How about :
Events being chronological is already inferred as no one has invented a time machine yet ( as we know of). Also there is a stronger condition has been imposed on the series of events, namely the specific combination ( be it their chronlogical order or type-of-event wise ).
Your goal seems to be to replace all three words in “series of events” with one word, but I don’t see one. However, if you’re willing to consider two words that would cover both “series” and “events,” I’d propose “chain reaction”:

chain of events
cascade of events
concatenation of events
consecution of events
