Netflix announced back in 2014 that it would be developing the children's books into an original series. Snicket's 13 novels chronicle the misadventures of the three Baudelaire orphans as they are pursued by the villainous Count Olaf.

The books were previously adapted into a 2004 feature film starring Jim Carrey as Count Olaf. This time around, How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris has reportedly signed on to play the lead villain in the Netflix adaptation.
