Netflix's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' Renewed for Season 2

With the intriguing A Series of Unfortunate Events coming to Netflix tomorrow, Entertainment Weekly tracked down the fictional author Lemony Snicket's real-life creator and voice, Daniel Handler, for a chat. In said chat, it was confirmed that Unfortunate Events has been renewed; Season 2 is official.

Asked what he's up to next, Handler, who published the novel series from 1999 to 2006, answered:

"I am deep in Season 2. I’ve been working in my own dining room with a team of writers I’m really loving on the next season, and we hope to get the go-ahead to do Season 3, which...given how quickly young actors age and change, we’re trying to film everything as quickly as possible. The second season is laid out to be 10 episodes for the next five books, so it ends on The Carnivorous Carnival, and the third season would be the rest of it."
