7 Ways to Resist This Week

01 Kimmy Schmidt
Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt — Netflix’s unlikely comedy about a woman who navigates life in New York City after years of rape and imprisonment — returns for its third season this weekend. In its new installment, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper), ever the optimist, is striving to attend college and plan a career, after a young-adult lifetime of being denied such opportunities. Complicating the process is her kidnapper, The Reverend, who is demanding a divorce while serving time in prison for his crimes. The irreplaceable Tituss Burgess is back as well to provide some needed levity, performing renditions of songs from Beyonce’s Lemonade but also navigating relationship troubles of his own with his boyfriend, Mikey. Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski) is likewise in the throes of a new love interest with David Cross and has become more of a friend to Kimmy, while Lilian (Carol Kane) immerses herself in local politics. See the trailer below, and binge it on Netflix this weekend.
