Neil Patrick Harris Done With ‘Unfortunate Events’ After Season Three


Neil Patrick Harris has confirmed he’ll quit as villainous Count Olaf after three seasons of Netflix hit A Series Of Unfortunate Events.

The streaming service’s bosses renewed his show for a second and a third season last year (17), promising to adapt the remaining nine Lemony Snicket novels from writer Daniel Handler’s 13-book series.

And now Harris, who also produces the franchise, has announced the third season will wrap up the saga.

“We’re three seasons all in,” Harris tells TV Guide. “We’ve intentionally been very truthful and factual and loyal to the books. We’ve added a few characters that aren’t in the books, we’ve added some songs that you probably couldn’t put into the books, but for the most part we’re sticking to the structure of what already worked.”

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events season two launches on Netflix on 30 March (18).

Jim Carrey also portrayed Count Olaf in 2004 movie A Series of Unfortunate Events.
