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. In true Lemony Snicket fashion, there was a bit of a scavenger hunt for the trailer before it was officially released.
'So dive on in, distract yourself with this first look at season 2 of A Series Of Unfortunate Events'.
Anyone languishing on their couch this New Year's Day may have had in mind to indulge themselves in a little Netflix, only to be greeted with the most ghastly of visages.More news: Court rules against Gresham bakers in same-sex wedding cake case
"I'm so sorry to disturb your recovery, but it's time for us to get this New Year's Day binge started", says Olaf.
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. And of course, Harris will play a bevy of characters himself, all of whom are really Count Olaf in disguise (but only the kids can tell).
The show, based on Lemony Snicket's beloved book series, stars Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes and Presley Smith as the Baudelaire children, who were orphaned after their parents died in a fire. "Because that's the effect I was going for". The show's already been renewed for season 3, so fans should be assured Netflix is intent on adapting the entire series (unlike a certain film studio).
