WATCH: No happy endings in ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’
Netflix has spilled the second trailer for “A Series of Unfortunate Events” to rejuvenate everyone’s creepy vibes for Friday the 13th.
Starring “How I Met Your Mother” actor Neil Patrick Harris, the trailer features Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and an infant Sunny Baudelaire as they cope up with a horrible life after their parents died of an arson attack. Count Olaf (Harris), the series’ antagonist, never quits in haunting the children’s lives even though they transfer from one relative to another.
The series, based on Daniel Handler’s bestselling children’s novel streak, will be narrated by Lemony Snicket, played by Patrick Warburton. In the first trailer released in October, Snicket gave a “sneak peek” of the Baudelaire children’s miserable yet interesting struggles. “The story of the Baudelaire orphans is so upsetting and so utterly unnerving, and the cast and crew of the show are suffering from low morale, a word which here means, under medical observation for melancholia, ennui, and acute wistfulness,” he said.
Entertainment Weekly reported that some of the trailer’s scenes were drawn from the series’ fourth novel, “The Miserable Mill.”
