The first season of Netflix’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events was delightfully weird. If you dig the adaptation’s aesthetic, you’re in for a treat because the first Unfortunate Events Season 2 trailer promises more of the same. Arriving later this month, Unfortunate Events continues the misadventures of the surviving members of the Baudelaire family as they try to stay out of the clutches of the ever-present (and ever-poorly disguised) Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris). Watching NPH don one ridiculous getup after another is one of the simple delights of this show, but the remarkable core cast and the rotating roster of guest stars make each episode worth watching.
Season 2 is expected to continue this trend when it arrives on March 30th. The good news is that the Baudelaire siblings (Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith) will be getting some useful allies for once in this season, even as Olaf’s dastardly companions attempt to complicate their lives even more. Now’s a good time to get caught up on Season 1 if you want to figure out if LSASoUE is your speed.

Based on the internationally best selling series of books, season two of the Netflix original series plunges further into the epic world of this darkly comedic mystery. Starring Emmy and Tony Award-winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – and their extraordinary encounters with the devious Count Olaf who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. Foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death, links to a covert organization, and begin to unlock long-held family secrets.
Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman (among others) return for season two. New additions to the cast include (but are not limited to) Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Robbie Amell, Sara Rue, Roger Bart and David Alan Grier. Featuring ten cinematic one-hour episodes, season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events launches globally Friday, March 30 on Netflix.
