Earlier this year saw the release of the first season of A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. The show starred Neil Patrick Harris as the devious Count Olaf, and lovingly adapted the first four books of the children’s book series.

Netflix has since gone on to greenlight the next two seasons of the show, which will cover the rest of the dark and humorous series. Up first is Season 2, which will cover books five through nine. As expected, the new season will take things into even darker territory, and will be “sadder,” executive producer Barry Sonnenfeld told EW.

Harris delved deeper into what the season will have to offer.

“Now that we’re in season 2 — and I think the same is true with the books — now the Baudelaires can start to take some control and try and take more action. I think season 2 ends up being a little bigger in its scope and scale, but also allows for a little bit of a more fevered heartbeat from our protagonists.”

Given how much the Baudelaires were tossed around back in that first season, we think them taking more control and action will be very welcome.
