‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Might Be Ending With Season 4 — But There’s Some Good News
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s fourth season, which premieres on Netflix on May 30, might be its last. Deadline reports that the show will end after part two of the upcoming season, but that its creators have a pretty special finale in the works.
According to the report, talks are underway to conclude the series with a movie. The feature-length finale would reportedly be written by the show’s co-creators, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, once the current season wraps production. Neither Netflix nor Universal has commented, but the reason for the show’s end is said to be an organic one. According to Deadline, everyone involved felt it was just time.
Netflix previously announced that season 4 would air in two parts, with the first six episodes being made available on May 30, and the remaining episodes coming at a later date. Series star Jane Krakowski told the Today show at the time that the series was split in an attempt to get the episodes up faster. “We’re going to shoot ’em and get them out as quickly as possible so we don’t have to make our fans wait so long,” she said.
The first look at Kimmy Schmidt‘s fourth season, released earlier this week, shows our heroine starting her new job as the HR manager of tech startup Giztoob. Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) soon finds that her sunny disposition might be a mismatch for the world of business, as her first task is to fire someone.
Check out the trailer for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 4 below, and tune into the first six episodes on Netflix starting May 30.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
