Netflix Renews ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ for Season Four

Thirteen New Episodes Expected

Netflix has greenlit sitcom “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” for a fourth season, with an expected 13 new episodes. Debuting on March 6, 2015, the series from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock follows Kimmy Schmidt (Kemper) as she adjusts to life in New York City after her rescue from a doomsday cult in Indiana where she and three other women were held by Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm) for 15 years. Determined to be seen as something other than a victim and armed only with a positive attitude, Kimmy decides to restart her life by moving to New York City, where she quickly befriends her street-wise landlady Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane), finds a roommate in struggling actor Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), and gains a job as a nanny for the melancholy and out-of-touch socialite Jacqueline Voorhees (Jane Krakowski).

The Universal Television comedy was originally slated to air on NBC, but Netflix competed with an initial two season pick-up. Thirty nine episodes, to-date, have been produced.
