The trailer for the third and final season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events dropped today and it looks like the Baudelaire children's story will finally come to a close in a revelation-filled season complete with a slew of further misfortunes.
When we last saw the Baudelaires, eldest daughter Violet (Malina Weissman) and middle child Klaus (Louis Hynes) were careening off a cliff, while the despicable Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) got away with baby Sunny (Presley Smith.)
Throughout the series' first two seasons Count Olaf, leader of a villainous acting troupe, has used all manner of disguises in his pursuit of the orphaned Baudelaires and their sizable fortune. Although, as the trailer makes clear, his fellow bad guys aren't that impressed with the money he could take in from the theft.
That hasn't stopped Olaf from destroying every new living situation the Baudelaires have found themselves in. And it doesn't look like things have changed much in the new season.
However, the trailer indicates the Baudelaires may be taking matters into their own hands in the final episodes. They've realized that their parents had been training them to become members of secret organization VFD all along. What the VFD actually is and the Baudelaire parents' role in it should be revealed in the third season.
Even more fascinating, it appears that the Baudelaires may finally meet the narrator of their tale, Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton,) who could be the key to uncovering the mystery.
The final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events will arrive Jan. 1, 2019, on Netflix. It will adapt the final four books in the bestselling series, The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril and The End.
A Series of Unfortunate Events stars Neil Patrick Harris, Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman, with Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue and Roger Bart, among others.
