Will there be an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 4? This is the question at the heart of this article, but there’s no evidence yet of a renewal one way or another.
For the time being, this is what is known: The Ellie Kemper comedy remains one of the most popular shows on Netflix, and for that reason alone, it’s fair to assume that it is going to be coming back for more episodes. They are not interested in getting rid of a show that does more than just get critical acclaim — it also gets into the pop-culture consciousness and gets people talking in a wide array of different ways. When you are a show like this, one of the things that you probably do look for more so than anything else is a pop-culture barometer. Netflix wants shows that people talk about; in turn, that makes them want to watch more Netflix. It’s a different way of doing things than what you see for many other networks.
The same goes for just how long Netflix could wait to announce the renewal news, mostly because this is something that they don’t have as much of a set timeline to do. There is no clear upfront, so as a result of that, the show may choose to wait a few weeks before making the news official one way or another. They’ll likely see how some of the preliminary viewing data comes in, and then make their decision from there.
Rest assured of one thing, though: The love for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt at the moment is pretty clear. With that, it’s also fairly clear that a fourth season of the show is going to be coming. It’s mostly a matter of when the renewal will be announced, and then following that when the new season of the show is going to air. It could be a while, but hopefully it will prove itself to be worthy of the wait and then some. (For the time being, it’s probably fair to look at spring / early summer for when it will return.)
