at .

Netflix is saying goodbye to one of its signature series. 

Per Deadline, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is coming to a close after four seasons on the streaming giant. 

There is word that a feature-length series finale is in the works to bring the storylines to a close.

If all goes to plan, the finale would be penned by series co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. 

The duo is still hard at work on Season 4 of the comedy series which has been split into two parts.

The first half will bow Friday, May 30 and will consist of six episodes. A premiere date for the second half will be announced at a later date. 

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt launched on Netflix in 2015 and marked the internet-based network's first foray into ongoing comedy series. 


It was initially supposed to air on NBC after landing a series order, but things changed, and it moved to Netflix with a two-season order. 

The show focuses on the life of Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper), who spent much of her life inside an underground bunker after a Reverend claimed the end of the world had come.

Kimmy emerges from the bunker and is thrust into a world of possibilities, and sets out to try and find her place in the world.

The show also stars Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane, and Jane Krakowski.

The series has remained just as fresh and original in its later seasons, but it makes sense to bring the show to a close before it starts to repeat itself. 

What are your thoughts on it?

Is it time to end the series, or are there many more stores left to tell?

Netflix Quotes

Lord God, we thank you for bringing the five of us together, and we humbly ask that you deliver us safely home. Carry us now through this crucible of fire, so that we may show the world that there is a better world, a world beyond division, and confusion, and fear. Let us discover a world beyond fear. Amen.


Jonathan: I notice a little bit of dryness on your cheek.
Tom: That’s my Lupus.
Jonathan: Okay, let’s talk about that a little. One thing I know about Lupus is that it’s all about SPF. Like, we have to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays because sun actually can cause inflammation and flare ups for people with Lupus.
Tom: Right...
[Cut to Jonathan’s confessional]
Jonathan: How you take care of yourself is how the world sees you, and he’s not taking care of himself.
