Netflix’s original show A Series of Unfortunate Events hasn’t even had its second season drop, and already we’re talking about it ending. Well, when your series is based on a limited bunch of novels (13 in total), with a beginning, middle, and end, I suppose it makes sense.

The first season of the show was eight episodes long, and each episode would cover one-half of a novel — meaning that the whole season covered the first four books. The second season is set at 10 episodes, and will cover the next five novels, leaving an extra four novels for Season 3. But will they call it quits after, or find a way to keep things going?

Speaking with TV Guide, star Neil Patrick Harris confirmed that three seasons is all we can expect:

“We’re three seasons all in. We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”

This is great news to hear, as there’s nothing worse than a series overstaying its welcome. Plus, staying true to the spirit of the source material is generally something I’m in favor of. That being said, I can’t say I’ve read more than one of these books, so it’s more the principle of it than anything else.
