We have some big news for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fans: The show is adding a new face, and we honestly can’t wait. Busy Philipps will appear in Season 4 of the Netflix show, which means that it’s going to be even more amazing than it already has been. A difficult feat to accomplish!
There aren’t many details out about Philipps’ role in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt just yet, unfortunately. We aren’t sure who her character is, what she’ll be doing, or how long she’ll be on the show. But it doesn’t matter, because whatever she does is going to be pure gold. Philipps is a great actress, and her social media profiles show off her hilarious and relatable personality. If her character is anything like who she is in real life, she just might steal the show away from Kimmy, Jacqueline, Titus, and Lillian.
Philipps broke the news herself in an Instagram post on April 4th. In the photo, she’s posing next to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt co-star Carol Kane, who plays Lillian. Philips wrote, “How lucky am I to get to work with this ICON???” Netflix has yet to comment about the casting.
This isn’t the first time Philipps has worked with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt co-creator Tina Fey.
Fey produced Sackett Sisters, an NBC pilot that was supposed to star Philipps and Casey Wilson, in 2017. Sadly, the show never made it off the ground. Even with its amazing cast, it didn’t land a spot on NBC’s 2017-18 schedule. It wasn’t for lack of talent; NBC just said they had too many shows. So we can’t wait to see Philips on Netflix!
Already excited for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to return? The first half of Season 4 is coming to Netflix on Wednesday, May 30th. It’s unclear whether Philipps will be in the first half or the second, but we’re hoping for both!
