Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

After 15 years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy is rescued along with three other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the "Today" show. Before getting back on the bus to Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it's time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Renewed

Netflix announced today that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes ahead of the comedy's second season premiere, which is scheduled for April 15.
Produced by Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars Ellie Kemper as a woman starting her life over after escaping from a doomsday cult. The show was originally headed to NBC until being sold to Netflix back in 2014.
Today marks the first official renewal for the series, which was given a two-season order right off the bat when Netflix first acquired it.

    The first name of Jacqueline's stepdaughter, Xanthippe, is a nod to showrunner Tina Fey's Greek heritage. "Xanthippe" is an ancient Greek name, belonging to several minor figures in Greek mythology, as well as to the historical wife of the philosopher Socrates. The character of Xanthippe in "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is depicted as an extremely difficult and contrary adolescent; the little that appears in Ancient Greek literature about the historical Xanthippe also implies that she was both extremely young when she married Socrates and that she had a difficult and argumentative personality. In Xenophon's Symposium, Antisthenes says that Socrates called his wife "the hardest to get along with of all the women there are," though Socrates also says that he specifically wanted a wife who had a challenging personality, which was the reason he chose Xanthippe. The name literally means "yellow horse" ("xanthos" meaning blonde/yellow and "hippos" meaning horse).
