‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events’ Season 2 Characters Are “Redonkulous,” According To Neil Patrick Harris — EXCLUSIVE
The tragic tale of three orphans, one evil guardian, and a never-ending series of unfortunate events is on its way back to Netflix. The aptly named A Series Of Unfortunate Events launches into its second season in 2018, with Neil Patrick Harris at the helm as the wicked Count Olaf. Harris is reprising his leading role, along with a range of new characters and disguises, in the series newest installment.
Elite Daily had the chance to speak with Harris at an event for his partnership with Cigna's preventive heath initiative about what fans can expect in the upcoming season.
Long-time fans of A Series Of Unfortunate Events have had nearly two decades worth of entertainment. The Netflix series comes after the film Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which stars Jim Carrey as Count Olaf. And both the Netflix series and the film are based on the 13 "A Series Of Unfortunate Events" children's books written by Daniel Handler (better known by his pen name, Lemony Snicket), which first hit shelves in 1999.
While we don't know much about Season 2 yet, Harris gave us a taste of what's going to happen:
In Season 1, fans witnessed Harris's incredible range as Count Olaf threw on different disguises in attempts to steal the Baudelaire kids' fortune. We saw him as Stefano, the bald-headed, long-bearded Italian, Captain Sham, the surly sea captain, and pink suit-wearing secretary, Shirley.
Elaborating on his "redonkulous" Season 2 characters, Harris plowed through his zany list of new disguises.
The end of Season 1 had show fans convinced a happy ending was on the horizon, with Mother and Father reuniting with the Baudelaire orphans. True to title, though, the first season was not wrapped up in a nice red bow. Those who know grew up reading the book series may have an idea of what to expect in Season 2, but Neil Patrick Harris promises there are surprises lurking for even the most dedicated fans.
Although it's frowned upon to look forward to the misfortune of others, we're counting down until Netflix releases the official premiere date of A Series Of Unfortunate Events Season 2.
