Netflix has announced a season two for their popular half-hour comedy Russian Doll at Recode’s annual Code Conference.
Russian Doll, which was created and executive produced by Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland, devoted its first season to the experience of a young woman named Nadia, played by Lyonne. She repeatedly dies during a New York party that seems never to end thanks to an edgy, mordant update of Groundhog Day‘s premise.
Season two will consist of eight episodes. The renewal news came during an interview featuring Natasha Lyonne and Netflix Content VP Cindy Holland which was conducted by Kara Swisher.
Russian Doll also stars Greta Lee, Yul Vazquez, Elizabeth Ashley and Charlie Barnett.
