Season 3 of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events will be based on books ten through thirteen (The Slippery Slope, The Grim GrottoThe Penultimate Peril, and The End) of the original book series.

Netflix officially announced the development of season 3 on April 4, 2017.[1]

Season 3 has been confirmed to release January 1st, 2019. A video to announce this was released on November 13th, 2018.

It will contain 7 episodes instead of 8 since The End will be adapted into one long episode instead of two.[2]

Season 3 will be the end of the TV series, due to The End being the final 13th book.


Below is a list of characters who are expected to appear if the series accurately follows the books.

On May 19, 2017, the writer's room finished scripts for season 3.[4] This writer's room included Handler himself, Aziza Aba Butain, Joshua Conkel, Sigrid Gilmer and Joe Tracz.[4]

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


Barry Sonnenfeld returned to help with direction, although the extent of his input remains unclear.

He mentions that The End will be one long episode instead of two as he felt there's not enough material in the book. He intends it to be profoundly emotional, perhaps more than the book was.[5]


Season 3 was filmed concurrent with the previous season. Filming began on April 13, 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.[6] The crew took a two-month hiatus between November 2, 2017 and January 2, 2018.[7] Filming was scheduled to wrap up on May 8, 2018.[8] However, there was a little overtime and it wrapped up on May 11.
