“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is getting ready to kick off season 4. Today, Netflix announced guest stars for the upcoming final season.
Yes, last week Deadline reported that the quirky comedy will end its run with a movie. The first six episodes will be released May 30, with the final seven coming later.
The series follows Kimmy Schmidt, a woman who is rescued after spending 15 years as a captive in an underground bunker. After she is rescued, she uses her trademark optimism and cheerful attitude to rebuild her life in New York City. There she meets a zany new group of friends.
Ellie Kemper plays the title role with Tituss Burgess playing her lovably overdramatic roommate, Titus Andromeddon. Both have earned Emmy nominations for their roles.
Jane Krakowski also stars as Ellie’s boss-turned-friend in a role that also scored her a nomination. Carol Kane rounds out the main cast as Lillian, Kimmy and Titus’ eccentric landlady.
The first three seasons included guest appearances by Jon Hamm and Tina Fey, who were nominated for their guest work. Fey also co-created the series. Other guests to pop in are Amy Sedaris, Josh Charles, Tim Blake Nelson, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, Kenan Thompson, Lisa Kudrow and Jeff Goldblum, among many, many others.
The revealed guests so far include:
BUSY PHILIPPS (406) plays Sheba Goodman, a hard-living heiress who has seemingly turned over a new leaf. She is the daughter of Artie Goodman (Peter Riegert), and her inheritance hinges on convincing her family that she’s stable enough to control her own finances.
GREG KINNEAR (401) plays himself (sort of). The affable star drops his son off at school one morning and finds himself caught up in one of Titus’s elaborate schemes to win back his ex-boyfriend, Mikey.
BOBBY MOYNIHAN (403, 405) plays Fran Dodd, a men’s rights activist. As founder and “C.F.Bro” of The Innocence Broject, Fran leads the resistance in the “war on men,” which includes trying to clear the Reverend’s name.
AIDY BRYANT (403) plays Tabby Bobatti, the Reverend’s willfully ignorant ex-girlfriend. She lived with the Reverend the whole time he was keeping the Mole Women in his underground bunker, and Kimmy doesn’t take that revelation lying down.
JON HAMM (403) returns as Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, Kimmy’s former kidnapper, who is now serving a life sentence in an Indiana prison. When a fan from his old DJ days visits him in prison, the Reverend seizes the opportunity to reopen his case.
AMY SEDARIS (406) returns as Mimi Kanassis, Jacqueline’s unhinged divorcée friend. When Jacqueline needs an assistant for her burgeoning but under-funded talent agency, Mimi leaps at the opportunity.
MIKE CARLSEN (401) returns as Titus’s ex-boyfriend, the recently out construction worker Mikey Politano. Titus set Mikey free to stretch his wings as a gay man last season, but he is done waiting patiently for Mikey to come to his senses and come back to him.
ZOSIA MAMET (405) returns as Sue Thompsteen, the hipster harbinger of gentrification in East Dogmouth. Her enthusiasm for the latest, trendiest new thing leads her directly into an elaborate scam run by Jacqueline and Lillian.
DEREK KLENA (403) returns as Douglas, aka DJ Fingablast. When he seeks out the Reverend (aka DJ Slizzard) to spin at his wedding, it quickly turns into a “Making a Murderer”-style documentary.
