Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was renewed for a third season before the second dropped, but how many seasons could Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt reach? Showrunner Robert Carlock, whose executive produced and written one-and-a-half episodes of season two, has told The Hollywood Reporter that the series finale is unforeseen:
It’s a show that suggests, in our minds, some kind of lifetime. It’s not The Simpsons — it can’t go forever.I think what the core of the show is, is what it means for Kimmy to be OK. A big part of season two is her learning that she probably has to accept that she’ll never be that 14-year-old before she was kidnapped again, as much as she would like to convince herself that she could be. So what is her end point? I want her to have everything and for her to be happy. What would it take to get there? I don’t know how many years that is. Hopefully Netflix will let us figure that out. There’s a sort of tiny, visual subplot throughout the season this year where you see those robot servants from the first season start to pop up in the background as if people are buying them. They now work at restaurants and they are nannies and stuff. My opinion is that by season eight, those robots are at war with mankind, the apocalypse is actually happening, the reverend was right, and Kimmy has to lead mankind against the robot armies.
