Best endings: How did Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt end?

As one of the very first Netflix original comedy series, saying goodbye to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and it’s colorful, quirky characters was nothing short of devastating. How could we part with Kimmy, Titus, Lillian, and Jacqueline after only four seasons?!

The comedy series, which was created by 30 Rock masterminds Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, centered on a 30-something woman who had been kidnapped in eighth grade and taken to an underground doomsday cult. After 15 years underground, she’s able to rediscover the world.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, for all of its hearty laughs and hilarious jokes, was rooted in such deep trauma for its main character. In spite of the smile on her face, she’s had to fight to maintain her positive outlook to the very end, which was the perfect sendoff for Kimmy.

After becoming a best-selling children’s book author, Kimmy opens her own amusement park based on her characters at Universal Studios, with her mother (Lisa Kudrow) ready to ride her rollercoaster. How else do you say farewell to Kimmy Schmidt than to show her in her element: Healing her inner child and spreading positivity to the world?

The series later returned in 2020 with the interactive movie special Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend, which was another perfect ending for the series and character.
