It seems the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which stars Ellie Kemper, is coming to an end. Netflix earlier today released first-look images from the new season, which are featured in this story, along with a Mary Tyler Moore-flavored promo (you can watch it below). The streaming service swooped in and picked up the single-camera comedy, originally piloted and given a 13-episode series order by NBC, with a two-season pickup ahead of its debut on the broadcast network.

In a press release sent out by Netflix on Thursday (May 3), the platform gave fans a first look at the new season which features the ever cheerful Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) making her way to the first day of her new job as HR manager of Giztoob.

When last we saw Kimmy Schmidt, she had failed out of/quit/gotten an honorary degree from Columbia University and was faced with the prospect of starting the next chapter in her life.

According to the outlet Netflix is now in talks with Universal Television to produce a movie to close out the series in lieu of a traditional finale.

Though season 4 might mark the end of the series, it may not be the last time we see Kimmy, Titus, and the rest of the gang.

The popular comedy was created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. If plans for a movie go through, Fey and Carlock would begin working on it after they wrap on the series' current season.

Indeed, the show was the first original half hour series to appear on the streaming giant.

Deadline is reporting that the popular Netflix series will be ending after the upcoming fourth season, which premieres on May 30th.
