A Series of Unfortunate Events Renewed for Two Seasons
Netflix has renewed A Series of Unfortunate Events
for a second and third season, according to Variety
. The series was initially just renewed for a second season, but Netflix announced less than a month later that the series would also be getting third installment.
The series is based on the best-selling book series of the same name written by Lemony Snicket (pen name of Daniel Handler). The show stars Neil Patrick Harris who plays Count Olaf, the major villain of the series who is after the fortune of the Baudelaire orphans. The Baudelaire children are played by Malina Weissman (Violet), Louis Hynes (Klaus), and Presley Smith (Sunny). Other cast members of the first season include Patrick Warburton, K. Todd Freeman, Will Arnett, Cobie Smulders, and Joan Cusack.
The first season covers the first four books in the series, so it is predicted that the next two seasons will cover the rest of the 13 novels. There is no premiere date set for either of the upcoming seasons.
To celebrate the news of the renewal, Neil Patrick Harris even got a real tattoo that his character has on the show, which is an eye on his left ankle.
Are you excited for the rest of this series to come to life?
