The third season of Netflix’s adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS will be its last, according to star and executive producer Neil Patrick Harris.
“We’re three seasons all in,” Harris told TV Guide. “We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”
The series stars Harris as Count Olaf — a role played by Jim Carrey in the 2004 movie — who is trying to get his hands on the inheritance coming to three orphans named Violet, Klaus and Sunny.
The series is executive produced by Daniel Handler and Barry Sonnenfeld, who have written and directed many episodes of the show, respectively.
The series also stars Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman from Season 1 as well as new cast members Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue and Roger Bart.
Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events will premiere on March 30 on Netflix. The show was given an official Season 3 renewal nearly a year ago, just a month after the streaming network said yes to a second season.
