Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to end after season 4 and possible movie

While Netflix does not release its ratings, which can make it hard to gauge just how successful some of its original series actually are, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" has remained a milestone achievement for the streaming service.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 4 is nearly here, but it'll be the series' last hurrah. The show follows Kimmy Schmidt as she moves to NY after she is rescued from a doomsday cult, where she was being held captive underground by a mad preacher played by Jon Hamm. They also released five new photos from the upcoming fourth season of the critically acclaimed, award-winning comedy series. The series, co-created by Tina Fey, was originally sold to NBC, but when the broadcast network passed on the show, Netflix swooped in and picked it up for 13 episodes.

Netflix released a promo for Season 4 on Thursday that features Kimmy Schmidt appearing in an opening title sequence for a fake sitcom called "Little Girl, Big City" as she gets ready for work.
