russian doll ending

Three seasons, what a concept. But it’s the concept that creator and star Natasha Lyonne is envisioning for her high-concept sci-fi series Russian Doll, which debuted to rave reviews this past February and has already been renewed for a second season. But Lyonne says that the Groundhog Day-esque series likely won’t go much further than that, based on her plans for the Russian Doll ending.

Russian Doll season 2

Russian Doll, the twisty Netflix dramedy starring Natasha Lyonne, has officially been renewed for a second season, with eight more episodes on the way. The first season works so perfectly that the idea of bringing it back for more potentially seems like flirting with disaster, and there are plenty of questions about where exactly the series will go after its satisfying season one finale.

Russian Doll Trailer

Groundhog Day is the cornerstone of movies that repeat a certain event over and over again. Movies like Source Code, Edge of Tomorrow, Happy Death Day and more have run with the formula and put fun twists on it. But we’ve rarely seen that formula applied to an entire series (ABC’s canceled Day Break comes to mind), and now it’s Netflix’s turn to take a crack at reliving the say day over and over again.

Russian Doll is a new Netflix comedy series co-created by Orange is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne, Sleeping with Other People director Leslye Headland, and Parks and Recreation producer and star Amy Poehler. It finds Natasha Lyonne as a young woman named Nadia who suddenly finds herself reliving the same night whenever she dies, which happens more often than you’d think because she seems to be kind of a klutz.

Handsome Trailer

If you’re a Curb Your Enthusiasm fan who is anxiously awaiting the ninth season that was announced last year, we have something that might hold you over, albeit without Larry David.

Jeff Garlin is one of the regulars on Curb Your Enthusiasm, not to mention making a great 1980s father in The Goldbergs, and he occasionally likes to dabble in writing and directing. He’s back behind the camera with his third movie as writer and director, Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie, which puts Garlin in the role of a Los Angeles homicide detective in a movie that feels like it was made in the 1990s, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Antibirth trailer

One of the stranger films I caught at Sundance this year was Antibirth, a trippy thriller that marks Danny Perez‘s debut feature. Natasha Lyonne stars as Lou, a strung-out, hard-partying veteran who discovers she’s pregnant…despite the fact that she hasn’t had sex in months. And it just gets weirder from there, as Lou sets out to learn what’s really growing inside her. Joining Lou on this bizarre journey are her best friend Sadie (Chloë Sevigny), their drug dealer Gabriel (Mark Webber), and Lorna the conspiracy theorist (Meg Tilly).

Antibirth definitely won’t appeal to everyone, but if you’ve got a taste for whacked-out body horror and a twisted sense of humor, this one might be for you. Watch the Antibirth trailer below.
