Natasha Lyonne has been a Netflix fixture since starring in Orange is The New Black from 2013 until 2019, followed by another hit series, Russian Doll. It was recently announced that Lyonne would be teaming with Knives Out and Glass Onion director Rian Johnson on a new series, Poker Face.

Lyonne plays a character named Charlie Cale, who has an uncanny knack for knowing when someone is lying and uses that ability to help solve crimes. In a joint statement announcing the series, Johnson and Lyonne said:

"“Never underestimate the power of a good dinner conversation between friends. What started as a discussion over steak frites about detective shows and what made them such a reliable pleasure—the exploration of little worlds within each new setting, the guest stars playing killers and victims, and most importantly, a scrappy protagonist you were always ready to kick back with and see win—ultimately resulted in the creation of Charlie, the driving force behind Poker Face.”"

The show’s IMDb page indicates that it will initially consist of ten episodes and, in addition to Lyonne, will feature Megan Suri, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Benjamin Bratt, Jameela Jamil, and Chloe Sevigny. According to Deadline, the cast will also include Ellen Barkin, Nick Nolte, Ron Perlman, Rhea Perlman, Luis Guzmán, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tim Meadows. It’s a staggering ensemble of comedic and dramatic acting talent, giving Poker Face the potential to exist at either end of that spectrum or anywhere in between.

Is Poker Face on Netflix?

Despite both Johnson and Lyonne’s previous success on Netflix with other projects, Poker Face will not be available on the streaming platform. Netflix subscribers hungry for Rian Johnson’s work can watch his 2019 hit Glass Onion or last year’s sequel, Knives Out: A Glass Onion Story on Netflix. Anyone wishing to get their Netflix Natasha Lyonne fix can still catch up on all seven seasons of Orange is the New Black or both seasons of Russian Doll.

Poker Face premieres on January 26 on Peacock, with the first four episodes dropping simultaneously and a new chapter following each subsequent Thursday. The official trailer shows Charlie driving her 1969 Plymouth Barracuda and chatting with fellow co-star Lil Rel Howery, who plays Sheriff Taffy Boyle.
