Netflix has released a new teaser trailer for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, a new show based on the book series of the same name which was first announced a couple of years back now.
The trailer is certainly a tease, not showing any actual footage. Instead it features some words from “Lemony Snicket,” the pen name of author Daniel Handler, as portrayed by Seinfeld and The Tick star Patrick Warburton. There’s also the tiniest of cameos by Neil Patrick Harris, who will be playing Count Olaf in the series. It also includes a release date at the end.
So if you’ve been desperately wondering when A Series of Unfortunate Events would be arriving on Netflix, do continue below and wonder no more.
Back in July of last year a different teaser trailer for the series was released. The teaser was later reported to be a fake and not from Netflix, which makes sense considering Netflix tends to release trailers a little closer to when the show will be released. That said, there are some who still believe it was not a fake despite Netflix’s claims otherwise.
Either way, this new trailer is definitely real and from Netflix. And with a release date now confirmed, it should not be long before we get a proper look at the show.
The world is vast and full of wonders. So on Friday, the 13th of January, please… watch something else.
