Tina and Robert Carlock were interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the final episodes of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’. You can read the entire interview below:
The co-creators of the NBC-turned-Netflix comedy series also talk about the advantages of streaming and whether they’d make another series for such a platform, and break down some of the other big moments in the last six episodes.
[The following story contains spoilers for the second half of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s fourth and final season.]
When Tina Fey and Robert Carlock created Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, it was for their 30 Rock home NBC. But before the series’ premiered it moved from NBC to Netflix, where Fey and Carlock made an additional three seasons, the last of which was split into two halves, with the final six episodes dropping last Friday.
The series has been a perennial awards contender and seemingly found a significant following online (Netflix, like other streamers, famously doesn’t release viewership information), but speaking with The Hollywood Reporter after wrapping production on her first streaming series, Fey remains a little perplexed by how people can watch an entire season in one weekend.
“It’s interesting, you hear from people, ‘Oh, yeah, I watched them all this weekend,'” she says. “And it’s a little bit like being a chef and hearing like, ‘No, I ate everything. I ate everything the restaurant had. I threw up everywhere, but it was good.'”
