Netflix has renewed “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” for a second season. The streamer made the announcement on Twitter via a letter from “author” Lemony Snicket. “It has come to my attention that, despite my repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work, collectively known as ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events,’” the note read. “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… I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.”
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books, “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith) after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance. Following Olaf’s failed attempt, the Baudelaires set out to elude Olaf and uncover the mystery behind a secret society from their parents’ past.
Debuting on Jan. 13, season two and is intended to consist of ten episodes that adapt books five through nine of the novel series.
