Fudge yeah, we are getting more "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

Those who has been mourning the loss of the quirky Netflix series after the end of its fourth season in January can take heart.

Creator and executive producer Tina Fey announced Wednesday during an Emmys' "FYSEE" panel that Netflix will be releasing an as-yet-untitled interactive special based on the show.

"We're thrilled to announce that we're about to start production on an all-new Interactive 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' special, set to debut on Netflix in 2020," Fey said.

" ' Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' was one of the first original comedy series on Netflix, and now it will be its first interactive comedy event."

Fey added, "Fans will be able to make choices on behalf of our characters, taking different story paths with, of course, different jokes. I think it's a great fit for our show and will be a great way to officially complete the series."

The show was centered around the lovably naive Kimmy Schmidt, played by Ellie Kemper, who emerges after having been held captive with other women for years to take on life in New York

Kemper talked to CNN last year about ending her show.

"We were filming the fourth season, and we found out as we were filming it that it would be the final season," Kemper said.

"In (the) streaming age, that is actually like a fully lived life and feels like we had a lot of episodes given the world we live in now. But it still felt sad because I love these characters, I love the people I get to work with and so it's just a little bit of a loss."
