It's About to Get So Much Worse in the Season 2 Teaser for A Series of Unfortunate Events

  • Cinelinx
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is gearing up for their 2nd season in March!  Take a look at what's in store within!

There is a lot to love about what Netflix did with Season 1 of A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the novel by Lemony Snicket.  For starters, they had an exceptional cast, with incredible timing and pace.  Plus, the environments were just gorgeous as they went from drab to eye-poppingly colorful.  However, the best part of Season 1 was how overwhelmingly depressing it was.  That may be a strange thing to say about a show, but that's exactly what they promised and it was brilliant to watch.  

According to the new teaser for Season 2, it's going to get even worse for the Baudelaire children!

More isn't always better. Sometimes it's much worse. March 30th, get ready for more villains, more schemes, more peril, more orphans and more intentional fires.

Pilot Season 2018: Volume Steady With 2017, Multi-Camera Comedy Orders Surge

The broadcast networks are now deep in the heart of pilot season, with the volume of pilot orders for the 2018-2019 season on par with last year.

The five networks have collectively ordered 74 pilots, with 45 of those being dramas and 29 comedies. In 2017, the networks also ordered 74 pilots total, with 41 of those being dramas and 33 being comedies. 2017 was also down approximately 16 percent from the 88 pilots ordered in 2016.

Multi-camera comedies, whose imminent destruction has been trumpeted for several years, made a major resurgence this year. Of the 29 comedies ordered to pilot, 16 are multi-cams. That is more than double the seven multi-cams ordered to pilot in 2017. The move to more multi-cams is not surprising, as the format is typically less costly than single-camera comedies at a time when networks are looking to reduce costs.

Reboots, revivals, and adaptations also remain hot commodities across broadcast. CBS has ordered pilots for new versions of “Cagney and Lacey” and “Magnum P.I.” as well
