SitcomsOnline Digest: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to End After Four Seasons; Last Man Standing Closer to Making a Return

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we're hearing about the end of a popular Netflix series, more about the reboot of Last Man Standing, and more. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
  • The Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be coming to an end after the upcoming fourth season, and will potentially end with a movie to tie things up (four seasons and a movie?). (Deadline)
  • The rumors are getting real, it looks like Last Man Standing will be coming back and airing on Fox, although it isn't clear how exactly it will fit into their lineup. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Jeffrey Tambor was infamously fired from his own series, Transparent, but that isn't stopping him from returning for the fifth season of Arrested Development. (Entertainment Weekly)
  • ABC's American Idol reboot isn't the most talked about thing on TV (as the series was in the very early years on Fox), but it's still a solid performer and will return next year for a second season on ABC. (Variety
  • Bill Cosby's name can no longer be found on the Television Academy's Hall of Fame website. (Los Angeles Times)
  • Will it be renewed or canceled? Here are some predictions from our weekly Fri-Yay feature. (SitcomsOnline)
