The cast list for "A Series of Unfortunate Events" has expanded as Netflix recently revealed new additions to the show. Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Lucy Punch, Roger Bart and Sara Rue have joined the second season. But one name -- Zachary Levi -- seems to have been missed out.

Fans noted Zachary Levi (“Chuck”) might be in the cast as the actor was spotted on the Vancouver set hanging out with the other stars.

Netflix, however, has not made any official announcements on Zachary Levi’s role or if he’s even involved in the first place. Fans could only go by a Twitter photo Patrick Burton, who plays Lemon Snicket, shared.

ASOUE official new cast announcements

Nathan Fillion ("Castle") will play the role of Jacques Snicket, the brother of Lemony Snicket.

His addition will reunite him with Neil Patrick Harris (Count Olaf) in “A Series of Unfortunate Events” as both worked together on "Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog" in 2008.

Fans of the book version, however, noted Jacques Snicket has a very short yet significant part in the story. It's likely his role in the TV adaptation will be expanded.

Tony Hale ("Arrested Development" and "Veep"), on the other hand, will play Jerome Squalor and Lucy Punch ("New Girl") will play his wife Esme Squalor. Sara Rue ("Mom') has been cast as an unnamed librarian while Roger Bart (“Desperate Housewives”) will play Vice Principal Nero.

ASOUE season 2 scope

According to director Barry Sonnenfeld, "A Series of Unfortunate Events" Season 2 will cover the five books of the best-selling children’s literature written by Daniel Handler.

"It will take us from the one I’m directing at the moment, which is 'Austere Academy,' all the way through to 'Carnivorous Carnival,' which is the ninth book," the director told Slash Film. The rest of the books include "Vile Village," "Hostile Hospital" and "Ersatz Elevator."

Production for season 2 has been underway for months in Vancouver, Canada but Barry Sonnenfeld has no idea when Netflix plans to launch the new episodes.

"A Series of Unfortunate Events" debuted on the streaming site in January 2017 and the first season covered the first four books -- “The Bad Beginning," "The Reptile Room," "The Wide Window" and "The Miserable Mill."

Netflix also doesn’t divulge the ratings or numbers for all of their shows but one third-party source claimed the show’s debut is the fourth most-watched series among the streaming site’s hundreds of programs.

The show also stars Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith as the Baudelaire orphan kids who have to learn to evade Count Olaf, who is after their inheritance.
