The long-awaited interactive special of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be available to watch on-demand on Netflix on Tuesday 12th May.


The special, titled Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend, will see Jon Hamm reprise his role as Rev. Dr. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, the man who held Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) captive in his doomsday cult for over a decade.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will also guest star, playing a character called “Frederick”.

In a teaser for the special released on Netflix’s ‘See What’s Next’ Twitter account, we see a determined Kimmy face down the incarcerated Reverend, formerly of Savior Rick’s Spooky Church of the Scary Apocalypse.

Following on from the pioneering Bandersnatch, the episode will utilise Netflix’s interactive technology and allow viewers to pick the characters’ choices, which each lead a differing story path.

Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakow­ski and Carol Kane will all reprise their roles in the comedy-drama special.
