Season two of Tina Fey's Netflix comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been given an official release date.

According to Netflix, the series will return on April 15th.

For the second season, you can expect some heavier stuff, according to Fey.

Kimmy has to deal with "deeper emotional life issues she has to deal with," she said at Sunday's Television Critics Association's panel for the show.

But it will still be a show you can watch with your kids.

"We became aware just anecdotally, that we have a very young audience. We wanted to make sure that even if we went towards more difficult ideas, you could still watch it with a 12 or 13-year-old audience. The original pilot a long long time ago was a little bit darker. We were right to tip it in the direction that we did. As a mom I would hate to put on the second season and it's like ... prison sex. I mean that has it's place," she said.

And right after they confirmed a season two premiere date, Netflix announced that the series has already been picked up for a third season.

The series, from 30 Rock executive producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, stars Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Carol Kane, and Jane Krakowski.
