'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs the Reverend': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Netflix's interactive special
Ellie Kemper returns in her role of the indomitable Kimmy Schmidt
Ellie Kemper's Kimmy Schmidt, a woman of indomitable spirit, is set to reprise her role in Netflix's upcoming 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs The Reverend'. The interactive special ended its four-season run in January, but creator Tina Fey soon announced that they were working on an interactive session just like Netflix's 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch'.
'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' took no time in becoming a hot favorite among audiences earning 18 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series for each of its four seasons.
The upcoming interactive event follows Kimmy as she prepares for her wedding. But she soon discovers that her former captor Reverend Richard (Jon Hamm) is hiding another group of women in an underground bunker - just like hers - and off she goes to rescue them. Will she succeed? Well, it is up to you!
Here is everything you need to know about the interactive event.
'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend' will premiere on Netflix on May 12, 2020.
According to the official synopsis of the interactive special, "Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) sets off on her biggest adventure yet. Three states! Explosions! A dancing hamburger! And you, the viewer, get to decide how the story goes. Will you defeat the Reverend (Jon Hamm) and get Kimmy to her wedding on time? Or will you accidentally start a war against the robots? So grab your remote and a tray of delicious scrod, ‘cause Kimmy’s got her own Netflix interactive special!"
The special stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, Carol Kane, and Jon Hamm reprising their roles from the first four seasons of the series. Daniel Radcliffe, Sara Chase, Lauren Adams, Donna Maria, Amy Sedaris, Michael Carlsen, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Jack McBrayer and Johnny Knoxville also star alongside them.
Created and executive produced by Tina Fey ('Saturday Night Live', '30 Rock') and Robert Carlock ('Saturday Night Live', 'Friends', '30 Rock').
In addition to Fey and Carlock, Jeff Richmond ('30 Rock'), Sam Means ('The Daily Show', '30 Rock'), Meredith Scardino ('30 Rock') and David Miner ('30 Rock', 'Master of None', 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine') also serve as executive producers.
You can watch the official trailer here:
What will you have Kimmy do? Will you let her make out with her fiance or wait for an Uber? What if your decisions end up killing the protagonist altogether? No worries, because there is always the option of a do-over. The choices are endless and quite silly but hey, Kimmy doesn't care as long as the ride is fun!
It was last year that the news of the interactive special started doing the rounds. And soon afterwards, it was announced that the cast was going to expand to include Daniel Radcliffe.
