Say goodbye to the Baudelaires. FOREVER.

If you're not already watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix then you should probably check yourself immediately - before it's too late.

It's been revealed that the show, which is so great and so underrated by the way, will be ending after the third season. The show's star Neil Patrick Harris confirmed to TV Guide that the show will end after season three. No more ASOUE. No more fun capers with the Baudelaire super sleuths. Gone. Forever. Well, not forever, but you catch our drift.


Harris, who plays Count Olaf in the series, told TV Guide that they were only ever planning on doing the three seasons in relation to the book's storylines.

"We're three seasons all in. 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."

Season one focused on the first four books in the novels. Season two will focus on the next four books, and the third and final season will focus on the final four books. So while it's pretty sad news that the show (which again, is SO good) it's probably best that Netflix don't try and invent some more unfortunate mishaps for the kids to find themselves in.

But we're not going to have to concern ourselves with that until next year, when the third season drops on Netflix. Season two will be released on March 30th 2018.
