Netflix has revealed when the final season of A Series of Unfortunate Events will land on the streaming service.
In a video announcement featuring Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) and Lemony Snicket (Patrick Warburton), January 1, 2019 was announced as season three’s premiere date.
The final season will see the Baudelaire siblings continue to try and evade Count Olaf, while investigating what happened to their parents.
Joining the cast this season will be Richard E. Grant, Peter MacNicol and Max Greenfield.
In March, Neil spoke exclusively to Digital Spy about his decision to end the series after three seasons.
“That was always the journey, for everyone involved,” he said. “I’m proud we’re all doing something that’s actually finite, and a piece of art. It’s something that you can put on a bookshelf and appreciate for what it is, not just year after year hoping that people are still interested.

“It’s another reason why the Netflix company is a great one to work for. It’s allowing a very healthy budget to create a world unlike anything anyone’s seen before. And it’s a finite world. It’s only going to be three seasons.”
And in May, the actor expressed his sadness as filming wrapped for season three.
“Can’t believe that tomorrow is my last day as Count Olaf,” Neil wrote on Instagram.
“For over two years I’ve gotten to play in the most creative, visual, challenging, fantastical sandbox of my career. I’m super proud, and will miss it greatly.”
The first two seasons of A Series of Unfortunate Events are streaming now on Netflix, while season three will premiere on January 1.
