The Return of Russian Doll

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, the New York City subway. 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.

The Emmy-winning show returns with Lyonne serving as showrunner and  executive producer, and is also executive produced by Alex Buono, Amy Poehler (Paper Kite Productions), Leslye Headland, Lilly Burns (Jax Media), Tony Hernandez (Jax Media), Dave Becky (3 Arts), Kate Arend (Paper Kite Productions), Regina Corrado, and Allison Silverman. RUSSIAN DOLL is also produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
