The first six episodes of the new season will be released on May 30 with the second half of the season to premiere later in 2018. It stars Ellie Kemper, Carol Kane, Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski. In a study released by Netflix a few months ago, the streaming service identified Kimmy Schmidt as coming in at No. 15 in its list of the Top 20 Netflix shows that viewers "binge-raced" (i.e., watched an entire season of a show within 24 hours of its release).

Production on Season 4 had been delayed while creator Tina Fey and her composer-husband Jeff Richmond, who also composes, directs and produces "Kimmy", worked on the upcoming "Mean Girls" musical.

"We're going to shoot them and get them out as quickly as possible so we don't have to make our fans and audiences wait so long", she explained on the show. The second half of the show will instead premiere at a later date in 2018. The remaining six episodes will then launch sometime later this year.
