'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' season 4: Carol Kane aka Lilian says more stories remain untold, 'Maybe we'll get to do a movie'
Fans can expect a lot of “unexpected, interesting twists,”that lead up to the wonderful wrap-ups for each character's stories in season 4B of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt', affirms Carol Kane Kane.
The Tina Fey and Robert Carlock comedy ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ starring Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane and Jane Krakowski will be airing its very last season on Friday, January 25. And, much like us fans of the Netflix comedy, Kane, who plays the hilarious Lilian on the show, also believes that the story could have gone on for much further than season 4B.
“[The show] could have absolutely gone on longer,” said the legendary actress, adding, “I know they had lot more stories to tell – Tina and Robert. I know they had a lot more stories to tell, and the characters are so alive. I know that they had a lot more that they could do, maybe we will get to do a movie.”
That being said, Kane also recognizes the show has beautifully wrapped up the individual storylines of the four main characters – her own Lilian Kaushtupper, Kimmy Cougar Schmidt, Titus Andromedon and Jacqueline White. “I am very impressed about how Robert and Tina wrapped up the season, because I think that each of the four of us got such a specific, dignified wrap-up. Each of us really came into our own dignity and power as the show wrapped up and I think that is kind of magnificent,” explained Kane.
Fans can expect a lot of “unexpected, interesting twists,” that lead up to the wonderful wrap-ups for each character's stories, affirmed Kane, who believes each of them come to their own in the last season. As fans saw at the end of season 4A, all four of these characters are on their personal journeys, with Titus finally seeing an upward curve in his career – without any help from a pervy, old puppet.
Kimmy is figuring out what she can do with her life to be of service to others and also be happy with what she does. Jacqueline is a business woman learning she can be rich all on her own, and Lilian is dealing with life after Artie Goodman (Peter Riegert). Season 4B will see where these individual journeys take them.
As always, they will help each other through tough times and through these “unexpected, interesting twists,” which makes for some great scenes. Clearly Kane shared in the sentiment. “I have to say I enjoy interacting with all of the characters because we are all so different and well-defined. I had a lot of fun with Peter Riegert also, who plays Artie Goodman and I always have fun with Titus and Jacqueline. The reason it works so well is because the characters are written in such a way that each of them is so specific and so different from each other.”
We cannot say we disagree. The chemistry between Lilian, Kimmy, Titus and Jacqueline can be seen again in season 4B of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ which will premiere January 25 via Netflix.
