Series star and producer for the show A Series of Unfortunate Events Neil Patrick Harris (Count Olaf) announced that season three of the series will be the last season. This confirms the rumors about the last season being the ending for the show. Also, a three season plan was what Netflix had in mind for the show. Netflix also renewed the third season before the second has even aired.
There are thirteen books written for the series. Season one of the show covered the first four novels, season two (which is set to premiere March 30th) then will cover five through nine, and season three is covering ten through thirteen.
Harris said, “We’re three seasons all in. We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”
The Netflix show is based off of the internationally best selling series: Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. The orphans Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith) lose their parents in a fire. Count Olaf becomes their parental guardian, and his main goal is to steal their inheritance.
Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres March 30 on Netflix. The first season of the show can be streamed on Netflix.
