Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- premieres 5/30/18





Kimmy and the gang are back! And they're ready to rise and grind...which is a pretty big step up from turning a lever in a bunker!
The first six episodes will release globally on May 30; the second part will be released later this year.

It is said that this is to be the final season and there will potentially be a wrap up movie.

WHAT? I had no idea this was coming... No "upcoming" ads on my Netflix page. One of my favorite shows.

I admit it helped that I was coming to this season after a very unfunny Arrested Development season 5 but I got in 2 episodes last night and enjoyed them. More importantly, I actually laughed.

I need new Kimmy this weekend. We had to say goodbye to our beloved 14-year-old Yorkie last night, and Kimmie will help take the edge off the sadness...

The accidental sexual harassment scene was great.

You have to give full attention so you donít miss the jokes.

Favorite Titus line so far...

ďDocumentaries are the books of movies.Ē

Third episode in, first two were great, the third Party Monster documentary was pretty odd, but different.
Spoiler:
But nice tie back to Titus' stock footage jobs.

Yes, I totally agree. Even the odd documentary episode was just funny as hell.

That six episodes was just jammed with funny - "like Britney Spears in Crossroads." The guest star spots just keep coming!

OMG! I can't believe we have to wait until January for the rest. Is it true there's one more season then a "movie" series finale?

This season is the last (January will be series finale), movie is likely.

Didn't know it was only 6 episodes this time.
Loved the documentary, especially with Jon Hamm's actual dating show footage used - fucking hilarious!

Woah, quick season, but very funny. The documentary episode was surprisingly amusing, but very interesting to see the events from another perspective. Kimmy going after the reverend's girlfriend was awesome.

I saw more episodes are coming January 25th. It says it is the final episodes.

I wonder if the Fey-Carlock universe will continue on with something else.

Probably, til then Fey and Carlock are still hoping to do a standalone Kimmy Schmidt movie.

Started this tonight, i'm digging it. Way more rapid fire and better throwaways than it has been lately, I'm hoping they bring up the Cyndi Lauper at large at some point.

Daredevil guy

As a warning, episode 9 is about 55 minutes long. Plan accordingly.

The last season or 2 has been a step down from the first couple but they still wrapped up nicely.

I only just discovered this show, but wanted to go on record as thinking the first season and a half are brilliantly funny. Looking forward to bingeing the rest.

Re: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- premieres 5/30/18

Kimmy Schmidt, meet Bandersnatch.

Netflix is bringing back “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” for an untitled, one-off interactive special, set to debut in 2020. It’s the first interactive comedy for the streamer.

As with Netflix’s “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” movie and other interactive shows, viewers will be able to make choices on behalf of the “Kimmy Schmidt” characters and take them down different story branches — and they’ll get different jokes.

Cast returning for the interactive special include Ellie Kemper in the title role, along with Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane.

It’s something of a stunt, but there’s no doubt fans of the show will be eager to dive back into the off-kilter world of “Kimmy Schmidt” in a new way. Another goal for Netflix: to drive viewers to rewatch all or part of the existing 51 episodes in the series, or reel in new fans to binge-watch it — thereby extracting more value out of programming that’s already in the bank.

Netflix’s order for the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” interactive special comes after the fourth and final season of the show dropped in January. In its announcement, Netflix quoted Tina Fey, co-creator and executive producer, as saying the interactive special “will be a great way to officially complete the series.”

Netflix has claimed “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” — a navel-gazer of an interactive movie, about an interactive video game based on a choose-your-own-adventure book — was a huge hit. But as is typically the case with the company, there’s no public data to gauge how popular it actually has been. Netflix last month debuted interactive original “You vs. Wild” starring Bear Grylls. Its first content in the format were kids’ shows and the company recently ordered animated interactive show “Battle Kitty.”

Over its four-season run, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” earned 18 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including for best comedy series, but was shut out from any wins.

The show was created and executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Jeff Richmond, Sam Means, David Miner and Meredith Scardino also serve as executive producers. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is a production of Universal Television, Little Stranger, Bevel Gears and 3 Arts Entertainment.

I'd rather just have an actual movie.
