“This is going to be the best fudging weekend, EVER!”
That’s because Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is on Netflix as of today – April 15 – and we’re super duper excited.
If you’re new to the Kimmy-sphere, here’s what you need to know before you get to binging season 1 so you can catch up with the rest of us…
The hilariously wacky series, created and executive produced by Tina Fey, stars Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt, a woman who escapes after 15 years in a bunker with a doomsday cult and decides to reclaim her life and start over in New York City.
“Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, and a couple of way-past-due library books, she’s ready to take on a world she didn’t even think existed anymore. Wide-eyed but resilient, nothing is going to stand in her way.”
The motley cast of characters who accompany Kimmy on the zany adventures that pepper her new life in the big city include her roommate and friend Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), an actor and singer with big dreams of being on Broadway (his credits include “Peeno Noir“, the runaway hit he performed in season 1); her eccentric landlady Lillian Kaushtupper (Carol Kane); and her former employer, socialite Jacqueline Voorhees (Jane Krakowski).
