Paramount is developing an All the Wrong Questions series for Netflix. This series will be a prequel for A Series of Unfortunate Events, which has all seasons streaming worldwide.

First up, let’s provide a bit of context. A Series of Unfortunate Events has been one of Netflix’s biggest series to date adapting all of the novels from Daniel Handler who wrote under the pen name of Lemony Snicket.

The series had three seasons between 2017 and 2019, before it was wrapped up with season 3. It was the end of season three, and it was adapting books so there wasn't room for another season. We speculated that there might be other stories in the universe.

Now, a year later, we’ve got word that a new series is in development at Paramount Television Studios that is set for release on Netflix.

All the Wrong Questions serves as the prequel to A Series of Unfortunate Events' main storyline.

So far, what do we know?

Here’s how the new show is being described:

Before the Baudelaires became orphans, before he encountered A Series of Unfortunate Events, even before the invention of Netflix, Lemony Snicket was a boy discovering the mysteries of the world. In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn’t have been on his mind.

Barry Sonnenfeld will once more be participating in this project. Daniel Handler was the author of the original books under his pen name. Barry directed many episodes of A Series of Unfortunate Events in every season, and was involved in the production of seasons 1 through 3.

Among Barry’s other credits include all three of the Men in Black movies, Wild Wild West and The Addams Family where he served as director. Barry was also a producer for the 2004 original movie version of A Series of Unfortunate Events, starring Jim Carey.

Whether we’d see the return of Patrick Warburton who played Lemony Snicket in the main series or Will Arnett or Cobie Smulders return for roles is yet to be seen.

The myriad of Easter eggs found in the Netflix main series were early indicators that a prequel series might be coming down the road.

That’s all we know for now but would you like to see more in the A Series of Unfortunate Events universe? We'd love to hear from you in the comments.
