Who can turn the world on with her smile? Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Yes, it’s Mary Tyler Moore, or Mary Richards, but also Kimmy Schmidt! Netflix has released a first look video at Season 4 of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and in true “Kimmy” fashion, it’s a music video that pays tribute to “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”’s opening credits.
Set to the original tune “Little Girl, Big City,” composed by Jeff Richmond and written by Sam Means, and sung by Jane Krakowski, the clip follows Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) as she starts her new job as an HR manager at Giztoob. She’s so excited she tosses her had in the air… which gets stuck on a tree, along with the previous, oh, 11 she’s flung. (Get a ladder and get them down, girl!).
But Kimmy’s upbeat mood and the song grind to a halt when her boss Zach (Noah Robbins) tells her she must fire someone. As long as it’s not the cute puppes in the ball pit that’s fine with us, but probably not fine with Kimmy. Maybe she should watch “Up in the Air” for some tips.
The video also gives us a sneak peek at the latest generation of Yuko the robot, now known as C.H.E.R.Y./L., who is on its way to world domination. What could that possibly stand for? If it’s anything like C.H.E.E.S.E. (Computerized Humanoid Electronically Enhanced Secret Enforcer) from “Friends,” we are here for it.
Part 1 of Season 4 of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” drops Wednesday, May 30 on Netflix. In order to be Emmy eligible, the series is releasing the first six episodes by the May 31 deadline, with the remaining seven to follow later this year. Though Netflix has not announced it, Deadline reports that Season 4 will also be the show’s last, with a movie series finale to follow, written by co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
