Netflix Renews ‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events’ for Season 2

A Series of Unfortunate Events, News

Only Lemony Snicket himself considers this bad news: Netflix has renewed A Series of Unfortunate Events for Season 2.

The news was revealed Monday in a clever tweet from the show’s official Twitter account that directed fans toward VastlyFrighteningDecision.com.

The webpage, titled “A Very Unfortunate Announcement,” contains a “letter” from Lemony Snicket that says Netflix has “funneled their ill-gotten gains towards a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series.”

The letter ends, “I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.”

Netflix has not yet announced how many episodes will be in Season 2.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events

A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the book series of the same name, follows the woeful tale of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith, respectively), whose parents perish in a terrible fire. They’re placed in the care of Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris), a villainous man who just wants to get his hands on their enormous fortune.

Olaf follows in disguise as the Baudelaires are shuffled from guardian to guardian, and the children have to take care of themselves when the adults in their lives are blind to Olaf’s tricks. At the same time, the Baudelaires try to learn more about the secret organization their parents kept hidden from them.

Patrick Warburton also stars as Lemony Snicket, who narrates the Baudelaires’ story.

The show’s eight-episode Season 1 covered the first four books in the series, ending with Mr. Poe (K. Todd Freeman) dropping the children off at Prufrock Preparatory School, the boarding school where the fifth book, “The Austere Academy,” takes place.

Although the Baudelaires don’t know it yet, two of the Quagmire triplets (played by Avi Lake and Dylan Kingwell) have also just arrived at the school, and they, too, have questions about their parents’ mysterious organization.
