Lemony Snicket Renewed for Season 2 on Netflix

When the first season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events hit back in January, I had hoped for a family-friendly show that my wife and I could watch with the kids.  Unfortunately, the dark tone and off-beat humor of the show didn’t hold the attention of my wife and son, so I finished the season on my own.  Most of it I was familiar with, having seen the Jim Carrey flick several years ago, but this show was smarter, better, more in-depth.  You spend time with every character, and then the last episode of the four provides a new narrative to enjoy.

Overall, I really enjoyed it, even though it wasn’t what I had hoped for.  So I’m glad to hear that season 2 is on its way.

The announcement came in the form of a rube-goldberg machine-esque way.  It began with this video:

The video, if you’re paying attention, contains a hidden message which directs you to a website url.  If you visit said site, you will see the below image, which announces a season 2 pick-up in the hand of one Lemony Snicket.

No word yet on when season 2 will debut, but the smart money puts it on January 2018.
