Netflix series Russian Doll filmed two or three different endings, according to one of the show’s stars, Charlie Barnett.
Barnett stars as Alan, alongside Natasha Lyonne’s Nadia. The show was created by Lyonne, with Sleeping with Other People writer Leslye Headland and Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler also on hand.
It’s now been revealed that the series shot multiple endings – and Barnett hasn’t had time to find out which one they ended up using. Speaking to Vulture, the actor said: “We filmed it probably two or three different ways. I have no clue what they ended up using. I’m excited to see.
“There’s one that I really hope is in there. I shouldn’t even say it, but there’s one I’m hoping comes out that’s kind of unsolved and I love that.
“I love that whole element of the show, that you don’t get solid answers, that you walk away being like, ‘Oh. Are they still there? Are they not? Have they solved it? It doesn’t seem like it’. I don’t know where it could go from here, though, if that’s your next question.”
In our four-star review of the series, NME concluded: “With a killer soundtrack that includes the likes of Ariel Pink, Weyes Blood, and Harry Nilsson, 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 Groundhog Day, but it’s much more than a rehash of a well-known premise.
“Its courageous approach to millennial mid-life crises tackles real issues at the centre of many of our collective anxieties.”
So far, there’s no news about a second season but with a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it’s probably only a matter of time.
