Following years of bated anticipation, Netflix has finally released an incredibly trippy trailer for Russian Doll season two, a month after announcing the premiere date.
Created by Amy Poehler, Natasha Lyonne and Leslye Headland, the Emmy-winning show has been arguably considered to be the greatest Netflix Original. A subtle balance between existentialism and dark humour, the show is indeed brilliant, and fans cannot wait to see what will happen in the second season.
The second season will see Charlie Barnett as Alan flaunting a distinguished moustache, alongside actors like Greta Lee, Elizabeth Ashley, Sharlto Copley and Yul Vazquez. The teaser trailer previously hinted at weird and bizarre time-travel being undertaken by Lyonne and Barnett.
The new mind-boggling trailer shows the never-ending time loop that takes place once again as the protagonist, Nadia and Alan are seen in the New York City subway entering mysterious portals. Nadia is seen across timelines and dimensions as she moves between several places, including 80s New York.
From being confined in her Manhattan bathroom to moving around the whole city across various eras, the second season will most likely be extremely confusing. As Nadia says, they have “unfinished business” which might involve a\n elusive cache of gold.
Life seems to get even more trippy and indecipherable for the duo. As Nadia says, “I finally found something worse than death. I broke time.”
As they travel through various timelines, wake up in graveyards, walk up dubious staircases and live in constant delirium, Nadia’s deadpan humour is palpable as she says, “Inexplicable things happening is my entire modus operandi”.
This “wild ride” of a season will premiere on Netflix on April 20th, 2022.
