‘Palm Springs’ Director and Writer Tease Time Loop Details, Whether Anyone Else is Stuck in the Loop

“Nothing matters” might not be the lesson you want to take away from Palm Springs, a sunny rom-com that stars Andy Samberg as a man trapped in a time loop that has turned him into a vacationing nihilist and Cristin Miliot as the fellow wedding guest who gets trapped in it with him. But that’s kind of the attitude that director Max Barbakow and writer Andy Siara take toward the science of the time loop that makes up the central premise of their romantic-comedy. How does the time loop work? Did Samberg and Miliot’s Nyles and Sarah actually get out? Are there other people stuck in the time loop as well? That depends on what you think, Barbakow and Siara said in a new interview following the release of their wildly successful comedy.
Spoilers ahead for Palm Springs.
