Netflix has just given us a first look at season two of A Series Of Unfortunate Events on the first day of 2018, and it looks just as good as you'd expect from the show. It's based on the series of books by Daniel Handler (as Lemony Snicket) and is executive produced by Handler and Barry Sonnenfeld. Though Neil Patrick Harris chews as much of the scenery as Carrey did, the Netflix series has a greater grasp on the wry, pointed humor of the books, as well as the a greater investment in the perspective of the three children, played by Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith.

The second season of the popular Netflix original series will expand the world of the dark-comedy, bringing back your favorite actors. "Now there may be some of you who are surprised that Netflix would choose this to be the first face you see in 2018", he says.

As the villain sharpens two enormous knives, he introduces the very first footage from Season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents' mysterious death.

Videos spread on social media of demonstrations in several towns and cities including Kermanshah, Khorramabad and Shahinshahr. President Donald Trump denounced the Iranian government Saturday, tweeting excerpts from his September 19 speech to the U.N.

It's early in the new year but not soon enough for A Series of Unfortunate Events. Joining them and Harris's Olaf this season are Castle alum Nathan Fillion, Veep's Tony Hale, Sara Rue (Impastor), Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher), and Roger Bart (Desperate Housewives).

The first look trailer comes after Netflix released a batch of photographs from the new season.

Known to many as a dramatic series of novels for youngsters, before it made its way to the big screen and then just past year Netflix as an original TV series, "A Series of Unfortunate Events" tells one of the wackiest stories to have dropped in the modern day. This second season is expected to do the next five and an eventual third season would finish out the adaptations.
