The images give a taster of the fantastical worlds that viewers are going to be delving into for the last time as the Baudelaires seek to rid themselves of the odious Count Olaf (played by Neil Patrick Harris) once and for all.
Speaking about the end of A Series of Unfortunate Events, Harris told Digital Spy: “That was always the journey, for everyone involved.
“I’m proud we’re all doing something that’s actually finite, and a piece of art. It’s something that you can put on a bookshelf and appreciate for what it is, not just year after year hoping that people are still interested.

Seasons two and three appear to have been filmed back-to-back with production starting in April 2017 and running for nearly a year.

Filming on season three took place earlier this year with Harris confirming that the shoot had finished in May 2018.
Posting to his 27 million Twitter followers, he shared a monochrome photo of himself in character as Count Olaf.
He captioned the image: “Can’t believe that tomorrow is my last day as Count Olaf. For over two years I’ve gotten to play in the most creative, visual, challenging, fantastical sandbox of my career. I’m super proud, and will miss it greatly. @Unfortunate.”
Season three is filmed on location in Vancouver and British Columbia in Canada, according to IMDb.
A Series of Unfortunate Events was previously filmed at the Ironwood Studios in South Vancouver and near the shipyards in North Vancouver, according to Canadian site What’s Filming.
Speaking about filming in Canada, Harris told CBC: “I have always been a fan of Canada and Canadians in general.”
He went on to say: “A lot of my best friends, most trustworthy friends are Canucks.
“So I was happy to film there and I’m glad that I’m not doing How I Met Your Mother anymore just so I don’t have to keep telling awful Canada jokes.”
