Season 2 of Netflix’s Russian Doll is coming together and adds Ephraim Sykes (Hamilton) to the cast.

Russian Doll follows Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) who is caught in a time loop as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City. She dies repeatedly, always restarting at the same moment at the party, as she tries to figure out what is happening to her. She meets a man who is experiencing exactly the same thing in a different event.
