Avert your eyes unless you wish to see something truly horrible and devastating: Netflix has unveiled the trailer for the third and final season of “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” which comes out on Jan. 1, 2019.
In the preview, which should only be watched by those who for some reason want to witness something incredibly unpleasant, the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny — finally meet their (literal) maker, Lemony Snicket. Along the way, the trio will run into a bunch of familiar faces, a number of which we guess definitely aren’t dead.
Has this whole show been one long and unfortunate training session to turn the Baudelaire’s into proper and prepared V.F.D. volunteers? We’ll find out pretty shortly.
Watch the trailer above. Below is Netflix’s description.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (real name Daniel Handler), “A Series of Unfortunate Events” stars Neil Patrick Harris and recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans and their devious uncle Count Olaf (Harris), who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. After foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings might finally discover the truth about their parents’ mysterious death, while unraveling the layers of a clandestine organization, and revealing the secrets of the coveted, missing sugar bowl.
The series is executive produced by Barry Sonnenfeld, Rose Lam, Daniel Handler and Harris. In addition to the “How I Met Your Mother” alum, the show also stars Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton, and K. Todd Freeman. New additions to the cast include Allison Williams and Max Greenfield. Lucy Punch, Tony Hale, Roger Bart and Robbie Amell will return for Season 3 as guests.
