The trailer for the final season of Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events has been released. It was revealed back in February of this year that Season 3 would be the last season of the hit show, which tackles books 9 through 13 by Lemony Snicket, aka Daniel Handler. Neil Patrick Harris said that the show would not go on for a fourth season and will not deviate from the original stories, which more than likely bummed out some fans of the show while making others happy that it won't stray too far from the source material.
The trailer for Unfortunate Events Season 3 looks epic and it begins by recounting all of the terrible things that Neil Patrick Harris' Count Olaf has done. Additionally, it also introduces Allison Williams as "K," aka Kit Snicket, who plays a pivotal role in the final books, with some pretty awesome tricks up her sleeve. If that wasn't enough, there's teases of familiar characters, and the histories of the Baudelaie family, the Snickets, and Count Olaf. There's a lot going on, but it all looks great, keeping with the same aesthetic from the previous two seasons.
A Series of Unfortunate Events is based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket. Season 3 premieres on January 1st, 2019 exclusively on Netflix. It stars Emmy and Tony Award-winner Neil Patrick Harris, and it recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans - Violet, Klaus, and Sunny - whose evil uncle Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. After foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings might finally discover the truth about their parents' mysterious death in Season 3, while unraveling the layers of a clandestine organization, and revealing the secrets of the coveted, missing sugar bowl.
A Series of Unfortunate Events showrunner Barry Sonnenfeld promises that Season 3 will be the most emotional one to date and also states that there is a lot more action, as well as the kids becoming less like victims this time around. Some fans of the series were less than thrilled with the final book in the series, called The End, but Sonnenfeld promises that they worked very closely to make something that will be very satisfying for long-time fans of the original book series. He wouldn't go into details, but states that it "wraps up in such a strong way."
While Barry Sonnenfeld wouldn't go into details about the final episode of A Series of Unfortunate Events, he did tease that many will, "think we came up with the idea at the beginning of the first season," which sounds promising. Regardless, the end is near, so Season 3 is going to prove to be bittersweet for fans. Thankfully, it looks even more epic than past installments.
