Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt deals with #MeToo, white privilege in season 4 trailer

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's upcoming season will be Kimmy's last - bowing out after four seasons and a whopping 16 Emmy nominations.

The fifth season of Netflix's revived comedy series Arrested Development is slated to premiere later this month, but much like the controversial fourth season of the show, not everything you want is going to be there at the same time.

As I wrote when the news of the final season being split into two was announced, "the quirky, charming, sometimes totally crackpot series, which stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski and Carol Kane, was one of Netflix's first hits in terms of original content, which now feels like it was decades ago". But now, the last eight episodes will debut sometime later this year.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be back soon for its fourth and final season - but only the first half of it! Put that way, it makes this sort of an encouraging sign, provided the streaming service really is just rushing to collect trophies with this move. Unlike broadcast and cable, which release a single episode each week, Netflix typically releases all its episodes at once. With all the regulars back for Season 4, there's still plenty of room for this show to get insane, including with newcomer guest star Bobby Moynihan as one of Kimmy's new workplace challenges.

She added to Gold Derby: "What felt different about Season 3 was that now that we have these longer episodes of 28 minutes, 32 minutes... there's so much more time that we can devote to all of the characters, to see everyone's stories get fleshed out even more". The series also recently confirmed that Jeffrey Tambor would be returning for season five, despite sexual misconduct allegations that led to his firing from Amazon's Transparent.
