WATCH: Trailer for A Series of Unfortunate Events final season

Netflix has released the first trailer and the release date for the final season of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

A Series of Unfortunate Events S3New Year’s Day is going to be a “Very Fateful Date” indeed because we will be watching as Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire continue to thwart the schemes of the dastardly Count Olaf on January 1, 2019.

The second season ended on a literal cliffhanger. This third season will feature adaptations of the last four books in the series, The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, and The End. This will effectively wrap up the sorrowful saga of the Baudelaire orphans and hopefully reveal some answers to the fascinating secrets they had started to uncover.

The first trailer features Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) and Count Olaf (played by Neil Patrick Harris) standing in front of the Hotel Denouement (book fans will appreciate the significance of this venue), both recapping the events of the last two seasons (showcasing some of Olaf’s most memorable disguises) with starkly contrasting perspectives and assuring the viewers (or Count Olaf fans) that “we are almost at the end.”

A Series of Unfortunate Events S3Here is the official synopsis of the series:

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), the third and final season of the Peabody award-winning Netflix original premieres worldwide January 1, 2019.
