The Netflix adaptation of “A Series of Unfortunate Events” has been renewed for a third season. The Netflix show, which debuted on January, was previously renewed for a second season. With its third season now in the horizon, fans can expect the story to meet its fitting conclusion. As per the show’s official Twitter account, season 3 will place focus on the final four entries in the book series. The announcement of a third season comes as good news for fans, especially since the show’s second season had been announced not too long ago.

With a third season in place, the Netflix show will be able to properly wrap up the story without any loose ends. This is unlike the story’s first adaptation which saw a movie release back in 2004. The film, which starred Jim Carrey (Count Olaf), Emily Browning (Violet Baudelaire), Liam Aiken (Klaus Baudelaire), Kara and Shelby Hoffman (Sunny Baudelaire) and Jude Law (Lemony Snicket), had covered the first three books in the series. The movie also starred Meryl Streep, Timothy Spall, Billy Connolly and Catherine O’Hara in its cast as well. Unfortunately, the movie was unable to take off as a film franchise despite receiving generally positive reviews.

First published in 1999 and concluded in 2006, “A Series Of Unfortunate Events” follows the story of the Baudelaire children who are left orphaned after a terrible fire killed their parents and left their home in shambles. Thus launched the Baudelaires’ misfortunes as they continually jumped from one guardian to another, all while avoiding the evil clutches of Count Olaf who wants to get his hands on the Baudelaire fortune. The series was written by author Daniel Handler who uses "Lemony Snicket" as his pen name for the novels. Handler also plays an active role in the Netflix adaptation, coming in as an executive producer and scriptwriter.

While the first season of the Netflix show covered the first four books in the series, the second season is set to adapt books five to nine of the series with ten episodes. Meanwhile, the third season will cover the last four novels as mentioned.

This time around, Count Olaf is portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris. He is joined by Patrick Warburton as narrator Lemony Snicket. The Baudelaires are played by Malina Weissman as Violet, Louis Hynes as Klaus and Presley Smith as Sunny. The “A Series of Unfortunate Events” television show is now available on Netflix.
