A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 4: Will It Happen?
Sadly, most likely there will be no A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4, and the third season will also be the final season. In fact, the plan for the TV show was always to make it only to three seasons. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be another works from Lemony Snicket to adapt—considering how great the rating is.
There are some reasons for the impossibility for A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4. The episode finale in the third season is literally called ‘The End’.
Besides, there are no books left to adapt the stories from, so it seems like there won’t be A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4.
That being said, based on the ending of the third season, there is a huge potential that the creators can come up with a new story for A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4.
Or at least, there can be a spin-off from Lemony Snicket’s other works. That can include The Unauthorized Autobiography (2002), The Dismal Dinner (2004), The Beatrice Letters (2006), or All the Wrong Questions (2012-2015), the prequel of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 4: What Is It About?
Takes one step further than the books, at the end of the TV series, the Baudelaires finally escape the island and they are back to their old life. Before it ends, we can also see how Lemony Snicket’s niece, Beatrice Baudelaire, meets her uncle.
In A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4, we might as well see what happens next to Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire after they are back to civilization. Will they join the VFD? Will they take over the library? Or will they deal with a new adventure?
Or, A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4 may serve as the prequel, which tells us the story of Lemony Snicket, the VFD, as well as the Baudelaires’ parents before they passed away. Whatever it is, for now, the possibility for A Series of Unfortunate Events season 4 is bleak, so do not put your hopes too high.
