Netflix premiered "A Series of Unfortunate Events" in January with a first season, consisting of eight episodes. The season was adapted from the first four books of the series: "The Bad Beginning," "The Reptile Room," "The Wide Window," and "The Miserable Mill." The books are written under the name Lemony Snicket, a pen name for author Daniel Handler. The series was renewed for a second season of ten episodes, with the third season ordered not long after.

"A Series of Unfortunate Events" stars Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, Patrick Warburton as narrator Lemony Snicket, K. Todd Freeman as Mr. Poe, with Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith as the three Baudelaire children. The series was adapted by Barry Sonnenfeld, with Handler involved as a writer.

New guest stars for the second season

Netflix announced the second season of "A Series of Unfortunate Events" will feature several new faces: Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue, Lucy Punch, and Rodger Bart.

Fillion is said to be playing the brother to Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton). Fans are excited for a reunion to take place between Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris who worked together in Joss Whedon's "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." No information has been given regarding the characters the other actors will be playing.

Fans are speculating what other characters from the books will appear, specifically Esme Squalor, who was introduced in book six, "The Ersatz Elevator." The character is a stylish antagonist, at one point a guardian to the three children, and an ally to Count Olaf.

Nothing has been confirmed about if this character will appear, but fans have pointed out several clues in the first season that could point to Esme. The biggest clue being a figure seen wearing a feathered hat and white gloves, similar to the style choices of the character.

The books will be divided between seasons 2 and 3

Daniel Handler shared recently that he's deep in writing for season two, expressing that with how quickly young actors age they're trying to get everything filmed as soon as possible.

Not much is known about what to expect from the new season, or what will be changing from the books, but Season two will consist of books five through nine, while season three will feature the last four books.

Handler has also shared that the season will end with the book "The Carnivorous Carnival," which he believes will provide a scary ending. Season one ended with the three Baudelaire children leaving with a mysterious new guardian, which will be resolved when the series returns.

The children will also discover a link to a big secret, as well as deal with an array of new unreasonable people, including a bully named Carmelita Spats.
