Why It Was Cancelled

- Liam Aiken, Emily Browning, and the Hoffman sisters grew too old to reprise their roles as the Baudelaire children.
- Paramount and Nickelodeon couldn't get production off the ground.
- The movie series was cancelled.
- The series was rebooted thirteen years later into a Netflix show starring Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf and Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket. The series lasted from January 13, 2017 to January 1, 2019.
