Last year, Netflix released the first season of its adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. The show was well received upon its debut and many fans praised Neil Patrick Harris’ portrayal of the evil Count Olaf. The second season was released earlier this year in March and the third and final series is set to be released next year.
Neil Patrick Harris has revealed that the final series has finished filming and stated on Twitter that he’ll miss playing the wildly eccentric Count. “Can’t believe that tomorrow is my last day as Count Olaf,” he wrote. “For over two years I’ve gotten to play in the most creative, visual, challenging, fantastical sandbox of my career. I’m super proud and will miss it greatly.”

The final season will cover the last four books in Snicket’s series, The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, and The End. It will see the Baudelaire children travel to the bottom of the ocean, the top of a mountain, and to an island cult.
No doubt the release of series three will be bittersweet for fans of the books and the show, but it looks like Netflix wants to see its adaptation remain true to the books and not outstay its welcome.
As reported by Screen Daily, Saboteur Media gained worldwide rights for the project and is currently being pitched to buyers after the film wrapped in August. The story will take a new look at the classic story and begins with a Victorian family preparing a toy stage in order to do a production of A Christmas Carol. We then see the story through the eyes of a young viewer, as the cardboard sets and toys are transformed into a fantastic and vivid tale.
There’s no doubt we’re depleting the world’s resources and in Mortal Engines, Reeves imagines a world where we all have to resort to rolling cities, forced into predatory behaviour as they crawl the world fighting to survive.
After the surprising success of the first Goosebumps movie, starring Jack Black as Stine himself, this sequel looks to continue the fun and freaky mix of scary and silly. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween will star Madison Iseman, Ken Jeong, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Caleel Harris.
Jack Black is rumoured to return as the voice of one of the haunted book characters come to life!
Check out the trailer below, and watch out for the movie’s release mid-October.
The adaptations have been fantastic and both Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger have exceeded expectations in the leading roles. Read More
