Season 2 of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events will be released all at once on March 30, 2018.[1]

It consists of ten episodes covering books five through nine of the book series: The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator, The Vile Village, The Hostile Hospital and The Carnivorous Carnival.[2]




Guest actors




At least both Daniel Handler[2][15], Rose Lam[16] and Barry Sonnenfeld[9][17] will continue to be involved in the show as executive producers.


In January 2017, Daniel Handler reported "working [on season 2] in [his] own dining room with a team of writers [he's] really loving".[2] This writer's room included Handler himself, Aziza Aba Butain, Joshua Conkel, Sigrid Gilmer and Joe Tracz.[18] According to Barry Sonnenfeld in an interview around the same time, scripts were already being written.[17] On May 19th, 2017, the writer's room were done, all the way to The End, including scripts for season 3.[18]

It can be reasonably assumed that some episodes of this season, as was with season 1, will be penned by Handler himself.


Barry Sonnenfeld will continue to direct some of the episodes this season.[16][17][11]


The series was renewed for a second season on March 13, 2017. Filming for season 2 began on April 13.[11][19] The series is produced in Vancouver by Olaf II Productions Inc.[16]

Filming on The Austere Academy wrapped up on May 17.[8]

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."[15] "[G]iven how quickly young actors age and change, we're trying to film everything as quickly as possible."[2]
