Netflix's original programming is quickly taking over the television landscape and with critically acclaimed shows like Stranger Things, The OA and Orange Is The New Black all returning with new seasons, how could we forget about Netflix's funniest comedy? We already knew that Kimmy Schmidt would be returning for more hilarious escapades but due to leading actress Ellie Kempler's pregnancy we had no idea when we would actually get the third season.

Now, Netflix has officially announced that the third season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be released on Friday, May 19th. How fudging awesome is that, fellow Kimmy fans? The fun doesn't stop there as Netflix has already given us a little teaser to tide us over until the premiere date.

The Netflix comedy has already been nominated for a string of awards and has been called "the first greatest sitcom of the streaming era". Unlike other streaming comedies, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has all of the nostalgic warmth of sitcoms from the '90s and has featured a host of guest stars including John Hamm, Lisa Kudrow and Tina Fey.

What That Shocking Season 2 Revelation Will Mean For Kimmy And Her Friends

The second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt tied up several storylines and culminated with a thanksgiving dinner between Kimmy, Lillian and Jacqueline. However, before they could give thanks, viewers found out something rather shocking. The reverend, who is now in prison for kidnapping Kimmy and the other bunker girls, is actually married to Kimmy. Yeah, I'm still struggling to cope with that.

Just when Kimmy thought she had left that part of her life behind, it comes back to bite her. Moreover, Kimmy is usually very honest about the things that have happened to her so it's a bit worrying that she hasn't confided in one of her friends — it's not like Jacqueline would judge her. Perhaps Kimmy forgot about the marriage or maybe since the marriage took place in the bunker then it's not actually a real marriage? Either way, it's going to be hard to confirm or deny that this happened and it's definitely reopened old wounds for our favorite unintentionally funny lady.

As much as we love Kimmy, so much of the shows charm comes from the supporting characters. Where would we be without Jacqueline's quips or Lillian's backstories, or Titus' habit for making everything about himself? It wouldn't be very entertaining without this wonderful troupe of characters to tell Kimmy what she's doing wrong now would it?

Jacqueline had a bit of a revelation during the second season of the show and realized that she actually has what it takes to fall in love with an unattractive man — shocker — and this scared her. Will Jacqueline's evolution continue into the third season or will she have reverted to her former shallow — yet somehow flawless — former self? I guess we'll have to wait and see. Actress Jane Krakowski does a phenomenal job at keeping the comedy coming and, just like she did in Ally McBeal, steals every scene that she is in.

Lillian and Titus also went on somewhat of a character journey in Season 2, with Titus falling in love with Mickey and Lillian stepping up her efforts to preserve the essence of their New York neighborhood. The big question for Season 3 is whether or not they will continue on this path. Titus, like Jacqueline, has never really been in love before and we're totally shipping him and Mickey — let's hope they stay together. By the looks of the above teaser trailer, their relationship is as hilarious as ever.

We couldn't be more excited that Kimmy Schmidt's return is mere months away. The young woman may not have had much success in the past, but ever since she escaped the bunker her life has went from strength to strength and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her and her colourful friends. Like the theme song would say, it's a miracle.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 hits Netflix on Friday, May 19th. Are you excited to see Kimmy and her friends again? Tell me in the comment section below.
