonathan Stroud‘s series of novels, and it has a fantastic setting, story, and cast, most notably Ruby Stokes (@rubystokess) from Bridgerton. The show’s first season was first announced in 2017. Netflix announced the acquisition at the end of 2020. The show premiered in January 2023, after filming began in July 2021.

There’s no reason why the entire process should be repeated before Season 2, especially since Netflix now owns the rights, but the 18-month filming period is critical. This is not the type of show that can be completed in a couple of months. It’s jam-packed with high-quality visual effects, intricate action choreography, and on-location filming. If the show is renewed, which seems likely, we won’t see it until at least mid-late 2024.

Will Lockwood and Co, however, be renewed? That is the question, and the answer is probably yes. While Netflix has a history of canceling popular shows in the same genre, such as Warrior Nun and The Bastard Son and the Devil Himself, this IP already has a fanbase thanks to Stroud’s books and plenty more material to adapt in future seasons (the first season collapses the first two books in the series, The Screaming Staircase and The Whispering Skull.)
