The Tina Fey-comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is returning for its second season on April 15 on Netflix. This time around, the comedy is being produced for Netflix, and not NBC, which was the case for the first season. According to a report in Vanity Fair, the second season of the comedy series takes a "shock and awe" approach to comedy, which works for some people, but not all.
The first season introduced the lead female character, Kimmy Schmidt (played by Ellie Kemper), a 29-year old woman who is rebuilding her life in New York City after being rescued from a doomsday cult where she was being held up for 15 years. She starts her new life in the challenging city of New York where she befriends a wannabe Broadway actor Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) who becomes her roommate and works for a fallen socialite Jacqueline Voorhees (Jane Krakowski). As she attempts to build her new life, she encounters many people and gets into situations that can be both ridiculous and hilarious at times. According to the Vanity Fair report, while Kimmy has spent some time outside the bunker already, the situations she gets herself in and the people she meets are still sometimes incredible. Season 2, according to Vanity Fair will take a look at "gentrification, gay romance, race and other social matters" as is expected of a Tina Fey-Robert Carlock comedy.
In a report in Variety, Ellie Kemper is interviewed about what fans can expect in the second season. She talked about her character and how she is "grappling with right vs. wrong, black vs. white, gray areas of life." She also described the coming season as one that is about "a lot of acceptance that a lot of stuff is out of her control. Without losing her optimism, she's accepting the reality of the world." She also mentioned that the end of season 2 will have an "excellent cliffhanger" especially since the show has been renewed for a third season. more >>

"I believe God is our Father, the Creator, Somebody that gives us purpose and destiny," Osteen, who pastors one of the largest churches in America, responds. "Sometimes it's hard for people to say 'how can I believe in something I can't see?' But it's what you choose to believe, through faith."

Kim Kardashian comes in with a reputation of showing everything she's got online, and we mean everything. When she posted another nude selfie about a month ago, it was something that came in as normal, but when she started ranting in Twitter, now that's something new.
The Kardashians are one of the most recognizable families in the entertainment industry, thanks to their hit reality TV series. But they aren't necessarily famous for all the good things, except for Kim who generally avoids hitting and bashing fans online and in social media. So when she suddenly took on Twitter to slam her critics, the question is why now?
As it turns out, it really isn't about Kim suddenly changing her mood. The reason why she slammed those who criticized her nude selfie via Twitter is because she had the support of her more confrontational sister, Khloe. more >>

Fox has renewed its Golden Globe-nominated sitcom "New Girl" for a sixth season, officially making it the network's longest-running live-action comedy.
"New Girl" stars Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day, a quirky teacher living in a loft with three young men, Nick (Jake Johnson), Winston (Lamorne Morris), and Schmidt (Max Greenfield). After five seasons on air, it remains the top-rated comedy on Fox, even though it had to bring in other actors to fill in the void left by Deschanel, who went on maternity leave, this season. In Deschanel's absence, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" star Megan Fox was brought in as a character named Reagan, who temporarily took Jess' room in the loft as the latter was away on jury duty.
Deschanel's season 5 leave of absence, something that may have initially worried the show's producers considering that Jess is the titular "new girl," also proved that the show could play around with various formats and schedules. After a long hiatus, "New Girl" returned at a new time slot but still managed to maintain its viewership. more >>
