That's right: Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Count Olaf, and Lemony Snicket himself have confirmed that A Series Of Unfortunate Events will be returning to Netflix with a second season.
“A Series of Unfortunate Events has been renewed for season two. Exciting! Unless, of course, you're a Baudelaire…” Harris said in his Twitter post.
Netflix released a video on YouTube narrated by Lemony Snicket, played by Patrick Warburton, with certain letters and words highlighted in yellow, spelling out: “URL www.VastlyFrighteningDecision.com.”
Following through to the site, Lemony Snicket himself explained that the show had been renewed, with a special note saying: “I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.”
It has come to my attention that, despite my repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work, known collectively as “A Series Of Unfortunate Events.” Some of you have even binged, a word which here mans, “Watched several episodes right in a row, despite having much better things to do with your time.”
To my horror, Netflix has been encouraged by this, and funneled their ill-gotten gains toward a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series. Even as we speak, set buildings, costume designers, and trauma specialists are snapping into action, the better to bring you even more upsetting episodes, all because of your reputed enthusiasm for this grim so-called family programming.
I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.
With all due respect,
Season 1 of Netflix’s series adapted the first four novels over the course of eight episodes and premiered Friday, Jan. 13, 2017.
There is still no word on when the second season will make its debut.
A Series Of Unfortunate Events was taken to the big screen in 2004 by Paramount Pictures with a film starring Jim Carrey. The book series began in 1999 and continued through to 2006. Lemony Snicket is the pen name of Daniel Handler.
