When Nadia Vulvokov (Natasha Lyonne) steps onto the 77th Street subway platform, she appears to have traveled back to the 1980s, a fate she considers “worse than death.”
In season two, instead of dying over and over again until she could get to the root of her 36th death anniversary (you should have stopped reading now if you were worried about season one spoilers), Nadia decides that “the universe” is making her go back in time, again and again, until she can figure out how and why she can travel between decades. She is joined again by Alan Zaveri (Charlie Barnett), her season one pal who was introduced to her when she realized they both died on the same day around the same time ( later it is explained that the two were bonded in life and death because of a particular bodega situation that caused them to cross paths exactly when they both needed one another. other). Her best friend Maxine (Greta Lee) is also accompanying her on one of her trips, according to the trailer Netflix just released today.

The series hits Netflix on April 20, the exact date you might need a time travel binge.
