Attention fans of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events: the Baudelaire children are heading back to Netflix! An Unfortunate Announcement was made via Netflix’s YouTube page and other social media platforms earlier today that Violet, Klaus, and Sunny will return for a second season containing ten episodes and spanning five books. The Netflix original series premiered in January of this year, and is based on a YA book series of the same title that began in 1999. Season two will begin in book five, “The Austere Academy,” and will follow Baudelaire orphans’ misadventures at Prufrock Preparatory School. Will the children ever be able to evade the clutches of Count Olaf? There’s only one way to find out!
A release date for the second season has not yet been revealed, though a letter from Lemony Snicket himself indicates that production is soon to be underway. Check out Netflix’s announcement video below!
