Netflix’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Renewed for Season Four

Fans of Netflix original comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt have a lot to be excited about. The third season of the surreal, cartoonish sitcom was released on Netflix just last month, and now Netflix has confirmed that Kimmy and the rest of the series’ somehow-loveable characters will return for a fourth season. Details are still scarce, but Netflix has issued a press release announcing the series’ renewal.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt follows the adventures and misadventures of its 29-year-old titular character as she stumbles her way through adult life in New York City. Kimmy is no normal coming-of-age New Yorker, however; Kimmy and three other women spent fifteen years in an underground bunker as captives of the bumbling wannabe cult leader Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm). After her release, Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) chooses not to let her past life cast a shadow on her bright future and blazes ahead with cheery optimism, helped along by her larger-than-life roommate Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) who is captivating enough to deserve his own series.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt received 11 Emmy Award nominations for its first two seasons, including two nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Ellie Kemper, and two nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Tituss Burgess. The series was created by Ellie Kemper, Tina Fey, and 30 Rock show runner Robert Carlock.

Netflix has yet to issue a release date for the fourth season. In the meantime, all three seasons of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are available for binge watching on Netflix.
