Will Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt return for season 5?
Only the name says Unbreakable, but sadly enough, the series has been broken off 🙁

In a more recent article, Kimmy Schmidt co-creator Robert Carlock also told Deadline that a movie would be “fun”
“I just think it would be really fun. We chose very specific ending places for everybody but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t stories to tell. I think there’s some really fun stuff that is still on the table for all of them, so it would be fun.”
“We definitely feel like these characters are fertile enough to revisit,” Tina Fey added, “and yeah, hopefully it will all work out.”
Will there be a spin-off series or movie?
Yes. The makers have spoken about a movie release. The co-creator Carlock said in an interview:
“We now have a shorter runway than we originally thought we would and don’t want to overstuff it and rush it,” he says. “And there are things that I think would be fun to hold off for kind of a big epic finale in feature form.”
“As to whether the movie would just be for Netflix or have a theatrical release, Carlock says, “I don’t know. That’s a good question. I think it’s probably just for the platform. Sometimes they do both but I don’t know if we’ve gotten down to crossing those T’s just yet.”
Is there a trailer?
Nope and even if a movie were to happen, there won’t be a trailer any time soon. For the time being, watch the previous season’s trailer down below.
