Will your kids be watching A Series of Unfortunate Events? Will you?

Lemony Snicket’s days were numbered when the Series of Unfortunate Events came into my house during my son’s younger days. He got bored about halfway through the books. Netflix is banking on young fans sticking with Klaus and Violet when the adaptation of Daniel Handler’s book series debuts on January 13th.

Netflix has released a new trailer and a slew of new images. I’m talking slew! Neil Patrick Harris fans will recognize the changeable Count Olaf. Patrick Warburton is Lemony Snicket. The cast includes Catherine O'Hara, Alfre Woodard and Joan Cusack but I dunno. It looks a little silly to me.

 About the series

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death. The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire).’’
