Allison Williams joins the A Series of Unfortunate Events cast
Netflix has announced that Allison Williams (Get Out, Girls) has joined the A Series of Unfortunate Events cast. The actress, who received a nice welcome from her castmates that you can check out below, is currently filming the third and final season of the series and is also set to appear in the second season, which will launch on the streaming site on March 30. Details on Williams’ character in the show are being kept under wraps.
Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), season two of the Netflix original series plunges further into the epic world of this darkly comedic mystery. Executive produced by Emmy Award-winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler – the new season of A Series of Unfortunate Events consists of ten cinematic one-hour episodes, and premieres worldwide spring 2018, exclusively on Netflix.
Starring Emmy and Tony Award-winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – and their extraordinary encounters with the devious Count Olaf who will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. Foiling his many dastardly plans and disguises, the young siblings discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death, links to a covert organization, and begin to unlock long-held family secrets.
Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith, Patrick Warburton and K. Todd Freeman (among others) return for season two. New additions to the cast also include (but are not limited to) Lucy Punch, Nathan Fillion, Tony Hale, Sara Rue and Roger Bart.
The show’s first season, now available to stream, adapts the first four books in the hugely popular Lemony Snicket book series. Season 2 is expected to adapt books five through nine, while a third and final season (already ordered by Netflix) would finish off the adaptations, taking on books ten through thirteen.
