Titus Andromedon does not deliver. He DiGiornos. (Sorry, that’s a reference only fans who stayed up all night streaming the first half of Season 4 of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” on Netflix will get. Well, shame on you for not watching it all as soon as it dropped.)
And his real life alter ego Tituss Burgess just “DiGorno-ed” TheWrap some scoop on where the Ellie Kemper-led comedy is headed, confirming to us it is “highly likely that we are going to do a movie.”
“But, unfortunately, I’m not the first one that gets briefed on these things [laughs],” Burgess said about the future of the series, which centers around Kimmy (Kemper), a woman trying to make it in NYC after being rescued from living in a bunker for 15 years as part of a doomsday cult.
“I don’t really know what the f–k is gonna happen,” he added. “But I do know that it’s very much on the table.”
“And how exciting to see what that would look like for such a zainy show,” said the actor, who plays a struggling gay thespian and Kimmy’s extra, extra roommate on the series. “What kind of territories we’ll be able to go in. First of all, with ‘Sex and the City’ and how it felt the same, but new. It felt cinematic. It felt expanded. So I’m excited to see what that kind of world, what that approach would be, to our world. That’s all I know.”
As TheWrap reported earlier this month, insiders say Netflix and Universal Television are in talks to bring the Tina Fey and Robert Carlock-created comedy to a close after the newly-released Season 4 with a movie in lieu of a series finale. Both the streaming platform and studio declined to comment.
The current season of “Kimmy” has been broken into two parts, with the first six episodes of the fourth installment dropping Wednesday, and the second batch of episodes to come at a later date. The breakup was a new move for Netflix, which usually posts all episodes of a new season at the same time.
However, the streaming service seems to be setting a precedent with the decision, as it also split up the newly-dropped Season 5 of “Arrested Development.”
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” also stars Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane.
The series hails from Universal Television in association with 3 Arts Entertainment, Little Stranger, Inc. and Bevel Gears for Netflix. Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, Sam Means, Jeff Richmond and David Miner executive produce the comedy.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” Season 4 Part 1 is now available for streaming on Netflix.
