Time Continues to F**k with Nadia in Trailer for Russian Doll Season 2
Published 4 months ago
It’s been three years since Nadia found herself stuck in a time loop, and now Netflix is ready for a second season of Russian Doll. While the first teaser was pretty ambiguous about where the story could go, we now have a new trailer that gives us a good idea of the plot overall.
The official synopsis for Season 2 reads:
Set four years after Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) and Alan (Charlie Barnett) escaped mortality’s time loop together, season two of Russian Doll will continue to explore existential thematics through an often humorous and sci-fi lens. Discovering a fate even worse than endless death, this season finds Nadia and Alan delving deeper into their pasts through an unexpected time portal located in one of Manhattan’s most notorious locations. At first they experience this as an ever-expanding, era-spanning, intergenerational adventure but they soon discover this extraordinary event might be more than they bargained for and, together, must search for a way out.
While the first season took a lot of its influence from Groundhog Day, Season 2 looks to be going full Back to the Future and actually have Nadia and Alan time travel. We don’t know exactly what the rules will be this time around, but we can see that several other characters from the first season will be making a comeback, so not everything is going to be the same as the first season.
The show has actually won 3 Primetime Emmys and has also been nominated for Oustanding Comedy Series as well as Outstanding Lead Actress for Natasha Lyonne. While I thought the first season was well-contained enough, I’m hoping that they manage to tell an organic story when it comes to this second season.
Catch Russian Doll Season 2 when it premieres later this month on April 20.
