The Good, The Bad & The Nerdy for January 3, 2018
A new teaser trailer for the second season of A Series of Unfortunate Events has dropped. Watch it above. It features Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) announcing the show’s official return on March 30th. Season 2 will cover Daniel Handler’s books 5-9.
When The X-Files returns to FOX (TONIGHT!), series star David Duchovny says that the longer season afforded them this time around will make it more like the good old days, and less like the frantic and somewhat schizophrenic six-episode event series that marked its official return in 2016. “The writers last time around had six episodes to bring a show back that had been off the air for ten years, so there was a lot of exposition to cover,” he said. “We don’t have to do that this time around, so I think it’s much more relaxed, it’s freer, it’s more flexible. I think it’s closer to what we used to do.”
