When I was sick with the flu, I went to social media and begged you guys for the shows that would entertain me the most while I was all laid up. You lit up the post with all sorts of stuff, but one that kept popping up was “Russian Doll” starring Natasha Lyonne.
I didn’t read anything about it prior to loading up Netflix and pressing play. I honestly didn’t have the energy to do much (damn you flu!) But the moment it started I was intrigued. If you haven’t seen the first season, I’ll give you a brief synopsis without spoiling its roller coaster ride.
Lyonne’s character, “Nadia” keeps dying in random ways and each time she does, she keeps reliving the same day over and over and…you get it. That’s the big thing you need to know. The rest is that ride I was talking about – it’s SO GOOD.
They probably could have ended it with one season and fans would’ve been sad but satisfied. The fact we get a season 2 excites me to no end!
What we know so far is that 8 more episodes are coming thanks to the announcement earlier Tuesday at the CODE Conference in Arizona. When? It can’t get here soon enough, but no date has been given for its release.
