During 2019, and after four seasons, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” (2015-2019) came to an end… or that’s what they made us believe. The sitcom created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and starring Ellie Kemper as the unbreakable title girl returns to the Netflix grid with an interactive special that will premiere on May 12. For this triumphant comeback, the production spared no expense and we will see Kimmy, apparently heading down the aisle and making good crumbs with Daniel Radcliffe, as well as continuing to fight his kidnapper, the leader of the end-of-the-world cult: Reverend Dr. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, played by Jon Hamm.
Take it 10 seconds at a time ’til I’m back on May 12th! Fudge yeah! Did I mention you get to decide how the story ends? pic.twitter.com/KLwqwGG6De—Kimmy Schmidt (@KimmySchmidt)

The special is not a novelty as it had been announced as soon as the comedy was completed in January 2019. Today we get the first images, novelties and the first preview of this event entitled “Kimmy vs. The Reverend,” which also adds up the shares of Jack McBrayer, Chris Parnell – both students of “30 Rock” (2006-2013) – and Johnny Knoxville, in unspecified roles. The rest of the cast consists of well-known faces for the series: Tituss Burgess (Titus Andromedon), Jane Krakowski (Jacqueline White), Carol Kane (Lillian Kaushtupper) and some regular guests such as Sara Chase, Lauren Adams, Sol Miranda, Amy Sedaris, Michael Carlsen and Fred Armisen.La official synopsis of “Kimmy vs. Kimmy. The Reverend” says “Kimmy begins her biggest adventure to date. Three states! Explosions! A dancing burger! And you, the spectator, can decide how the story goes. Can you thwart the reverend’s evil plan and take Kimmy down the aisle in time? Or will you accidentally start a war against robots? These are some of the options offered by this interactive spin off, which uses the same technology as “Bandersnatch” (2018), the episode of “Black Mirror” that also invited us to choose the fate of its characters. Although it is clear that, in this case, everything will be less dark and much more fun.
Little and nothing is known about the plot beyond radcliffe’s character’s name is Frederick. Schmidt reached the league of the single series, but became a successful children’s story writer very much in the style of J.K. Rowling- author of the Harry Potter saga – as confessed by Fey and Carlock. It is now up to the public to decide the sympathetic fate of its protagonists, who unlike us are not isolated in quarantine.
