Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events Gets S2 Teaser, Release Date

A Series Of Unfortunate Events season 2 release date announced in new trailer

A Series Of Unfortunate Events is back

Neil Patrick Harris is back as the villainous Count Olaf, seen below brandishing a pair of extremely large knives.

Count Olaf also revealed that the series is going to be available on the subscription site from the 30th of March, meaning that there is quite a while to wait. "So dive on in, distract yourself with this first look at season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events".

Based on the internationally bestselling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Handler), the series 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.

Nevertheless, Netflix has sunk a lot of money into the show thus far, and the streaming service seems eager to capitalize on this by creating a second season what will, hopefully, be better received than the first one.

Along with the air date, we're now getting a first glimpse of season two with the just-released trailer. It's basically pretty standard stuff for any "Unfortunate Events" adaptation, and nothing to show that this season will be anything different to what we've had before. The final four books will be adapted for the third season, which now has no release date. Season three, which is already confirmed, will adapt the final set of books.

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.
