On January 2, 2018, Netflix released a new promotional video on their A Series of Unfortunate Events Facebook page. The new season will continue the story of the Baudelaire orphans and Count Olaf. The new episodes are set to premier on March 30, 2018.
Based on the 13 novel book series, by Daniel Handler, Netflix released the first season on January 13, 2017.
The series was summarized on Wikipedia as the following:
“When a mysterious fire kills their parents, the Baudelaire children are placed into the care of their distant relative Count Olaf, an actor who is determined to claim the family fortune for himself. Following Olaf’s failed attempt, the Baudelaires set out to elude Olaf and uncover the mystery behind a secret society from their parents’ past.”
If you haven’t watched the first season, prepare to binge watch in preparation for the upcoming new episodes. This show is worth the watch! Neil Patrick Harris does a fantastic job as Count Olaf! The entire cast is very good, and it’s hard to stop at just one episode.
The first season has 8 episodes that encompass books 1-4. The second season, releasing in March, will contain 10 episodes, covering books 5-9. It has been confirmed that a third season is approved and will cover the final 4 books.
