Just recently, Netflix released a teaser trailer for the upcoming A Series of Unfortunate Events TV adaptation. The release date has also been revealed and yet Lemony Snicket urges viewers not to watch.

According to, A Series of Unfortunate Events will be following the lives of the three Baudelaire orphans after moving in with their guardian Count Olaf.

The teaser trailer that Netflix released shows Lemony Snicket walking into a studio and telling the viewers not to watch the series before it airs in 2017. As Snicket continues to urge the viewers not to get sucked into the gloomy story of the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Count Olaf could be heard in the background singing a very happy tune. Just after Snicket mentions that the “entire crew is suffering from low morale, a phrase which here means: currently under medical obervation from melancholia…and acute wistfulness.”

Snicket even warns the viewers not to make “the same mistake that Netflix has…”

In a similar fashion, the release date for A Series of Unfortunate Events could not get any better or worse as it comes out on Jan. 13, which is a Friday, according to Entertainment Weekly.
