russian doll season 2 cast sharlto copley

At long last, the worlds of Chappie and Russian Doll will collide as Chappie himself, actor Sharlto Copley, has joined the cast of Russian Doll season 2. We don’t know who Copley is playing just yet, but feel free to go ahead and assume he’s playing Chappie again until we have a definitive answer. Natasha Lyonne once again stars in the series, and while season 2 details aren’t available just yet, season 1 found Lyonne’s character caught in a Groundhog Day-like time loop on her birthday. Copley isn’t the only new addition to the show – it was previously reported that Schitt’s Creek‘s Annie Murphy is also on board as well.

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.

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.
