A Series of Unfortunate Events has officially been booked for season 2, and Netflix decided to make the announcement by teaming up with author Lemony Snicket for a fun little riddle.
A new video narrated by Patrick Warburton (who plays Lemony in the series) clues you into a domain you should visit:
Upon visiting VastlyFrighteningDecision.com, the URL that’s highlighted in the video above, you’re greeted by a letter from author Lemony Snicket:
“Despite my repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work,” Snicket writes. “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 my so-called family programming.”
“I hope you’re happy. because you won’t be, ever again.”
Star Neil Patrick Harris got a tattoo to celebrate the news:
An air date for A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2 wasn’t announced today, but we expect it sometime in early 2018. It will likely cover the next three books in Snicket’s series: The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, and The Vile Village.
