We’ve got good new and bad news, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” fans. The bad? The Ellie Kemper-led Netflix series could be ending soon. The good? When it does, it might be going out in a big, big way.
Netflix and producer Universal Television are in talks to bring the comedy to a close after the upcoming Season 4 with a movie, an insider with knowledge of production told TheWrap Thursday.
The fourth installment of “Kimmy” — which will premiere in two halves — drops on the streaming service on May 30. The first teaser for the next season dropped Thursday, just before news broke it could be the beginning of the end for the series.
The first six episodes of the sitcom are set to launch together on May 30. The second half will follow later in the year with another release of episodes. “Kimmy” also stars Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess and Carol Kane.
Netflix usually posts all episodes of a new season at the same time, allowing for a subscriber to determine consumption.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” 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.
Netflix and Universal Television declined TheWrap’s request for comment.
