The second part of the final season of Netflix’s unyieldingly upbeat Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is just over a week away, and to get us in the mood a brand new trailer has landed.
In these final adventures for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper), our optimistic hero is finding that adulting isn’t all she thought it would be as her eclectic friends are in constant need of her help. The last six-episodes includes an extended “Sliding Doors” themed instalment that takes a look at how Titus (Tituss Burgess), Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski) and Lillian’s (Carol Kane) lives would have been different if they never met Kimmy.
I’m a huge fan of Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s work; if you haven’t seen their now cancelled Good News, I urge you to binge it on Netflix as soon as possible. Kimmy is a unique offering of a sitcom and one that I am really going to miss when it’s gone. The upside is that this might not be the end, as when it was announced that season four would be the final run, there was talk of a Netflix movie to wrap up any loose ends. There hasn’t been a lot of updates on that since, but we can only live in the hope that there is a bit more Kimmy still to come.
The final episodes feature guest spots from Jon Hamm, Zachary Quinto, Greg Kinnear, Busy Phillips, Amy SedarisFred Armisen, Jon Bernthal, Steve Buscemi, Kenan Thompson, and Lisa Kudrow.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt returns for her final episodes on January 25.
