A cryptic video has been released by Netflix called “A Miserable Message,” which holds a hidden secret regarding their show A Series of Unfortunate Events.
When you decipher the not so tricky puzzle, it leads you to a note from the author of the books the series is based on himself, Lemony Snicket, who reveals that Netflix has officially ordered a season two.
You can read the note and check out the video below.
Here’s the note from Snicket, who is also a character on the show played by Patrick Warburton:
It has come to my attention that, despite my repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work, known collectively as A Series of Unfortunate Events. Some of you have even binged, a word which here means, “Watched several episodes right in a row, despite having much better things to do with your time.”
To my horror, Netflix has been encouraged by this, and funneled their ill-gotten gains towards a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series. Even as we speak, set builders, costume designers and trauma specialists are snapping into action, the better to bring you even more upsetting episodes, all because of your reputed enthusiasm for this grim example of so-called family programming.
I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.
With all due respect,

Are you clever enough to determine the hidden message within this warning? If you are, you may soon wish you were not.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler.
