Look away! Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" has been renewed for a second season. The show, based on Lemony Snicket's book series of the same name, received critical acclaim when it premiered, eclipsing the lukewarm response to the 2004 film adaptation starring Jim Carrey.
Netflix celebrated the announcement by releasing a teaser for "A Series of Unfortunate Events" Season 2. The video featured a narration by Lemony Snicket, portrayed by Patrick Warburton in the series. The message highlights a couple of words and letters, which leads to the website Vastly Frightening Decision.
The page shows a letter from Snicket, written in a fashion typical to the writer, in which he expresses his horror at finding out how viewers have taken positive interest "of this unhappy and unnerving series" and "reputed enthusiasm for this grim example of so-called family programming."
According to Gizmodo, Daniel Handler, the writer known more popularly known as Lemony Snicket, revealed that it is like the next 10 episodes of "A Series of Unfortunate Events" Season 2 will cover five books.
"I am deep in season 2. I've been working in my own dining room with a team of writers I'm really loving on the next season, and we hope to get the go-ahead to do season 3, which... given how quickly young actors age and change, we're trying to film everything as quickly as possible," Handler said.
It is said that the next season would follow "The Austere Academy," "The Ersatz Elevator," "The Vile Village," "The Hostile Hospital" and "The Carnivorous Carnival."
Meanwhile, lead star Neil Patrick Harris, who stars as Count Olaf on the show, had his own way of celebrating the season 2 renewal of "A Series of Unfortunate Events." The actor got his first tattoo in the shape of the mystical eye that is the symbol and known marker of his evil character.
Harris previously told ET that it's quite a process for him to transform into Count Olaf. He revealed that it took at least nine hours of doing hair and makeup just for him to look like his onscreen counterpart.
