Get ready for another time-falling season with Russian dollit’s Nadia (Natacha Lyonne) and Alan (Charlie Barnett)! It’s been three years since the two fell down the rabbit hole, and now they’re back to explore their past more when the new season hits Netflix on April 20. To further increase the excitement for the second season, Russian dollThe home streamer has released an abundance of new footage, ready to be theorized.
A key art photo shows the show’s protagonist, Nadia walking down an escalator on the New York City subway. This season, we know Nadia and Alan will discover a brand new time portal buried (along with what we’re sure are countless other secrets) deep within the tunnels that connect the Big Apple’s neighborhoods. A version of Nadia sits in the center of the image, looking as cool as ever, cradling the giant golden medallion that fans of Season 1 will remember as something of a family heirloom. On the sides of the main plane, the escalators move like an MC Escher painting, with various forms of Nadia casting a mixture of knowing and confused looks.
Several other images give us a glimpse of the return and new characters in the series. The photos show us that returning to Season 2 alongside Lyonne and Barnett we can expect to see Greta Lee, Rebecca Hendersonand Chloe Sevigny. We’ve also got a fresh look at a few new additions for the upcoming season, including Schitt’s Creek alum Annie Murphy and Sharlto Copley.
While several of the photos posted give us pause, there’s one in particular that really gets our gears turning. Fans of the first season will recall that Nadia and Alan both came to life in front of their own bathroom mirrors. Later, when the mirrors begin to disappear, Nadia knows something is wrong with their time travel. In the newly released photo, Nadia is seen looking puzzled into a mirror, but from the wrong side. If you look closely and know the pattern of the tiles inside the subway (Brooklynite here!), you can see what appears to be this iconic tile just behind Nadia’s head. This leads us to believe that there could be mirror jumps inside the subway during season 2.
There! A brief overview of the new photos surrounding the Lyonne, Amy Poehlerand Point Leslye series created. For more on the second season ahead of its April 20 release, check out the full synopsis and the rest of the footage below.
