Netflix Announces A Series Of Unfortunate Events Season 2 With A Note From Lemony Snicket

Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is getting a second season. This was confirmed today in a note written by the fictional character Lemony Snicket and published on this viral marketing site.

“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,” Snicket wrote. “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.'”

The note goes on: “To my horror, Netflix has been encouraged by this, and funneled their ill-gotten gains toward a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series.”

You can read the full note below. No date has been set for the Season 2 premiere, nor do we know anything about the plot or potential new cast members.

The first season of A Series of Unfortunate Events premiered in January behind a lot of praise, including high marks from GameSpot. Netflix does not disclose viewership numbers for any of its shows.

A Series of Unfortunate Events stars Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) as Count Olaf and Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld) as Lemony Snicket.

Lemony Snicket’s Note:

As transcribed by Variety

Dear Viewer,

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 toward a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series. Even as we speak, set buildings, 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 so-called family programming.

I hope you’re happy. Because you won’t be, ever again.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket
