Prepare for a new villainess and more wild antics in the next season of A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS!
The first look images from A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 are here!
The second season of the hit Netflix show will follow books 5 through 9 of the series, with author Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) continuing to craft up episodes in the writers’ room.
A new sneak peek in Entertainment Weekly is showing off a few elements of the off-the-rails story we’ll be getting, including The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, and The Hostile Hospital, including an introduction to Lucy Punch as Count Olaf’s new sidekick, Esmé Squalor!
“Lucy Punch is kind of a genius,” Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Count Olaf, told EW. “I can’t wait for everyone to see her take on her character. She’s almost a livewire of electricity that is just unhinged and everywhere, yet fully guarded and in control, but not. It’s a great performance.”
Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events doesn’t have a release date quite yet, but be aware: The first season came out on Friday the 13th, and April 13, 2018 is our next chance for a repeat!
