Plus, find out when it premieres.
If you enjoyed watching the orphaned Baudelaire siblings outwit and outrun their distant relative Count Olaf on the Netflix show A Series of Unfortunate Events, then you’ll be happy to know that there’s a release date for the second season. Netflix just gave fans a special sneak peek at the new episodes and announced the premiere date, which is March 30, 2018.
Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) himself introduces the teaser trailer for season two, which you can watch below. In the minute-long clip we see the Baudelaire siblings in a number of different tricky scenarios—dealing with people with pitchforks in the countryside and coming face-to-face with Count Olaf in a penthouse apartment. Olaf says menacingly in the trailer, “Does this seem like a nightmare? Because that’s the effect I was going for.”
For those who haven’t read the children’s series by Lemony Snicket, or haven’t watched the first season, A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the Baudelaire siblings (Violet, Klaus, and Sunny) who have become orphans after their parents die in a mysterious fire. They are sent to live with Count Olaf, who wants to steal their inheritance. After running away from him, they are sent to live with other relatives throughout the first season with Count Olaf following them each time.
The first season covers books one through four, while the second season will cover books five through nine in the novel series. In addition to Harris, the show also features recurring and guest stars like Will Arnett, Joan Cusack, Alfre Woodard and Catherine O’Hara. Take a look at the trailer below.
