Netflix is caught in the “Russian Doll” loop. The streaming giant has renewedthe critically-acclaimed series for Season 2, which will consist of eight episodes. The announcement was made at the CODE Conference in Arizona on Tuesday. “Russian Doll” was co-created by Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland.
Lyonne, who co-created the critical darling and led an all-female writing and directing team for the first season, starred in every episode as Nadia Vulvokov, a coder who is forced to re-live her 36th birthday on a nightmarish loop when she keeps dying and coming back to life.
News of a second season of Russian Doll also comes as Lyonne is preparing to end her seven-season run on Jenji Kohan’s acclaimed prison dramedy Orange Is The New Black, which will release its final season on July 26.
