Critics Consensus

Not letting up in season two, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is still odd in the best of ways, wonderfully building on its unique comedy stylings and brilliantly funny cast.

Tv Season Info

Critic Reviews for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (13)

At its best, the series evokes classic 30 Rock (it's hard to think of a higher compliment).

Dec 31, 2016 | Full Review…

From the moment you hear the infectious theme song, you'll be carried into a world of almost singsong dialogue and rapid-fire quips, jokes and references (including a perfect one to Mad Men).

Top Critic

If Kimmy Schmidt could do better, most shows would do worse. Its willingness to go there gives it its wonderfully unhinged luster.

Top Critic

A punchy uneven start to the second, but it does get better, and the cast is still priceless.

Top Critic

Beyond Kimmy's personal issues, Unbreakable continues to highlight some outstanding comedic performances within the ensemble (in addition to a couple of hilarious cameos that are too good to spoil here).

Mar 31, 2016 | Full Review…

If anything, Season 2 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt confronts not only what "unbreakable" means, but also whether or not being unbreakable is even good for you.

Jun 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Season two is so dense with jokes that finishing it doesn't mean you've necessarily caught all of the punchlines.

Dec 31, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

As always the cast here is delightful, especially Kemper and Burgess.

Dec 31, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Season 2 works so well because it reveals the layers in every character surrounding Kimmy, as well, in a focused, coherent way that augments her story rather than detracting from it.

Dec 31, 2016 | Full Review…

Netflix's other nice girl Kimmy Schmidt, whose bright smile and eager embrace of the world is intensely optimistic.

Audience Reviews for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 2

  • Jan 04, 2019
    "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" builds on its established quirky comedy in S2 with more cameos, impressively deep jokes, and an outstanding ensemble cast that are so over-the-top in the most entertaining way.
  • Dec 16, 2018
    I wouldn't urge you not to watch it, but don't have expectations of it being even close to half as good as season one. What are the writers thinking? It's lost 90% of its value.
  • Dec 16, 2018
    Funny, but not enough to keep me watching.
  • Jun 19, 2018
    The funniest show since Seinfeld. I won't miss an episode!
  • May 21, 2017
    Season 1 was amazing, I laugh so hard. Every time i watch it I still laugh out loud and miss some jokes. Now season 2 is funny compared to a funeral but compared to season 1 it sucks.
  • May 12, 2017
    The show definitely hit a sophomore slump, extremely disappointed . It wasn't even half as funny as the first season. Hoping for a comeback in Season 3
  • May 05, 2017
    Una regular temporada,las nuevas historias secundarias como la del novio de Tituss no aportan nada a la trama principal. Lo que antes sorprendia, en esta fue poco mas que una carcajada
  • Jan 03, 2017
    Brilliant! Not for all audiences.

    Hilarious comedy thanks to an excellent cast and show runners who clearly used to be on "30 Rock". Ellie Kemper is instantly endearing in the title role, naive but never stupid and you always find yourself rooting for her. She gets great support from the rest of the cast, from Jane Krakowski as her socialite boss to the great Carol Kane as her crazy landlord. The breakout, though, is Titus Burgess as Titus, Kimmy's flamboyantly gay roommate who steals every scene, whether working as a singing werewolf in a horror themed restaurant to making everyone imagine he's wearing a cape when he walks away. Behind the camera, the show runners capture that zany "30 Rock" vibe, with suitors showing up for Kimmy with live dolphins (because she likes them) and crazy celebrity cameos & guest stars, ranging from Jon Hamm to Jeff Goldblum. Overall, a great addition to Netflix and one of the funnier sitcoms in recent years.

    Back and (somehow) even better, Tina Fey brings back the four odd, albeit stereotypical characters for a second season of witty satire, wacky stories and the casts infectious enthusiasm and charm. Cannot wait for season 3 of this perfect comedy series.
