Watch the Full Trailer for A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2

A Series of Unfortunate Events BaudelairesThe full trailer for the upcoming season of A Series of Unfortunate Events has been released, showing more of the sorrows and struggles of the Baudelaire orphans.

Two teasers had been previously released, featuring the commentary from Count Olaf, the villain of the piece, gleefully portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris. This trailer begins with Mr. Poe (played by K. Todd Freeman), who summarizes the events of the first season and then more scenes of the new season are shown, as well as the new characters.

The second season will adapt the next five books of the series, namely The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, The Vile Village, The Hostile Hospital, and The Carnivorous Carnival. We are shown the different, colorful locations of these novels and the three Baudelaires’ new friends and foes, such as:

  • Vice Principal Nero (played by Roger Bart), the tyrannical, violin-playing official from the Prufrock Preparatory School
  • Esme Squalor (played by Lucy Punch), the trend-obsessed wife of Jerome and a potential ally of Count Olaf
  • Jerome Squalor (played by Tony Hale), the timid husband of Esme and one of the Baudelaires’ new guardians
  • Jacques Snicket (played by Nathan Fillion), brother of Lemony (the author and narrator played by Patrick Warburton)
  • The Quagmire twins, Isadora and Duncan, who lost their parents in a fire last season
  • A Series of Unfortunate Events Count OlafAnd of course, Count Olaf himself, in his many disguises.

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are shown fleeing various dodgy situations and facing untold dangers (and yes, that was Sunny driving a truck!) Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their fortune and to make their lives as miserable as possible.

But the Baudelaires are clever, crafty, and courageous (Violet is shown putting together some useful inventions while Klaus does more research on the mysterious VFD), so they will manage to escape every rough situation. But, as the trailer assures us, things are about to get much, much worse.

If you can’t avert your eyes, don’t miss the misery of A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2 on March 30 on Netflix.
