Second Half of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Season 4 to Premiere Next Year (Exclusive)

You better pace yourselves while binging the first half of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” Season 4, because TheWrap has learned exclusively from Netflix the next batch of episodes isn’t launching on the streaming service until after the new year.

The six newly-released episodes, which dropped Wednesday, will have to tide you over until the second half of the fourth installment of the Tina Fey and Robert Carlock created-series debuts on Jan. 25, 2019. Part 2 will also consist of six episodes.

As TheWrap reported earlier this month, insiders say Netflix and Universal Television are in talks to bring the Ellie Kemper-led comedy to a close after the current season with a movie in lieu of a series finale. Both the streaming platform and studio declined to comment.

However, Tituss Burgess — who plays Titus Andromedon, a struggling gay thespian and Kimmy’s extra, extra roommate, on the series — told TheWrap in a recent interview it is highly likely that we are going to do a movie.”

“But, unfortunately, I’m not the first one that gets briefed on these things [laughs],” Burgess said about the future of the show, which centers around Kimmy (Kemper), a woman trying to make it in NYC after being rescued from living in a bunker for 15 years as part of a doomsday cult.

“I don’t really know what the f— is gonna happen,” he added. “But I do know that it’s very much on the table.”

“And how exciting to see what that would look like for such a zany show,” Burgess continued. “What kind of territories we’ll be able to go in. First of all, with ‘Sex and the City’ and how it felt the same, but new. It felt cinematic. It felt expanded. So I’m excited to see what that kind of world, what that approach would be, to our world. That’s all I know.”

In Season 4, Kimmy, Titus, Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski) and Lillian (Carol Kane) are finding a new direction in both their lives and careers. Kimmy jumps headfirst into her new job at Giztoob. She’s ready to take on anything, except high heels, which she’s pretty sure were designed by a man, or a very confused lady. By creating a fake TV show, Titus takes his acting career into his own hands. Which, as always, are covered in maple syrup. As a talent agent working her way up, Jacqueline must deal with clients who are divas, troublemakers and have no valid social security number. All of these clients are Titus. Lillian continues to “disrupt” and “burst the paradigm,” or as it was called in the ’70s, “general dirtbaggery.”

To date, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” has earned 16 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including a best series nom for each of its first three seasons.

NBC Orders 3 Comedy Pilots From Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey, Bill Lawrence

NBC has ordered three new comedy pilots from executive producers Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey and Bill Lawrence, the network announced on Thursday.

First is an untitled comedy written and executive produced by Kaling and “The Mindy Project” executive producer Charlie Grandy. Kaling is also lined up to act in the pilot, and Howard Klein will also serve as executive producer.

The comedy, which hails from Universal Television, centers on Vince, a charismatic gym owner with no ambition who lives with his younger brother Michael, a gorgeous idiot.

The Universal Television comedy centers on the Sackett family as they are reunited when two estranged sisters perform an act of public heroism and are forced to navigate the aftermath together.

The third pilot order is for the workplace comedy “Spaced Out” from “Undateable” creator Adam Sztykiel and executive producer Bill Lawrence.

From Warner Bros. Television, the single-camera comedy centers on a working class genius and his struggles to fit in with an established team all made more difficult when their job is building a rocket to mars. Jeff Ingold will also serve as executive producer.
