Now, this end-of-May release is a little bittersweet. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season four will reportedly be the series finale of the Netflix comedy series. “The series is still sophisticated and yet super absurd, but it also tackles topics like sexual harassment, employee rights, abortion, gender dynamics and even the incel community. Yet the season still has time to poke fun at less important areas like the tech boom or method acting,” says the folks at Den of Geek. “It’s nice that Kimmy Schmidt won’t overstay its welcome, but I’ll miss the layered, forward-thinking storylines that the show could turn out.”
Part one of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season four premieres on May 30.
Starring Dong-Gun Jang, Hyung-shik Park, Gwi-hwa Choi, Hee-kyung Jin and Jeong-an Chae
