Everything We Know About Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is finally within reach – the latest season of the show drops on Netflix on Friday at 12:01 a.m..
Seeing as we’ve been anticipating the comedy’s return for months, all while following Titus Burgess’ bourgeoning winemaking career, we want to make sure we’re ready for this weekend. (We’ve already canceled all of our plans with human friends.)
Here’s what we know about the new season so far.
1. We’re going to learn more about Jacqueline Vorhees’ backstory.
Vorhees’s storyline starts back on the reservation, where she was raised. “It really becomes her plight, in her own Jacqueline sort of way, to help the Native American people – or, the Manhattan view of the Native American people – and that’s a big step for Jacqueline to try to help someone outside of herself,” Jane Krakowski told EW about her character in a recent interview.
In addition to this significant emotional journey, she’ll be messing around with a trophy boyfriend (Broadway actor Derek Klena) and will clash with rival housewife Deirdre, played by Anna Camp.
2. That’s right. Anna Camp is involved.
And we think she was born to play a New York housewife.
Here’s a clip:
3. Also appearing in the new season: Jeff Goldblum, Fred Armisen, Girls star Zosia Mamet, David Cross and co-creator Tina Fey.
All our faves in one place? We can’t handle it. Amy Sedaris will be reprising her role as Mimi Kanassis though, unfortunately, no word on whether or not John Hamm returns.
4. Jeff Goldblum will be playing Dr. Dave – a Dr. Phil-type spoof – who is interested in the Kimmy’s past as a Mole Woman.
Goldblum was born for this role.
5. Tina Fey thinks this season is funnier than the first.
“I can promise you there will be lots of laughs and crazier moments than the first season,” Fey told Vogue on the red carpet at the season two premiere. “You can trust me or you can call me a liar!”
6. Kimmy Schmidt is going to grow up – sort of.
Ellie Kemper talked about the changes her character will go through over the course of the season. “Kimmy will always retain a child-like wonder of the world around her, but she is growing up and really experiencing the world this season,” Kemper said at the premiere. “There’s a lot of soul-searching and she’s experiencing love and heartbreak. Like any person coming of age does, she feels vulnerable and trying to make the best out of the situation.”
We just hope she doesn’t stop wearing adorable backpacks and hair scrunchies.
7. The main theme of the season is love.
“There’s more love with a lot of heart in season two,” co-creator Robert Carlock said. “Many of the characters will experience the joys or the pains of love.”
8. THERE’S GOING TO BE A TITUS MOMENT FUNNIER THAN "PEENO NOIR".
Titus Burgess, who plays Titus Andromedon, promises that there will be a Titus performance/moment funnier than “Peeno Noir.” Which we can’t possibly imagine.
“I think it is more absurd than Peeno Noir,” Burgess said on HuffPost live, referring to a one-man show his character will perform in the upcoming season.
