"So dive on in, distract yourself with this first look at season 2 of A Series of Unfortunate Events", he states in the trailer.

Count Olaf is here to help you celebrate the New Year. Based on the internationally best selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), season two of the Netflix original series plunges further into the epic world of this darkly comedic mystery.

Perhaps, Netflix is hoping to keep this quiet, as it's hardly a hugely exciting look at the new season.

A Series of Unfortunate Events is returning to Netflix with a second season on March 30, the show revealed in the above teaser, which took fans a little bit of sleuthing to find in the first place. Season one covered the first four books in the 13 novel series, where Count Olaf becomes the guardian of three orphaned children, Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny Baudelaire (Presley Smith).

Neil Patrick Harris, four-time Primetime Emmy award victor, returns as Count Olaf himself, with Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement) as narrator Lemony Snicket, while Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes and Presley Smith are the three child heirs to the Baudelaire inheritance.

The second season will cover the fifth through ninth books in the series as the Baudelaire kids move from a boarding house to a penthouse apartment and a lot of other homes in between. "Because that's the effect I was going for", says Olaf as we see a shot of the orphans falling down an elevator shaft.

Watch the new teaser on Netflix.
