A Series of Unfortunate Events is undoubtedly one of the most off-beat and interesting shows on Netflix. The first season of the show, which revolves around the tragic tale of three orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire — who are investigating their parents' mysterious death, concluded in January, 2017. Now, after almost a year, Netflix has released the trailer for the second season.

It is clear from the new trailer that the villainous Count Olaf, played by Neil Patrick Harris, is still on his never-ending quest to get his hands on the Baudelaire orphans’ inheritance and make their lives as miserable as possible. The new season will also feature 10 episodes, each an hour long in length, and will start streaming on 30 March.

The Netflix show is based on a series of children's books written by Lemony Snicket, and takes viewers through the epic Unfortunate universe of dark comedic mystery. In the second season, Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny (Presley Smith) try to dodge Olaf’s many wicked plans as they discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death, links to a covert organization, and begin to unlock long-held family secrets.

Neil Patrick Harris had earlier confirmed that season 3 will be the last for Unfortunate Events. Netflix had already renewed the series for seasons 2 and 3. The first season covered the first four of Lemony Snicket’s 13 Baudelaire books, and the next two seasons will cover the rest.

The upcoming season stars some familiar faces such as Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman. Some new faces have also joined the show including Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Robbie Amell, Sara Rue, Roger Bart, and David Alan Grier. You can watch the trailer below.
