It’s now clear when the Unfortunate Events befalling the Baudelaire Orphans will finally end, thanks to Neil Patrick Harris.
After the first season, Netflix renewed A Series of Unfortunate Events for a second and third season. Since the first season covered the first four of Lemony Snicket’s 13 Baudelaire books, some fans assumed that three seasons would be enough to cover the rest of the series.
Producer Neil Patrick Harris (who plays Count Olaf) confirmed to TV Guide that this would be the case. “We’re three seasons all in,” he said. “We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”
In other words, the series will not be exploring further the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, and will instead end where Snicket intended, adapting the aptly named series-ender The End.
