Oh, Dear! There’s a Second Lemony Snicket Trailer!


Despite their best intentions, Netflix has been unable to keep themselves from foisting a second trailer for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Incidents upon us.

Under no circumstance should you follow the jump to view it. That would be bad. Thank you.

And if you’re still here, please note that you will not want to stream said unpleasant series when Netflix releases it into the wild (where it belongs) on that most unlucky of days, Friday the 13th of January, 2017.

If you are interested in a story with a happy ending, that story is streaming elsewhere. This story has no happy ending, no happy beginning, and very few happy things in the middle.

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and premieres January 13, 2017 only on Netflix. A Netflix Original Series.
