Dec 06, 2016

Life is still grim for the Baudelaire children in Netflix's new trailer for Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, based on the book series by Daniel Handler.

Released Tuesday, the trailer shows Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny (Presley Smith) coping after their parents die in a fire while trying to avoid their treacherous guardian Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris).

The trailer warns that the story will not have a happy ending, advising audiences to "watch something more pleasant instead." At each miserable turn, Violet, Klaus and Sunny try to solve the mystery of their parents' death only to encounter Count Olaf in various disguises as he tries to steal their fortune.

The series streams on Netflix on Jan. 13. Watch the trailer above.
