In January 2017, Daniel Handler reported "working [on season 2] in [his] own dining room with a team of writers [he's] really loving". According to Barry Sonnenfeld in an interview around the same time, scripts were already being written.
It can be reasonably assumed that some episodes of this season, as was with season 1, will be penned by Handler himself.
The series was renewed for a second season on March 13, 2017. According to the DGC-BC production list, season 2 will begin production on April 17, 2017. The series is produced in Vancouver by Olaf II Productions Inc.
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."
