We now have a set date for the long awaited return of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” but you’ll have to settle for fewer episodes this time around. Netflix confirmed today that season 4 of Kimmy Schmidt will become available on May 30, 2018, but only that’s for only half of the season.
Season 4 will be divided into two-parts this time around, so there will be two premieres. The first six episodes of season four will launch for users on May 30, while the second half of the fourth season will launch “later in 2018” according to Netflix. The popular streaming service stopped short of announcing a premiere date for the second-half of the fourth season, but we may have a release window in May when the first-half premieres on the service.
Created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the three-time Emmy-nominated “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” follows Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) as she continues to adjust to the 21st century and learn more about who she really is. Joining Kimmy on her journey are her best friend and roommate, Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess); her former-employer-turned-friend Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski); and landlord Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane).
The series was created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, who also serve as executive producers alongside Sam Means, Jeff Richmond and David Miner. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is from Universal Television in association with 3 Arts Entertainment, Little Stranger, Inc. and Bevel Gears for Netflix.
