The Netflix comedy-drama series starring Natasha Lyonne is set to return to the streaming platform this month for the first time since 2019.

In the new trailer, Nadia appears to be stuck in another dimensional loop – but now it appears to be time that’s out of kilter. “You’re a time traveller?” a character asks towards the end, to which Nadia responds: “I prefer the term ‘time prisoner’.”

Take a look at the new clip here.

Speaking to Entertainment WeeklyLyonne (who also co-created the show) said earlier this year about the forthcoming season: “It’s definitely a wild ride. It is deep, and deeply off-the-wall. I genuinely think the joy of the game is to watch it with fresh eyes as much as you can in order to be taken by the story.”

“We all pushed ourselves to the limit of what we thought we could make happen visually and through the storytelling,” she added. “With my whole heart, I hope that people watch it all and see where the game goes and lands. I can’t believe we pulled it off.”

The second season of Russian Doll will premiere on Netflix on April 20.

In a four-star review of the first season of Russian DollNME wrote: “With a killer soundtrack […] and a fiery guest appearance from Chloë Sevigny as Nadia’s mother, Russian Doll could quickly be passed off as a hipster take on the 1993 movie, but it’s much more than a rehash of a well-known premise.
