ith the new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fast approaching, I decided to take a look at the previous two seasons again in the run up to season 3. In season 1 we meet Kimmy, an overly optimistic and naive young woman who had been kept hostage in a bunker by an insane preacher for 15 years since she was 15 years old – having spent half of her life underground, now dubbed as a ‘Mole Woman’.
Stuck in her 80's ways, life in modern day New York became challenging for Kimmy, but that did not stop her from being the fun-loving goofball we have all come to know and love. Having to learn what the most simple and ordinary things are for the first time, lead to some hilarious moments as we get to see this strange new world through Kimmy's eyes as she sees things in an innocent, childlike wonder.
In season 2 we see Kimmy becoming savvier about things compared to the previous season however, she still has a lot to learn. She takes a job as an Uber driver and meets a drunk therapist (Co-creator, Tine Fey) one evening leading to an odd relationship between the two while she helps her previous boss and now friend, get accustomed to living in less luxury than she has been used to.
Although we don’t know too much about season 3 yet, if the past two seasons are anything to go by, we’re in for a treat on May 19th. So, get your popcorn ready and settle in for a night of binge watching!
Kimmy Schmidt will be streaming all episodes of the new season on Netflix on May 19th.
