Earlier this year, Netflix released A Series of Unfortunate Events, an adaptation of the dark children’s book series. Up until the release, fans of the books were only able to get their adaptation fix from the mid-2000s film starring Jim Carrey. While the movie did its best, at the end of the day, they were only able to tackle a few of the books in the series, making for a somewhat unsatisfying finish to the whole deal. There was a lot left untold and uncovered, and for a while, it seemed as though they may never get covered.
Some time ago, Netflix announced that they would be adapting the entire book series into a show, and when it dropped back in January, it hit all the right notes. Between its strong writing, great cast, and pitch-perfect tone, it covered all the aspects of the books that fans loved. Each book was covered over the course of two episodes, and while they stuck pretty close to the source material, they still managed to throw in a couple of unexpected surprises.
Given how amazing the show was, it was expected that it would get a second season (especially given how well it did), but as with all things, we had to wait for an official announcement. Today, Netflix posted a video on YouTube, and in it, we found a mesmerizing puzzle.
Okay, so maybe the puzzle wasn’t all that tough to crack, but if you went to the URL indicated in the video (www.vastlyfrighteningdecision.com), you’ll find a page with the following letter.
This is really just sort of a fun, cute way to tease audiences for a second season of the show. If you somehow haven’t had a chance to check out the first season yet, we highly recommend it. Its style of humor isn’t what you see a lot of these days, and Neil Patrick Harris’ portrayal of Count Olaf is perfectly terrifying-yet-hilarious.
