When Russian Doll Season 1 premiered in February 2019, fans were instantly enamored by its twisted humor and new take on an old Groundhog Day theme. The eight-episode first season follows a coder named Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) who finds herself stuck in a time loop. She keeps mysteriously dying then waking up in the middle of her 36th birthday party to live the day all over again. The catch is, as she's working to figure out WTF is going on, she meets a man named Alan (Charlie Barnett) who is also stuck in the loop.
For the rest of the season, Nadia and Alan try to figure out why they're living and dying the same day together, and even though they never really get an answer, they do find peace. During the final episode, they both wake up in separate time loops where the other has never died. They take it upon themselves to ensure the "new" versions of the other stays alive and bond all over again in a new way. And even though the storyline wrapped up nicely, a Season 2 is officially in the works — and with a beloved star joining the cast.
