Netflix dropped the first seasons of three IDW series based on comics between December and February, and has now reached a decision on which series will go forward.  The streamer has ordered a second season of Locke & Key, according to Hollywood Reporter, and declined to renew October Faction and V-Wars, also per THR.

Netflix dropped the first season of Locke & Key February 7 (see “Full ‘Locke & Key’ Trailer”), and must have seen enough of a reaction in the first few weeks to decide to continue.  Locke & Key, by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, was the strongest comic property of the three.

October Faction and V-Wars also dropped in the last few months, with V-Wars dropping December 5 and October Faction on January 23.  The ending of October Faction may not be the worst thing to happen to IDW; the entertainment division showed a loss of $5.6 million in its most recent quarter behind the costs associated with the series (see “IDW Publishing Ekes Out Quarterly Profit”).
