The most unfortunate thing about Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation is the painfully long hiatus that the series has had since its first season premiered in January 2017. But fret not, Baudelaire fans. The undaunted child genius heroes are back for season 2, more than year later.

A new teaser reveals the first footage from the second season, as well as a look at Count Olaf’s increasingly colorful costumes. The children may be filled with dread at seeing Neil Patrick Harris‘ Olaf again, but that is the opposite reaction most of us will have to seeing this teaser.

A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2

The practice of beloved TV or movie properties getting a second life has practically become synonymous with Netflix — the streaming service made its name as an original content service by tapping into the nostalgia of popular properties like Arrested Development and Full House.

But it’s rare that Netflix will take a chance on a moderately successful movie adaptation that was met with mixed reception, and outright disdain from fans of the books. But A Series of Unfortunate Events came to Netflix, where it was spearheaded by Barry Sonnenfeld, the director originally attached to the 2004 movie. And it was a hit. The series met with rave reviews from critics and fans alike, who lauded its unique visuals, fourth-wall-breaking characters. and witty black comedy. A Series of Unfortunate Events was quite a fortunate break for Netflix.

It was too for Sonnenfeld, who was able to finally bring his vision for an adaptation to life alongside the books’ author, Daniel Handler (whose pseudonym, Lemony Snicket, is also an active character in the series). We spoke with Sonnenfeld about the runaway success of the first season of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and what we can expect for the second and now-confirmed third.

A Series of Unfortunate Events Comparison Video

In case you haven’t heard, the first season of Netflix’s series adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is available right now. It sounds like it’s a much more loyal adaptation of the book series by Daniel Handler, one that can properly expand the mythology and character roster without being condensed into a limited window.

But how does the series adaptation compare to the original film adaptation directed by Brad Silbering and starring Jim Carrey as Count Olaf, as well as a younger Emily Browning and Liam Aiken? One fan decided to put together an extensive video comparing the two different adaptations and how they handle the same events from the book series.

Watch the A Series of Unfortunate Events comparison video after the jump, and obviously beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen either the movie or the series. Read More »

a series of unfortunate events

I’ve been watching Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, but I refuse to binge it. Instead, I’ve been taking my sweet time, revisiting Daniel Handler’s books between each episode and reminding myself that the source material is kind of remarkable. As someone who grew reading Roald Dahl and Douglas Adams, the pitch dark comedy, witty prose, and resistance to easy pleasantries sing to me in a special way – they’re the kind of stories that make me wish I had children so I could read these books to them and warp their fragile little minds.

The show is good, too! And really, I’m using this newly arrived featurette as an excuse to talk about the show itself for a moment.
