Netflix Emmy Winning ‘Russian Doll’ With Natasha Lyonne Season Two Trailer Drops

Netflix is bringing Russian Doll back for season two on April 20. Ahead of the new season, let’s revisit what odd time travel quirks are happening to lead Natasha Lyonne, cast as Nadia.

The new season will happen about four years after Nadia and Alan (Charlie Barnett) escaped mortality’s time loop. This new season will dive deep into Nadia’s psyche and past as they explore existential experiences in a script that deftly combines elements of science fiction and noir humor.

There is a fate worse than perpetual death for Nadia, as this season finds Nadia and Alan mining their pasts through a discovered time portal located in one of Manhattan’s subway lines.

Netflix describes their journey as an “ever-expanding, era-spanning, intergenerational adventure,” but like all existential crises and adventures, these two may have bitten off more than they can swallow. So they must figure a way out.

As Nadia, Lyonne’s acting range is profound, and producer Amy Poehler’s instincts for the story are spot on in this quirky, shocking, and wild adventure through The Big Apple like never experienced.

The two with Leslye Headland created this series that tinges with the classic film Groundhog Day and combines mental health issues, time travel, and New York City as a central character. Netflix is delivering seven 30-minute episodes.

In season one, we met Nadia, a woman trapped by strange happenstance as she experiences some personal crisis, conflicts with herself, her past, and living her life day to day in a loop.

Nadia celebrated her 36th birthday, but she kept dying and then returned to the same birthday party. She can last as long as a whole day past the experiential reset point, but she will die again.

The series percolates with the lifeblood of nocturnal New York, the music and vibes. Nadia is navigating her inner labyrinth of thoughts and feelings as she struggles to maintain genuine human connections. In season one, we learn unaddressed issues with her mother may cause the effects she is experiencing.
