Count Olaf Debuts “A Series of Unfortunate Events” Season 2 Sneak Peek, Plus First-Look Photos

On New Year’s Day, Count Olaf himself (Neil Patrick Harris) invaded screens of Netflix members to surprise fans the world over with a fourth-wall-breaking message, announcing the premiere date and presenting the first tease of footage from season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

In addition to the first-look footage, the streaming giant also released photos of the new season, all of which you can check out below.

Based on the internationally best selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), 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.

Executive produced by Emmy Award-winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler – the new season consists of ten cinematic one-hour episodes. 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, Sara Rue and Roger Bart.

Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events will be available to stream March 30 only on Netflix.
