Netflix seemed like they were taking their sweet time to officially greenlight Season 2 of its original series #ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents, which premiered to rave reviews in January. But now that they've locked in Season 2 and Season 3, they're wasting no time getting the cameras rolling.
Filming for A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 officially began in Vancouver on April 13. But it's not just Netflix who's recording the whole thing. The cast — particularly the charming cast of child actors — have been sharing behind-the-scenes pics on social media almost non stop.
Filming for "The Austere Academy" is finished! If it's taking approximately one month per story, filming should wrap completely around September, give or take.
Louis Hynes, Malina Weissman, Dylan Kingwell and Avi Lake all posted nearly the same picture of the Baudelaires and Quagmires chillin' out on lawn chairs after finishing filming Episodes 1 and 2. Congrats, guys!
Carmelita Spats might be the biggest brat at Prufrock, but it looks like Kitana Turnbull is getting along with her co-stars just fine!
Malina Weissman rests up on set while on-screen little bro Louis Hynes goofs off behind her.
It's not just the kids who are social media savvy these days. Star Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket) took to Instagram himself to brag about spending time with the cool clique on set; and while his deadpan imitation of an adolescent female is on point, that's not the best part about this pic. The best part is the child covered in pink ruffles and bling. It's actress Kitana Turnbull, and it looks like this is our first glimpse of her as name-calling, orphan-hating spoiled brat Carmelita Spats! There's no word yet on who those two cakesniffers are behind her, though.
Louis Hynes, the 15-year-old actor who plays Klaus Baudelaire, shared this Instagram post to announce the beginning of filming:
He also shared the following #MondayMotivation, showing his and Malina Weissman's (Violet Baudelaire) chairs on set:
On March 30, Malina also shared her own behind-the-scenes pic of the mountain of luggage she was bringing with her to Vancouver for filming:
And here are the two lucky children looking rather mischievous in what appears to be a wine bar...?

Louis and Malina aren't the only child stars running around on set. Avi Lake (Isadora Quagmire) shared a similar snap of the chairs belonging to her and Dylan Kingwell, who plays her on-screen triplet brothers, Duncan and Quigley:
Dylan tweeted the same pic, with a V.F.D. pun and Snicketism of his own.
Even child stars need to get an education, and Avi Lake showed her fans what her behind-the-scenes homeschooling space looks like:
Clearly already committed to the role of poet, Avi crafted a couplet to go along with another post that would have made Isadora proud:
