It’s been a year since we saw for the first time Netflix’ adaptation of the classic book most of us read in our childhoods –A Series of Unfortunate Events– about the Baudelaire children, who were orphaned after their parents died in a tragic fire, as they go from new guardian to new guardian trying to escape from Count Olaf, who wants their inheritance.
Starring Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, and Presley Smith as the Baudelaire children and with Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf, season one of A Series of Unfortunate Events covered from book 1 to 4, while season 2 will be focussing on books 5 through 9, where they go from a boarding school to a fancy penthouse apartment, a vile village, and a few other depressing and short-lived homes.
Now, as 2018 is kicking off, Netflix has released a new teaser trailer for this series second season, where not only did we got the official release date for this second chapter, but also our first look at the show’s take on The Vile Village as we see the Baudelaire orphans being chased by a mob of angry villagers.

Back when season two was confirmed, executive producer Barry Sonnenfeld talked with EW about season 2’s tone being more darker and sadder with a little more action, while Neil Patrick Harris added:
“Now that we’re in season 2 — and I think the same is true with the books — now the Baudelaires can start to take some control and try and take more action. I think season 2 ends up being a little bigger in its scope and scale, but also allows for a little bit of a more fevered heartbeat from our protagonists.”
