One of Netflix’s most beloved and critically-acclaimed comedies is officially coming to an end.
It has been confirmed by the streaming service that the upcoming fourth season of the Tina Fey co-created comedy, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” will be its last. Created by Fey and Robert Carlock, “Kimmy Schmidt” follows its titular character when she is rescued from a doomsday cult and endeavors to start her life over again in a modern-day New York City, despite having very little understanding of how much society has changed since she last saw it. It stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, Carol Kane, and more.
However, while it has been confirmed that the show will be wrapping up its TV run with its fourth season, there is also talk of a movie being made after the fourth season finale, which could act as an even bigger conclusion for the series’ story. Neither Netflix nor anyone involved in the series has confirmed the possibility of an “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” movie, but fans of the series may want to keep their eyes peeled for any official announcement to be made at some point in the coming months, should the project be greenlit.
While Netflix does not release its ratings, which can make it difficult to gauge just how successful some of its original series actually are, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” has remained a milestone achievement for the streaming service. Ever since its premiere back in 2015, the series has been on the receiving end of consistent critical praise and has garnered a dedicated fan following for itself over the years.
The fourth season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” will air in two separate parts. The first — made up of 6 episodes — is set to premiere May 30, while the remaining 7 episodes will premiere at a later, unconfirmed date.
