Netflix announced that “The Unbroken Kimmy Schmitz” series finale will be the last season of the show before it goes to an end.
The news was first reported by Recode, which said the decision was made by the network and Netflix.
Netflix declined to comment.
Netflix previously announced that the show would end in 2021 after six seasons, but the showrunner, Amy Poehler, tweeted Monday that the final season would likely not happen until 2022, which is the same date that Netflix officially ends its relationship with Kimmy, a comedian and actress best known for her role as Kimmy Schrute on the Netflix series.
“I just feel like we can’t keep on,” Poehler tweeted.
“She’s done this to us so much.”
Kimmy also has two other shows in the works: the first of which will be a biopic on the late comedian, titled “The Life & Times of Kimmy,” which will follow her as she transitioned from comedian to mother-of-three and began appearing on her own show.
That show will also be a follow-up to her 2014 film, “The Secret Life of Kimmie Schmidt.”
In an interview with Variety, Poehler said that the writers were trying to keep her “fresh and present” in a way that “she never had before,” adding that her family was a “very important part of what we did.”
“We were very much thinking about how to keep Kimmy Kimmy and the people that made her who she is and not just the show itself,” Poehlster said.
The final season of “The New Normal” will air on the cable channel in the fall, and the first episode of the first season of Kimmey will be available on the service in early 2018.
Netflix’s announcement comes at a particularly tumultuous time for the network, which has struggled to attract viewers during a long stretch of decline.
The network lost its third-biggest subscriber in three years, and has struggled with falling ad revenue and other challenges as it grapples with the impact of the Brexit vote and President Donald Trump.
In October, Netflix said that its subscriber base was dropping by 7% for the year to date, and that it has fallen from 8 million to 5 million subscribers.
