Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is unstoppable and all signs are pointing towards season 4 of Unbreakable coming to Netflix. Below, we’ll cover everything we know about a possible fourth season, it’s official renewal status and also a possible prediction about when it’ll be coming out on Netflix. 

A quick history lesson on the history of the show. The NBC show was on verge of being lost forever after NBC decided against airing it. Netflix stepped in at the last minute and gave the show a brand new home. It stars Ellie Kemper and comes from longtime NBC star Tina Fey. It’s about Kimmy who goes out in search of a new life after being kept underground in a cult for much of her adult life.

Season 3 was probably the most significant season yet with a major plot twist in the form of the return of the revered. It also fixed some of the issues that season 2 developed.

Here’s how the schedule has been for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so far:

  • Season 1 – March 6th, 2015
  • Season 2 – April 15th, 2016
  • Season 3 – May 19th, 2017


Season 4 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Renewal Status

Official Renewal Status (Last Updated: 06/14/2017): Officially Renewed!

At the time of writing the show hasn’t been officially renewed but it’s expected to given the show’s ending and the genre the show sits in. Although Kimmy is the longest running sitcom, all others (with a couple exceptions) have seen continued renewals and we don’t think Unbreakable will be any different.

The show has officially been renewed with no new information other than the fact it’s been renewed. Becuase the show doesn’t rely on special effects or long seasons, sitcoms can be produced relatively cheaply and quickly.

When will season 4 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt be on Netflix?

As you may have seen above, each season so far has released after 13 months meaning that if this trend continues it’s likely that we’d get a new season in June 2018. Although given it’s roughly in 12 months interval don’t be surprised if we see it between March and May 2018.

It’s also likely we’ve not yet seen the end of Kimmy for 2018 as Netflix regularly uses her in promotions and special material.
