A Series of Unfortunate Events, Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf


Get ready to look awaaaaayyyy, looook away one last time.

The Baudelaire orphans take on Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) for a final face-off in "A Series of Unfortunate Events" Season 3.

Season 3 adapts the final four books in Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler's series -- "The Slippery Slope, "The Grim Grotto," "The Penultimate Peril," and "The End."

The Netflix series, which has no release date at this point, just shared some first look photos with Entertainment Weekly.

The show's Twitter account teased the reveal in classic form:

Showrunner Barry Sonnenfeld told EW this is "the most emotional season yet" for Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), Sunny (Presley Smith), and company.

"It’s got a lot of action, and the kids have become much more proactive and less victims."

He also said they expanded on the end of "The End," since many fans (my hand is up) were disappointed by the resolution of the book series.

"When you see ‘The End’, you’ll think that it’s what Daniel always had in mind, though it’s not. “It wraps up in such a strong way that you may think we came up with the idea at the beginning of the first season."

EW's first photos show more of Allison Williams as Kit Snicket, sister of Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton).

"She plays a bigger role in the show than she did in the books,” Sonnenfeld said, adding that he cast Williams as Kit after running into her in a British Airways lounge a year ago. “I just looked at her and I thought, ‘She’s Kit!’ She’s sporty, she’s smart, she’s sassy, she’s self-confident, and she’s beautiful, which are all the attributes Kit has."

There you go, aspiring actresses -- hang out in the British Airways lounge more often!

Of course, we'll also see more of Count Olaf and his partner in crime Esmé Squalor (Lucy Punch). In Season 3, they take in the incredibly irritating Carmelita Spats (Kitana Turnbull), "who insists on dressing like a tap-dancing fairy veterinarian," as you can see in one photo below.

Sonnenfeld said Count Olaf is "scarier, a little more unhinged, a little bit harder to reason with" this season. But when was he ever easy to reason with?

Season 1 had eight episodes, released on Netflix in January 2017. Season 2 had 10 episodes, dropped March 2018. Season 3 is meant to have seven episodes, coming at some point in 2019.
