Get ready for Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events: The Series

November 6th, 2014 by Marc Comments

As a fan of the original books, the movie of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events was a lot of fun but disappointing that the story was never picked up for sequels. But now it looks like the story will be completed onscreen. Well, the small screen anyway.

It seems that Lemony Snicket – real name Daniel Handler – will see his successful book series picked up by Netflix.

The books spanned 13 altogether – appropriately enough – so the series could potentially run a while.

Cindy Holland, VP Original Content at Netflix said: “On the search for fantastic material that appeals to both parents and kids, the first stop for generations of readers is ‘A Series Of Unfortunate Events. The world created by Lemony Snicket is unique, darkly funny and relatable. We can’t wait to bring it to life for Netflix members.”

Well, we’ll be watching this develop with great interest…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
