All 13 half-hour episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season three are now available to stream exclusively on Netflix, as well as the first two seasons. Season four will premiere on Wednesday, May 30, with six episodes.

The fifth season of Netflix's revived comedy series Arrested Development is slated to premiere later this month, but much like the controversial fourth season of the show, not everything you want is going to be there at the same time. The first eight episodes will be released on May 29 but the next eight will be released later, but it's not clear if that will be in 2018 or if it'll be pushed into 2019.

In the first trailer for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 4, our favorite mole woman steps into the working world, where she deals with white privilege, #MeToo, and not knowing the words to Rebecca Black's "Friday". Unlike previous seasons, the final one will be split in two parts with the first half of the season airing May 30 and the second half later this year.

But the move has traditionally been unusual for streaming services.

Browns to be featured team on HBO's 'Hard Knocks,' report says
Since its debut in 2001, the series has given a behind-the-scenes look at National Football League teams' preparation for the upcoming season.

Also, as SlashFilm reports, the fact that Netflix is only releasing half of the latest season of Arrested Development suggests the remainder of the episodes aren't ready yet.

On the next Arrested Development...

The trailer for season 5, which comes five years after the Bluth family last graced our screens, shows a new and improved family - so improved, in fact, that they're apparently receiving the Family of the Year award (that they're giving themselves). The series also recently confirmed that Jeffrey Tambor would be returning for season five, despite sexual misconduct allegations that led to his firing from Amazon's Transparent.
