Netflix Sets Premiere Date For 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' Season 2

The last show's star, Neil Patrick Harris, knows the importance of making a memorable impression and the difficulty of breaking through in a crowded environment.

Despite its popularity in the printed form, "A Series of Unfortunate Events" has always proven a little hard to adapt to live action.

Gloom and despair are coming to Netflix in 2018, with the streaming service releasing the first teaser for A Series of Unfortunate Events season two.

A new teaser reveals the first footage from the second season, as well as a look at Count Olaf's increasingly colorful costumes. Season one covered the first four books in the 13 novel series, where Count Olaf becomes the guardian of three orphaned children, Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny Baudelaire (Presley Smith).

Netflix has just given us a first look at season two of A Series Of Unfortunate Events on the first day of 2018, and it looks just as good as you'd expect from the show. 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. Season three, which is already confirmed, will adapt the final set of books. Neil is the sort of performer who can tackle all of his various eccentricities, and we've got a feeling that he very much enjoyed the opportunity to play someone who is so fundamentally different from Barney Stinson in just about every single way.
