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.
Marrying whimsy and dread with a delectable musicality, this is a wonderfully faithful version of Snicket’s marvellous novels.
In readapting a literary classic, it seems Netflix have done right by Lemony Snicket, and right by us.
This week, Netflix launches our most anticipated show of 2017: the new 8-part adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events! In a special issue, we preview the new series, including Neil Patrick Harris’ portrayal of Count Olaf.
