A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Baudelaire orphans meet Kit and Lemony Snicket in new trailer for final season

Netflix definitely saved the worst for last.

The streaming giant has released the first full trailer for the third and final season of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. When you stop to think about things, it's pretty astounding how they were able to crank out these seasons each year before the main child actors got too old.

Adapting the final four books in the series — The Slippery Slope, The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril, and The End — Season 3 will find Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), and Sunny (Presley Smith) still grappling with Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) and learning the most they ever have about VFD, the ultra-secret organization that their late parents belonged to.

Before that happens, however, they need to take a little trip up to the Mortmain Mountains, take the plunge in Captain Widdershins' submarine, become bellhops at the Hotel Denouement, and travel to a remote island in the middle of nowhere.

Watch the trailer:

Fans of the books (actually written by Daniel Handler) will undoubtedly be excited to see the introduction of classic characters like Kit Snicket (Allison Williams), The Man With a Beard But No Hair (Richard E. Grant), the Woman With Hair but No Beard (Beth Grant), the Denouement triplets (all played by Max Greenfield), and Ishmael (Peter MacNicol).

However, those who have read all 13 novels also know that Snicket didn't wrap up his story with a neat little bow, preferring to leave many loose ends blowing in the ambiguous breeze. As the Netflix series isn't a 100% faithful adaptation of Snicket's works, it may end up changing the final ending to make it less vague. After all, we see the author (played by Patrick Warburton) introducing himself to the Baudelaire orphans in the Season 3 trailer, despite the fact that he never met them in the books.
