Netflix has revealed that a second season of ‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events‘ was coming in style by giving us a website with details and a short little teaser narrated by Patrick Warburton reprising his role as Snicket. The first season ended up adapting the first four books in Daniel Handler’s 13-book series and Handler plans on being able to tell this tale in a three season run. There is no word at this time if all of the seasons will be 8-episode runs, but that will likely be the case.
To announce the upcoming season, we got this delightful little video which you can right here:
If you pay close attention to it, you shall see individual letters highlight throughout the teaser. This highlighting is by no means an accident, as unfortunate as the one which befell the Baudelaire children, but a hidden message! If you follow through it will spell out “URL www.VastlyFrighteningDecision.com” which is where the real fun begins.
Previously it sounded as if there would be ten episodes in the second season and that would catch us up to the ninth novel. This means that we’ll see ‘The Austere Academy,’ ‘The Ersatz Elevator,’ ‘The Vile Village,’ ‘The Hostile Hospital,’ and ‘The Carnivorous Carnival’ all being streamed into our homes.
There has been no announcement on a release date, but if they are going to film the seasons back to back to keep the children looking the same as the show progresses, I would expect that we’ll be hearing more sooner than later.

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, 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.
