Netflix has released the first trailer for Unfortunate Events Season 2, which reveals that new episodes will premiere on March 30. The video begins with Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, who directly addresses each viewer who he assumes was "burning the midnight oil" last night. Brandishing a pair of blades, Olaf introduces the first footage from Season 2 along with the spring release date on Netflix.
The actual footage from the new season is quite brief, featuring the Baudelaire children climbing a ladder up to a mysterious device in the sky, along with another key scene where Klaus presses a remote button to open the curtains, only to find Count Olaf standing behind them, asking if the shock of seeing him has produced a "nightmare" effect, which is exactly what he is going for. A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 promises to be another crowd pleasing hit.
After Mr. Poe sends the Baudelaire children to boarding school until a suitable guardian can be found, Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny (Presley Smith) are greeted by their unbearable new classmate Carmelita Spats (Kitana Turnbull). Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman (among others) return for season two. New additions to the cast include (but are not limited to) Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue and Roger Bart.
Based on the internationally best selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), season two of the Netflix original series plunges further into the epic world of this darkly comedic mystery. Executive produced by Emmy Award-winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler - the new season of A Series of Unfortunate Events consists of ten cinematic one-hour episodes, and premieres worldwide spring 2018, exclusively on Netflix. Starring Emmy and Tony Award-winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans - Violet, Klaus, and Sunny - and their extraordinary encounters with the devious Count Olaf who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. Foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings discover clues to their parents' mysterious death, links to a covert organization, and begin to unlock long-held family secrets.
This Netflix original series has not been renewed for Season 3 yet, but with the second season rapidly approaching, we could find out soon. Given the popularity of this hit show, a third season seems entirely possible.
