Netflix has picked up A Series of Unfortunate Events for a third season less than a month after a second season renewal.
The series starring and produced by Neil Patrick Harris is based on the best-selling books by Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler). He plays Count Olaf, the evil guardian of the Baudelaire orphans who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The first season covers four of the 13 novels in Handler’s book series.
The fictional Snicket (Patrick Warburton) recently warned, “…despite my repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work, known collectively as Lemony Snicket’s 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.'”
The news comes just days after it was announced that Harris will host and executive produce a new game show called Genius Junior for NBC.
