Netflix dropped Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 on May 19th and fans have been eating it up ever since.

It’s definitely the best season yet (check out our top 10 moments from the season) and now the star Ellie Kemper is dishing on the inspiration and how Kimmy has evolved.

If you haven’t finished the season yet, warning: spoilers ahead.

Speaking with the A.V. Club, Kemper talked about one of the most pivotal moments in the season: when Kimmy decides not to share her story with the world. Kemper said,

“I think that she is so ready to give over everything so that she can help other people, but if she were to do that, there would be nothing left over for her to keep on going. I think that’s a good realization to have.”

While the season is relatively apolitical, Kimmy Schmidt doesn’t pass up the opportunity poke fun at millennial “snowflakes” who are too concerned with the right and wrong way of doing things.

While in college, Kimmy discovers the college version of feminism, which is really not so feminist at all.

“These grownups who are being so careful not to offend anyone all the time, are babies. If you think about what she went through and what these guys are going through they are so different in gravity. It seems maybe ridiculous. She probably feels at the end of the day—whether she realizes it or not—that it’s ridiculous.”

Other than that, the show refreshingly avoids the current political climate – which is such a nice change in a world where everything seems to be Trump all the time. Although don’t think we didn’t notice that Trump “You are a loser” poster near the end!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has continued to mature over the last fee years and we can’t wait to see what they have in store next.

Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel (by far!), but when she's not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.
