Evil Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) will return in “A Series of Unfortunate Events” Season 3. Netflix

“A Series of Unfortunate Events” was recently renewed by Netflix for a third season.

According to TV Line, the streaming site just confirmed its decision to pick up the series for a second season a few weeks ago. Last month, the Season 2 renewal was announced through a letter written by one of the characters from the series, Lemony Snicket, played by Patrick Warburton.

“It has come to my attention that, despite the repeated warnings, you have viewed the Netflix adaptation of my distressing work, collectively known as ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events.’ 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,” the renewal announcement read.

The first season of “A Series of Unfortunate Events” was based on the popular book series of the same name. It consisted of eight episodes, which were released in January. The series follows the story of “How I Met Your Mother” alum Neil Patrick Harris’ character, evil Count Olaf, who schemed to get the fortune that the Baudelaire orphans inherited when their parents passed away, according to TV Guide.

Other cast members include Malina Weissman as Violet, Joan Cusack as Justice, Aasif Mandvi as Uncle Monty, K. Todd Freeman as Arthur, Usman Ally as Fernald, Luke Camilleri as Gustav, Mary Black as Sweet Old Lady, Matthew Cardarople as Person of Indeterminate Gender and more.

Meanwhile, the third season renewal of “A Series of Unfortunate Events” ensures that the TV adaptation will be able to tackle all the major storylines featured in the books. As of late, it is still unclear when the new episodes will be available because the official release date for Season 2 has not yet been confirmed.
