Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has proven to be a big hit for Netflix. Going into its third season, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper ) has been the shows main attraction. However, the real fan favorite is Titus Andromedon ( Tituss Burgess ), who always manages the steal the spotlight away from the rest of the cast.
We’ve always know Titus to be very eccentric and outgoing, and that’s what people love about him. As a hopeful actor trying to find work, Titus always seems to draw the short stick. His acting talents may never bring him fame and fortune, but yet he still never gives up his goal of becoming a household name.
That’s a trait that I particularly admire about Titus. While I don’t necessarily see myself in him, I do love his drive to come out on top. And while Titus may give up at times, he’s always coming right back and continuing his fight.
We saw a different Titus in Season 2. After he met Mikey, there seemed to be little pep to his step. Of course, as things got to serious he considered walking away, but he didn’t. The relationship with Mikey gave Titus new hope that he could accomplish his dream of being famous, and Mikey pushed him towards that.
At the end of Season 2 we saw Titus make his way to Titusville, Florida. Looking for a sign, he choose not to take an acting gig on a cruise ship. Hopefully, this impromptu trip to Florida gives Titus a little more motivation to not only give up on his acting, but also develop a future with Mikey.
We’ve seen the teaser for Kimmy Schmidt season 3. Titus is front and center, doing a Beyonce impression. This was very reminiscent of his pinot noir performance and music video from season 1. It’s obvious he’s going to be the same Titus we’ve grown to love, but will we finally see a less selfish, and caring, Titus Andromedon?
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt releases its third season on May 19th. There are plenty of questions to be answered, especially after last season surprise twist. However, the progression of Titus will be something to keep an eye on all season. He’s one of the best characters on the show, and there is no denying that.
