Based on the book series by Lemony Snicket, the show follows the three Baudelaire orphans, who are sent to live with their eccentric relative Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) after their parents die. The cast also includes Patrick Warburton, Catherine O’Hara, Aasif Mandvi, Alfre Woodard, Joan Cusack, Malina Weissman, and Louis Hynes. Season one debuted on January 13th.
Though Netflix doesn’t release ratings, Symphony Advanced Media reports A Series of Unfortunate Events was viewed by 3.755 million adults 18-49 during its opening weekend. That places the original series behind Fuller House, Orange is the New Black, and Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life in terms of rankings.
The streaming platform has not officially renewed the show for a second season, but it seems likely. Recently, EP Barry Sonnenfeld said season two is already being written.
