Fans of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are in for a treat. Netflix just announced they are reviving the TV show for a new interactive special.
From Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the comedy series stars Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt, a young woman who moves to New York City to make a life for herself after being rescued from a doomsday cult. The cast also includes Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski, Jon Hamm, Fred Armisen, and Mike Carlsen.
