Are you ready to laugh at some salad? No? Then I doubt you’re ready for the weirdness that is Season 4 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Yeah, I know. Crazy, right? It’s been roughly three years since that first season hit, and the high concept series has had a fairly long and healthy life on the streaming service, filling the void that 30 Rock left all those years ago (though it’ll never fill it completely).

Despite its strange nature, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a series that has largely succeeded because it has allowed its characters to grow over time. The first season told the story of a girl who learned to live in the city after being trapped in a bomb shelter for many years. It’s a premise that’s interesting on its surface, but given the comedic nature of the show, one that could have resulted in flat characters.

However, they’ve avoided this by giving Kimmy a specific growth over the course of its run. Its first season chronicled her getting over her kidnapping, its second season covered the complicated relationship she had with her mother, and the third season finally saw her going to college and really growing into adulthood (though I’d argue that they kind of fell off the quality bandwagon in that weird season).

With this new season, I really hope they dive back into the more character-driven aspects of the show and give a chance for them to thrive outside of the goofy one-liners. If they do that, I think they’ll be well on their way to a stronger season.
