Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" will indeed return for a second season, as announced by Netflix.
A video was posted by Netflix's official Youtube channel with a message directing people to the website Vastlyfrighteningdecision.com. On the site, a letter signed by Lemony Snicket regretfully informs viewers that the woeful adventures of the Baudelaire children will continue.
"Even as we speak, set builders, costume designers and trauma specialists are snapping into action, the better to bring you even more upsetting episodes, all because of your reputed enthusiasm for this grim example of so-called family programming," Snicket writes. "I hope you're happy. Because you won't be, ever again."
"A Series of Unfortunate Events" is based on the children's novels written by Lemony Snicket. The events follow the tragic upbringing of the Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny. The show's first season debuted January of this year; next season picks up after the events of the fourth book, "The Miserable Mill," and leads into the fifth, "The Austere Academy." No official premiere 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.
