Is it the end for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Recently, Deadline spoke with creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock about the possibility of a movie for the Netflix TV show.
The final episodes of the comedy series debut on Netflix today, January 25th. The show centers on Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper), a young woman who moves to New York City after being rescued from a doomsday cult. The cast also includes Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski, Jon Hamm, Fred Armisen, and Mike Carlsen.
We would respond just to the idea to have everybody back not just our cast but our crew who we love so much, and so many of whom are our crew from 30 Rock. These are the people we’ve been working with for 12 years on and off, so the idea of any excuse to reunite, we’re more than happy to do it, and we definitely feel like these characters are fertile enough to revisit, and yeah, hopefully it will all work out.”
And what about the series? How will it end? Fey says:
When you’re ending a series, you know you are going to let people get what they want because you hold off on growth for so long, with characters, and Kimmy’s landing place was something we had thought of at the end of the previous season. I do like how Kimmy’s story ends, and how her dark experience and her childlike imagination have combined to make her who she is, and she’s able to really make something of value out of who she is.”
