The Lemony Snicket books were just as popular as Harry Potter for a long time, but they didn’t have the same success when they tried to cross over onto the big screen. Now, the books are getting a second chance at live action with a new TV series that has just been set as a Netflix exclusive.

If you aren’t familiar with the book series, they tell the story of three children after their parents’ death in a house fire, as they were subsequently placed in the custody of their nefarious cousin/uncle Count Olaf, who plotted to steal their inheritance. After they were taken out of his care, he continued to hunt the children down, resulting in the titular series of events.
