Netflix has provided the first look at the last season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and also revealed that talks of a possible movie are currently happening. The comedy series, from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, has been a critical hit, earning 16 Emmy Nominations. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt moved from NBC to Netflix before the first season even started, and has had a rabid fanbase ever since.
The first half of Season 4 will premiere May 30th and Netflix has provided a sneak peek at the first episode. In the scene, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) makes her way to her first day as HR manager at Giztoob, in the style of a 90's Main Title Sequence, complete with a soundtrack of the original song, "Little Girl, Big City" sung by the multi-talented Jane Krakowski. The excitement of Kimmy's new position in life reaches a record scratching halt when she arrives to the office and her first task is to fire someone.
The fourth season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be split into two parts because show co-creator Tina Fey took some time off to launch her Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway. However, this break ends up helping the Netflix series, allowing for a proper ending, instead of stopping abruptly. Additionally, talks of a movie after the fourth season are happening now, but there are no further details about a full-length movie to send off the series. The talks of an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt movie also indicate that the ending of the show is mutual between Netflix and its creators.
The first half of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 4 features six half-hour episodes filmed in Brooklyn, New York. The show was created by Tina Fey (30 Rock) and Robert Carlock (30 Rock), who serve as executive producers with Jeff Richmond and David Miner. Fans have been waiting to see how Kimmy will handle her new position and it looks like she's going to do it the only way that she knows how to, which looks like it will be pretty humorous from the brand-new episode one teaser.
According to Robert Carlock, "Our characters are not fully aware exactly of what's going on in the world, for various reasons," but Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will tackle some of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements in the fourth season. Kimmy will have to deal or witness some of these experiences in her new workplace environment. However, Carlock says that the show may not come out and explicitly say that these things are going on, which makes sense. The rest of the 6 episodes are expected to be released later in 2018, putting an end to the series.
