They're splitting Kimmy in half! Hasn't she been through enough?!
On Valentine's Day, Netflix revealed
a cool "Black Mirror" treat the premiere date for Ellie Kemper's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" Season 4. Turns out, the streaming service is releasing the series in two parts.
According to Deadline, the first six episodes arrive May 30, and the second half will arrive later in 2018.

She's split in two parts so they can still qualify for the Emmys this season. May 31 is the deadline to submit for September's awards. Clever girls❗️— Jack Feria (@jack_feria) February 14, 2018
If they really are doing it for Emmy reasons, good for them. Kemper and, especially, Tituss Burgess are overdue. But every other season has released all 13 episodes around or before May 30 -- Season 1 arrived March 6, 2015; Season 2 on April 15, 2016; and Season 3 on May 19, 2017. So why change now? Maybe they got a late start for production but still wanted to qualify for the 2018 Emmys.
Anyway, here's looking forward to the partial nonsense coming on May 30.
