The wait for the second season of the Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events is almost over. The series stars Neil Patrick Harris as the villainous Count Olaf and hits the streaming service on March 30, which is conveniently Easter weekend so the perfect time for a binge session.
In this new teaser trailer, we see that life for the Baudelaire children will only get worse when they realise that they can’t escape Count Olaf and his army of evil sidekicks and their mission to destroy them. Harris as Count Olaf tells the audience in the teaser “There’s more villainous treachery, more treacherous villains, angry villagers, unwanted elective surgeries, man-eating lions, more violence, fire, and despair — which will really be quite dreadful”
The trailer also gives us our first look at new guest stars including Roger Bart and Lucy Punch, as well as reintroducing us to some familiar faces.
The second season, which will be followed by a third and final season, covers five books from the Lemony Snicket series; The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, The Vile Village, The Hostile Hospital, and The Carnivorous Carnival.
We loved the first season and we can’t wait for the second season, and if the trailers are anything to by we are in for another epic season, and in the words of Count Olaf “I can’t wait!” And I can’t wait to hear the new songs that Count Olaf will sing because no matter what he looks like, any opportunity to listen to Neil Patrick Harris sing is never one to be wasted.
A Series of Unfortunate Events will be available on Netflix from March 30.
