Season 2 of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events will be based on books five through nine of the original book series. Daniel Handler explained in 2017 that "[t]he second season is laid out to be 10 episodes for the next five books, so it ends on The Carnivorous Carnival, and the third season would be the rest of it."
In May, Barry Sonnenfeld said we can expect season 2 to come out "sometime in the first quarter of 2018". "It won't be before that but we're still trying to figure that out based on post-production and some other issues that we got to make sure we can deliver on time."
Though, according to Sonnenfeld, Netflix has not yet officially commissioned season 3, the writer's room nevertheless finished the scripts on that series on May 19th, ending, of course, with The End.

In January 2017, Daniel Handler reported "working [on season 2] in [his] own dining room with a team of writers [he's] really loving". This writer's room included Handler himself, Aziza Aba Butain, Joshua Conkel, Sigrid Gilmer and Joe Tracz. According to Barry Sonnenfeld in an interview around the same time, scripts were already being written. On May 19th, 2017, the writer's room were done, all the way to The End, including scripts for season 3.
It can be reasonably assumed that some episodes of this season, as was with season 1, will be penned by Handler himself.
Filming on The Austere Academy wrapped up on May 17th.
Daniel Handler says he hopes Netflix gives them the go-ahead to film season 2 back-to-back with season 3. "Our dream is to film season 3 right after season 2; we’re still working that out with Netflix. We couldn’t have filmed all three seasons in a row... but we’re hoping that with the reception the show has been getting, we can film those seasons so that at the end of the series, the Baudelaires aren’t in their 30s and we’re wondering why they’re still worried about their guardians." "[G]iven how quickly young actors age and change, we’re trying to film everything as quickly as possible."
