Netflix released a first look at their newest interactive special on Wednesday, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” aired its series finale on Netflix over a year ago, but the show is coming back next month with “Kimmy vs. the Reverend,” a special episode that will allow viewers to choose the outcome, EW reported.

“Three states! Explosions! A dancing hamburger! And you, the viewer, get to decide how the story goes,” Netflix said in a press release, according to CNN.

The show’s cast will be joined by “Harry Potter” actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is taking a role in the special as Prince Frederick Windsor, a member of the British family who is 12th in line to the throne, according to EW.

The storyline of the special involves Kimmy (played by Ellie Kemper) preparing for her wedding while also facing off against the cult leader that once kidnapped her, Rev. Dr. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The format of the show will be similar to Netflix’s “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.” Vewers can make choices for different characters that will lead to different storylines, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Kimmy vs. the Reverend” will premiere on Netflix on May 12, according to EW.
