Netflix’s adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events was a huge hit when it came out, and the second season is set to premiere this March. Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Count Olaf, confirms that the show won’t go on for longer, and the next one after season two will be the last.
Talking to TV Guide, Harris confirmed:
“We’re three seasons all in… We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part, we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”
Aside from playing the lead villain of the series, Harris is also attached to the series as a producer. The first season had eight episodes which covered the first four books in the series. With the added number of episodes in Season Two, the next five to be covered will be The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, The Vile Village, The Hostile Hospital, and The Carnivorous Carnival.
Though I am admittedly more of a fan of Jim Carrey’s more grounded version of Unfortunate Events, a lot of fans applaud the show for being more faithful to the books. It helps when you have enough time to cover more material.
The next season of A Series of Unfortunate Events comes out March 30 on Netflix.
