Shriek as loud as you like, Lemony Snicket fans. A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 3 got the green light from Netflix, Variety and Deadline both report.

Author Daniel Handler (Mr. Snicket's real-life alias, also a writer/executive producer on the TV show) previously said the Neil Patrick Harris–starring adaptation's third season will cover the final four A Series of Unfortunate Events novels: The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril (what a title) and The End. Season 1, which premiered its eight episodes in January, covered the first four books; Season 2, running 10 episodes, will recreate the next five.

A Series of Unfortunate Events got its Season 2 renewal the day before its premiere. At the time, Handler told Entertainment Weekly:

"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."
