I’d like to say, Dear Reader, that in the upcoming season, the Baudelaire orphans- Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – are living a very happy life, with a loving family, in a positive environment, without a worry in the world. Sadly, I must inform you that they are, in fact, still living in misery, dealing with Count Olaf, who will stop at nothing to get his hands on the orphans inheritance. Perhaps, should we have heeded Lemony Snicket’s warnings in season one, then we would not have to endure the misery that is sure to happen in season two.
Based on the international best selling book series, “Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events”, and produced by Barry Sonnenfeld and author Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket, himself), we go deeper into this dark world as Olaf, once again played by Neil Patrick Harris, finds his evil schemes and disguises foiled by the innocent Baudelaire children, played by Malina Weissman as Violet, Louis Hynes as Klaus, and Presley Smith as Sunny. At the same time, the Baudeliare’s uncover more clues to the truth behind their parents deaths, as well as learning about a secret organization and learn more about their family secrets.
Patrick Warburton returns as our narrator, Lemony Snicket. Also returning for this new season is K. Todd Freeman as Mr. Poe. New this season includes, among others, Nathan Fillion, Lucy Punch, and Roger Bart.
The first season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events adapted the first four books of the series. Season two will consist of ten episodes, adapting books five through nine. The third season, already ordered by Netflix, will adapt the rest of the books, ten through thirteen.
We implore you, heed Lemony Snicket’s warning, do not watch season one, already available on Netflix, in an attempt to either refresh your memory or to watch for the very first time. Also, please do not watch season two, when it becomes available on March 30, 2018. The unpleasantness may be too much to handle. Perhaps instead, we can offer you this Pharrell Williams video?
In all seriousness, we can’t wait for the new season of A Series Of Unfortunate Events, everything from the scenery to the casting was perfect. If season one was any indication, we are in for one fun ride. If you haven’t seen season one, check it out on Netflix, then prepare yourself for season two. Oh, and do enjoy the Pharrell Williams video, as well.
