While I’ve never been much of a fan of the book series A Series of Unfortunate Events (they were after my time, and read a bit young by the time I got around to it), I was a huge fan with what Netflix was able to accomplish with their television adaptation. Lasting eight episodes, that first season covered the first four books of the series, with the Baudelaire orphans hopping from foster parent to foster parent.
On their tail the entire time has been the nefarious Count Olaf. Despite his obvious evil nature, the Baudelaire’s have had virtually no help from adults in escaping his clutches, and with the upcoming second season, it looks like that trend will continue. This particular season will span 10 episodes, covering the next five books, and in it, the conspiracy between the Baudelaire’s parents and Count Olaf will deepen.
As bad as things got for the kids in that first season, things look to get a whole lot worse, even as they find allies in the Quagmire children, who are similarly plagued with misfortunate.
Below is the official synopsis for A Series of Unfortunate Events:
“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”
