Netflix has renewed family series “A Series of Unfortunate Events” for a second season.
The series, which premiered in January, drew high praise from many critics, including Variety‘s own Sonia Saraiya, who wrote, “Tonally, ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ is a weird, wonderful masterpiece — a self-consciously droll gothic dramedy that might be what would happen if Wes Anderson and Tim Burton decided to make a television series about children together.”
“The 100” will live to see another season. The CW has just ordered a fifth season of the sci-fi series to premiere sometime in the 2017-18 season.
The series drew a rash of criticism last season following the death of one of its lesbian characters, which may have contributed to some of the ratings erosion it experienced from Season 3 to 4. However, it’s been a steady performer since then, and like many of its network brethren sees big ratings lifts once delayed viewing is factored in; it also streams well on The CW’s platform.
