In some of the most unfortunate news we’ve heard recently, Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events season two is set to get even more grim and – dare we say – horrible, going by the new cast additions.
And that’s because Nathan Fillion is set to join his former Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog co-star Neil Patrick Harris in the series’ second run, according to Variety.
On top of that, the site reports that Veep star Tony Hale has been cast alongside Popular‘s Sara Rue, Into the Wood‘s Lucy Punch and Desperate Housewives‘ Roger Bart.
Who they will each be playing has been kept under wraps – though there are some pretty great characters in the upcoming books that the series is based upon to choose from.

The first season of the Netflix show, which is based upon the Lemony Snicket novels, premiered early this year to great acclaim, and was quickly renewed for a second season.
The next bunch of episodes were announced in a style very much in keeping with the show’s tone – an online riddle.
When the series is expected to return is still yet to be unveiled, but Neil Patrick Harris has already started filming for the next season and is sharing the photos on Instagram to prove it.
The show has been renewed for a third season as well, so we shall be getting many more terrible tales of the Baudelaire orphans in the foreseeable future.
A Series of Unfortunate Events follows the three children as they try to evade the evil Count Olaf (Harris) from stealing their fortune.
The series also stars Patrick Warburton, Malina Weissman, Louis Hynes, Presley Smith and K Todd Freeman.
