Call it the show that NBC let get away. The network took the show from their midseason-schedule and allowed it to get shifted over to Netflix, who felt confident enough in the comedy to give it a two-season order. And it looks like their instincts were bang on, as the show has been a critical and audience fave, and the second season will soon be here to continue the good times.
Ellie Kemper leads the series as the titular Kimmy Schmidt, a survivor of a doomsday cult who is now restarting her life in New York City. And the new season will see our hero on a whole new set of adventures in the big city. Here’s the synopsis:
Season two of the Emmy-nominated series picks up shortly after season 1 and finds Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) looking for a new job, Titus (Tituss Burgess) forced to face his past with the appearance of his ex-wife and Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski) rediscovering her roots, while landlady Lillian (Carol Kane) finds a surprising romance.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” returns on April 15th. Watch below.
