UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT will return in 2016 for a second season. And while the show will remain on Netflix for its sophomore year, this will be the first season where the season was crafted while everyone knows it’ll air on the streaming site. (Originally, the series was set to air on NBC before they opted not to air it and Netflix stepped in.)

“I think the tone of the show feels set,” co-creator Tina Fey told reporters at the show’s Television Critics Association panel. She noted people have told her they watch the show with their teens/tweens, so to alter it now would jeopardize that.

But there is one freedom the producers are thrilled to have: flexible run times. Network needs had their original season 1 cuts coming in at 20 minutes and 15 seconds, and Fey noted it would often take two days to shave the episodes down to that length. Now, they’ll have the freedom to go beyond that.

“I think it will be very enjoyable for us,” she said. “We have to be our own guides so we don’t get too fat [in time] or slow.”

For the stars, one of the perks of being on Netflix is getting to launch the entire season at once, which felt “a bit like opening night,” Jane Krakowski (Jacqueline) said. “We made the pure product that [the writers] had in mind.”

As fans discovered the show in season 1, a key moment resonated strongly with many: Titus’ (Tituss Burgess) viral song, “Pinot Noir.”

unbre_s1_004_hUNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT — the new comedy from 30 ROCK bosses Tina Fey and Robert Carlock about a woman (Ellie Kemper) who is released from a cult and attempts to make a new life for herself in New York City — was originally intended to air on NBC, but then things took a turn: in late November, it was announced that Netflix would be running the already-shot first season, and the streaming service had also picked up a second season.

“It was probably the fastest that anything good has ever happened to me in this business. Bad things happen real quick all the time,” Carlock said during the show’s TCA panel on Wednesday. “But we were just having conversations with NBC about scheduling and about where we could go and where they could launch us, and it was just a really honest and productive conversation we were having with them about the larger landscape of comedy right now. And we just said, ‘Could we explore other options?’ And [Chief Content Officer for Netflix] Ted [Sarandos] and [Netflix VP, Content Acquisition / Original Series] Cindy [Holland] were in New York, and we met with them two days later, and we had seven shows to show them. And they loved it, and, you know, [NBC Chairman] Bob [Greenblatt] and [NBC’s President of Entertainment] Jen [Salke] were just completely supportive of finding the best place for it to live. It was really kind of an amazing thing.”
