Netflix has announced today that they are renewing A Series of Unfortunate Events after the impressive amount of streams it received for the first 8 episodes.

The first series covered the first four novels by Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler), after binging the series for the best part of a week, viewers are incredibly pleased it has been commissioned for another series.

The details of the release are on the aptly named website ‘vastlyfrighteningdecision‘, Snicket released a statement to the press saying “To my horror, Netflix has been encouraged by this, and funnelled their ill-gotten gains towards a second season of this unhappy and unnerving series. Even as we speak, set builders, costume designers and trauma specialists are snapping into action, the better to bring you even more upsetting episodes, all because of your reputed enthusiasm for this grim example of so-called family programming…”

I guess it’s a waiting game now until we get to see Count Olaf and the Baudelaire’s again, and we will be sure to not ‘look away’.
