a series of unfortunate events s2 teaser

The second series of 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' will air on Netflix on 30th March, the streaming service has announced.

Netflix also released a teaser trailer for the show.

The series is based on Daniel Handler's 13-book series of the same name. It follows three orphaned siblings as they try to work out the secret behind their parents' death and involvement in a secret society. Meanwhile, they'll have to evade the criminal Count Olaf (played by Neil Patrick Harris).

It's written by Handler and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld.

Imitating Handler's writing style, Netflix tweeted a convoluted link to the teaser in the form of a poem.

The first season comprised eight episodes, which broke the first four books into two one-hour sections each. This series is thought to follow the same format.

The trailer includes sections of the fifth, sixth and seventh books in the series: namely 'The Austere Academy', 'The Ersatz Elevator' and 'The Vile Village', respectively.
