Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Seasons: 4

Created By: Tina Fey and Robert Carlock

Starring: Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski

Right out of the gate, Netflix came out swinging with a handful of instant classic hits like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, one of the first Netflix original comedy series. Even though the colorful comedy lasted for a mere four seasons, its impact remained felt into the year 2020 thanks to a new interactive special. Obviously, it’s one of the top funniest shows on Netflix.

From ace 30 Rock team Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt, a 30-something woman who’s freed, along with three other women, from an underground doomsday cult she’s been trapped in for half of her life. Once free, Kimmy embarks on a fresh start in New York City, but it won’t be easy living in a modern world.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been met with mixed reception regarding the dark undertones of its premise, and the series attempts to tackle these issues as the series goes on without losing its sense of whimsy. Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane and Jane Krakowski are a comedy quartet for the ages, and you won’t stop laughing even on your third, fourth or fifth binge-watch.
