Coming off the heels of its season 2 announcement less than a month ago, Netflix has renewed Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” for a third season.
The streaming service has ordered a third series based on the children’s novels written by Daniel Handler, aka Lemony Snicket, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed. As of now, Netflix has declined comment on the renewal.
“A Series of Unfortunate Events” follows the tragic upbringing of the Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny. The children constantly suffer from the sinister Count Olaf’s (Neil Patrick Harris) attempts to steal away their family fortune.
The show’s first season, which debuted January of this year, was generally well-received among critics and viewers. The second season will proceed after the events of the fourth book, “The Miserable Mill,” and leads into the fifth, “The Austere Academy.” No official release date for the next season has been announced as of yet.
Currently available on Netflix, the series stars Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, Malina Weissman as Violet, Louis Hynes as Klaus, Bernadette Peters as Aunt Josephine, Joan Cusack as Justice Strauss, K. Todd Freeman as Mr. Arthur Poe, and Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket.
