In what can only be described as truly awful news, Netflix has subjected us to a first look at season two of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

In brand new images from the show, we see the Baudelaire orphans where we left them at the end of season one, yet to face the cruel trials of 'The Austere Academy'.

The episodes kick off by adapting the fifth book of the same name from the series, taking us right up to the events of the ninth book, The Carnivorous Carnival.

One of the first images shows Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes) and Sunny (Presley Smith) at the Prufrock Preparatory School as they meet horrible classmate Carmelita Spats (Kitana Turnbull).

In the images, we also get a first look at Lucy Punch as Baudelaire guardian Esmé Squalor, the sixth most important financial advisor in the city, in 'The Ersatz Elevator'.

Oh, and there's a nice glimpse of Count Olaf's (Neil Patrick Harris) latest devious disguises – notably the very Karl Lagerfeld-looking European auctioneer Günther, and a medical staff member in 'The Hostile Hospital' alongside Squalor.

"Tonally, we have more action, and things are little darker and sadder," executive producer Barry Sonnenfeld told Entertainment Weekly of the new batch of episodes.

Harris added: "Now that we're in season 2 – and I think the same is true with the books – now the Baudelaires can start to take some control and try and take more action.

"I think season 2 ends up being a little bigger in its scope and scale, but also allows for a little bit of a more fevered heartbeat from our protagonists."

A Series of Unfortunate Events season two is set to drop on Netflix in spring 2018.
