Netflix has released a brand new trailer for their adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, giving us a better idea of what to expect from the 8-part series when it arrives on the streaming service in January 2017.
The trailer provides our first official look at Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, as well as Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes in their respective roles as Violet Baudelaire and Klaus Baudelaire with their little sister, Sunny. We also see K. Todd Freeman as Mr. Poe, the executor of the Baudelaire parents estate.
You can watch the trailer below.
In addition to the new trailer, Netflix has also released three never-before-seen images from the series, which you can check out below.
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.
All episodes of A Series of Unfortunate Events debut on Netflix on January 13, 2017.
