It startles the viewer with something that appears to be a woman-ghost in a white shade who is attacked by Lockwood when the creature comes to attack Lucy. She then gets stuck on the strain after being pushed by the spirit. Lockwood then slams the spirit with a fireball after keeping pace with his sword.
He turns the light spirit against him, trying to persuade it and every time it tries to pour itself on him, he is seen to dodge and save his life. Meanwhile, Lucy’s voice is heard from the background, yelling out his name aloud, LOCKWOOD!
Right when she was about to fall from the top of the stairs, he shows up and saves her like a heroic savior. He goes, “Did it touch you?” to which she replies, “Of course not. I’d be dead. There pops the title in bold letters, LOCKWOOD & CO.
After watching the teaser, viewers are drawn in for the ride. Are you all perplexed after watching the teaser? It actually ticks so many boxes from a viewer’s point of view. And Lockwood & Co will probably become a fan-favorite show once released.
