‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Season 3 Teases ‘30 Rock’-Tier Guest Stars
Two seasons in, we’re used to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt playing the celebrity game. Everyone from Lisa Kudrow to Ice-T has put in the odd appearance, and Season 3 will reach 30 Rock-heights of famous faces, according to mutual star Jane Krakowski.
Speaking at a recent press luncheon with TVLine, Krakowski and the cast offered a few minor hints of the third season, now set for a May 19 premiere. For one – and be wary of minor spoilers – it appears there was good reason for Titus’ “Lemonade” parody against Mikey, while Lillian (Carol Kane) will have moved on from Bobby Durst (Fred Armisen) to a new mystery man. David Cross will return as Jaqueline (Krakowski)’s love interest, but will be far from the only major star this year:
The cast is tight-lipped about naming any A-list names, but Krakowski hints that we’ll definitely recognize some familiar faces: “This year felt a little bit like the height of 30 Rock, when people were asking to come on to do little stunts.”
Depending on where you measure the height of 30 Rock, the third and fourth seasons featured guest stars the likes of Alan Alda, Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Aniston, Peter Dinklage, musicians of the “Kidney Now!” concert, Steve Martin, Oprah Winfrey, Will Ferrell, Buzz Aldrin, Matt Damon, James Franco, Betty White, and of course … Jon Hamm.
We’ll see what Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3 has in store over the coming months, but watch the first teaser below, and stay tuned for the May 19 premiere.
