Netflix announced today that A Series Of Unfortunate Events will be returning for a second season to continue its retelling of Daniel Handler's young adult book series. It had already been expected that the show would continue, seeing as how the first season only covered the first four books in the series, but today's news confirms its return.
The streaming service delivered the announcement using a cryptic YouTube video that directs viewers to a website that contains a letter from Lemony Snicket himself with the good news.
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events brings twisty children's tales to life as Snicket narrates the story of the orphaned Baudelaire children, who are placed into the care of their distant relative Count Olaf after their parents are killed in a mysterious fire. After things don't work out, the children embark on a fateful adventure full of trials and tribulations as they elude Olaf and uncover the long-held mystery behind a secret society from their parents' past.
No return date has been set yet for the show's return, though it is expected that Season 2 will cover books five through nine of the novels.
