Two months to the day since Season 1 hit the streaming service, Netflix have officially ordered a second season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, their terrific adaptation of Daniel Handler’s bestselling novels.
Netflix revealed “a miserable message” today about the show, which reveals a URL directing viewers to www.VastlyFrighteningDecision.com where a letter from Lemony Snicket himself reveals the series has been renewed for a second season!
