The announcement was met with much rejoicing from Arrested Development fans, even those of us who weren't totally in love with season four: if nothing else, season five would bring the show's various characters back in steady contact with one another, and that's something we could all agree on as a plus.

Kimmy Schmidt is facing some tough issues. Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, Sam Means, Jeff Richmond and David Miner executive produce the comedy. That's not an easy balance, but Kimmy pulled it off, primarily thanks to the lead performance of Ellie Kemper. After the aimlessness of Season 3, I dig it! In all honesty, the show feels as if it's run its course, which is probably why season 4 will be the final season. The first six episodes of the fourth season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt premieres Wednesday, May 30 on Netflix.

The Bluth family will be back on Netflix on May 29 with the premiere of Arrested Development season 5. The remaining seven episodes will launch at a later date. Will season 4 be able to recapture the magic of season 1? Meanwhile, Titus (Tituss Burgess) is back to his journey through the NY entertainment world, this time with the once-again-single Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski) as his agency representation.

This season finds Kimmy trying to do more in the world of work, with a job as the human resources person for a tech start-up.

In addition to Moynihan, this season's roster of drop-ins includes Busy Phillips, Aidy Bryant, Greg Kinnear, Amy Sedaris, Zosia Mamet, and the return of Jon Hamm. All the while, Lillian continues to do whatever it takes to "disrupt" and "burst the paradigm".
