Count Olaf is still at it—but in 2019, the unfortunate events will come to an end.

Netflix just released a cheeky little video to announce that the third, and final, season of A Series of Unfortunate Events will premiere on January 1, 2019. Check it out.

Though the video doesn’t have any new footage beyond its framing narration, a Netflix press release teases this about the third season: “After foiling [Olaf’s] many dastardly plans and disguises, the [Baudelaire orphans] might finally discover the truth about their parents’ mysterious death, while unraveling the layers of a clandestine organization, and revealing the secrets of the coveted, missing sugar bowl.”

That’s music to the ears of Lemony Snicket fans who have been with the show since its inception.

DISCUSSION

I’m at once eager and hesitant. It’s a good, funny show, but it’s not afraid to go really dark and have some genuinely painful, tragic things happen amidst the absurdism. I can’t wait to see more, but at the same time I’m afraid to find out how much more horrible things can get for the Baudelaires and every decent person in their orbit. Which is probably exactly what Daniel Handler and Barry Sonnenfeld were aiming for.
