The novel-based series gets another pickup.
April 4, 2017
It is being reported that Netflix has renewed A Series Of Unfortunate Events for a third season. The early pickup comes just weeks after the streaming service renewed the series for Season 2. But while early, the news does not come as a big surprise given as the first two seasons of the show are only expected to cover up to book nine of the Daniel Handler young adult novel series.
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.
The third and final season, which was announced in April 2017 and released on January 1, 2019, consists of seven episodes and adapts the remaining four books.
I understand it's dark comedy and it's not "real", I just don't find it enjoyable to watch. Neil Patrick Harris is awful in this show - and I don't have anything against him as I think he's been great in other shows.
Exactly my thinking, but then I did not read the books growing up. They are supposed to have a rather large following, although I find it hard to believe?
The cruelty and strange storyline did not sit well with me, lately I think we see rather too much torture in TV-series, and while it may fit in with the action based series, I do not like it there either and some of the series I stopped watching (Arrow) or did not start after sampling a few episodes (Daredevil). But in a series which has children in it and as a possible target group? That is just wrong, and if I am wrong with the target group, I want to know who watches this and why?
A series has to offer an interesting storyline, characters I can relate to, a few stars I really like, or something really different from other series to be watched by me, hopefully all of it or most.
This? Has none of it.
