Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) is not messing around in A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2.
“This time, I have no mercy,” vows Olaf, to the Baudelaire orphans, in the new season 2 trailer, which Netflix just released. “I won’t be satisfied with just your fortune. I will obliterate you in the cruelest way possible!”
Honestly, that just sounds like the normal Tuesday for Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), and Sunny (Presley Smith) Baudelaire. In case you forgot, Netflix’s adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s mischievous book series follows the Baudelaires as they suffer misfortune after misfortune, usually at the hands of Count Olaf, a man who is determined to get his hands on their wealth. As the new season 2 trailer reveals, their lives aren’t going to get any better this season.
In the trailer, which you can watch above, Olaf continues to pursue the Baudelaires as they move from new home to new home: an Austere boarding school, a stylish penthouse apartment, a Vile Village, an unwelcoming hospital, and a dangerous carnival (the season covers books 5 through 9). Along the way, they encounter the Quagmires, another couple of orphans whose recently deceased parents are connected to the same VFD mystery as the Baudelaires’ parents. Nevertheless, our heroes can’t seem to escape adversity this season.
“This episode in the lives of the Baudelaires is about to get much, much worse,” says Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton) at the end of the promo.
