Less than a month after announcing a second season, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events has been renewed for a third season. The multi-season renewal is extremely rare for Netflix, and shows great faith in the series.
Should A Series of Unfortunate Events continue its current model, season 3 will take viewers up to the 12th book, leaving one remaining book. However, due to the odd numbered series, it is likely season 3 could include an extra two episodes.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events chronicles the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith) after their parents’ untimely death in a fire. A careless oversight initially places the children in the custody of a distant relative named Count Olaf (Harris), a mysterious and devious figure who is seeking fortune by way of stealing their inheritance. After his elaborate plans are foiled and his evil intentions revealed, Count Olaf employs a variety of outlandish disguises to situate himself in the children’s path, causing mayhem for the Baudelaires and their subsequent guardians. As the children manage to evade Count Olaf’s scheming attempts to steal their fortune, they pick up clues along the way about their parents’ past.
The series is created by Lemony Snicket author Daniel Handler and executive produced by Handler and Emmy winner Barry Sonnenfeld. The series also features K. Todd Freeman (Mr. Poe), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Alfre Woodard (Aunt Josephine), Catherine O’Hara (Dr. Orwell), Aasif Mandvi (Uncle Monty), Don Johnson (Sir) and more.
Season one of A Series of Unfortunate Events is now streaming on Netflix.
Each Season Of The Marvel/Netflix Shows, Ranked
Just like their siblings in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Netflix’s The Defenders-verse of streaming superheroes goes from two to three entries a year in 2017. First up is the first season of Iron Fist premiering on Netflix in less than two weeks, on March 17, the first six episodes of which are, I’m sorry to say, not very impressive. Fortunately, Marvel TV and Netflix have two more turns at the plate, with all their heroes joining for the highly-anticipated The Defenders team-up, expected this summer, and, in the fall or winter, with The Punisher spin-off starring Jon Bernthal.
Ahead of this wave of new stories, and just like we did with the MCU movies and Marvel movies overall, I thought it would worth taking a look at what’s worked and what hasn’t in each entry of the Netflix shows. Of course, the ranks are all opinion; I expect the first to be somewhat eyebrow-raising.
I decided to switch it up this time, start with the best this time and work my way down. Click Next to start!
