The television adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events has been renewed already by Netflix for a third season.
After receiving its season two renewal last month, Netflix has decided to already bestow upon the Neil Patrick Harris led series a third season.
Paramount and Netflix began the journey towards adaptation back in 2014, a full ten years after the Jim Carey movie adaptation failed to impress. However, the first season of the show went down well with critics and seems to be popular with fans too.
Season one of the show premiered back in January of this year with eight episodes, which adapted the first four books in the series. Season two is upping things to ten episodes. There is no word yet how many instalments season three will contain.
The book series has sold over 65 million copies and has been translated into 43 languages.
Starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton, Joan Cusack, Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes.
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events season one is available to watch on Netflix now.
