Netflix has revealed the first stills from A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2, and is teasing a release date time frame.
The next season of A Series of Unfortunate Events will cover Books 5 – 9 in Lemony Snicket’s wicked series. The photos depict Count Olaf’s Günther disguise as well as the Baudelaire’s heading to boarding school and encountering their “unbearable” new classmate Carmelita Spats.
New cast members joining A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2 include Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue and Roger Bart. As for the release date, at the moment Netflix is only saying that new episodes will be out in “Spring 2018”. For what it’s worth, season 1 was released in January 2017.
In a new interview with EW today, executive producer Barry Sonnenfeld says that “tonally, we have more action, and things are little darker and sadder.”
“Now that we’re in season 2 — and I think the same is true with the books — now the Baudelaires can start to take some control and try and take more action,” adds Olaf actor Neil Patrick Harris. “I think season 2 ends up being a little bigger in its scope and scale, but also allows for a little bit of a more fevered heartbeat from our protagonists.”
