It’s being reported that Netflix has ordered a season three for their adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
If that sounds strange and unexpected to you, you’re not alone. This is because season one of the show was released on Netflix in January, and season two was officially ordered by Netflix less than a month ago.
Unlike season two, which Netflix announced with a video and a note, it’s TV Line reporting that the streaming service also quietly ordered a third season. A spokesperson for Netflix did not comment on the report.
The thinking is all 13 books in the series will be covered in three seasons of A Series of Unfortunate Events, with two episodes dedicated to each book.
Lemony Snicket responded to the second season being ordered with disapproval, penning this letter:
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,
One can only imaging how Snicket is feeling with news of a third season.
