'Russian Doll' Returning for Season 2 on Netflix

'Russian Doll' Returning for Season 2 on Netflix

After the critically acclaimed first season, Netflix has ordered a second instalment to Russian Doll. But the first season introduced a fascinating wrinkle to that premise at the end of its third episode, something that elevated it beyond that familiar structure and allowed for more depth and connection to its characters. Lyonne stars as a NY woman who becomes caught in an endless loop of attending her own birthday party only to die and repeat the night over and over again.

The first season of the showRussian Doll stunned fans and received rave reviews, with the weird comedy scoring 100 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, which is usually a solid gold stamp of approval.

"It's such a personal show for me, it's very autobiographical, especially in the sort of thematic sense". Her night resets and she's back in the bathroom of her birthday party, given a second, third, fourth, fifth, etc. chance to fix the loop. "Nadia Vulvokov is a coder, as you know, so I guess it would be somewhat appropriate to maybe have this be the time and place to say yes, very much so, I would love to do that, Cindy".

Let's just hope that algorithm keeps doing its job, so those of us wanting more like Russian Doll don't have to miss out.

Maurizio Sarri deal could trigger Frank Lampard approach from Chelsea
"I'm not sure whether it's Chelsea that want him to leave, or he himself wants to leave". The transfer ban is a blow to the club, but it actually works in Lampard's favour.

Sophie Gilbert for The Atlantic, said: "As the series proceeds, it gets more ambitious and more complicated in a way that's gratifying to watch".

Netflix's time-loop dramedy Russian Doll is returning.

Headland previously said in an interview that she, Lyonne, and Poehler "pitched Netflix three seasons of the most bonkers, heartfelt, passionate, this-is-what-we-truly-feel-like-is-our-story-to-tell idea".
