The Netflix series Russian Doll dropped on Netflix in February 2019. The series revolves around the life of a super smart and tough New York video game developer named Nadia. The series starts with Nadia drinking, smoking, and fornicating as she moves towards her 36th birthday. On the same night, she dies while she chases her missing cat.
But fate had something else planned. Throughout the series, she dies and wakes up again at the same time and the venue, i.e., her 36th birthday party. The series is a real-time midlife crisis, and the critics and the viewers loved the concept. Since the drop of Russian Doll Season 1, the audience hasn’t stopped asking for season 2.
Is Russian Doll Season 2 Happening?
Since the first season was a success, it was natural for Netflix to renew the series for season 2 as well. So they did! Russian Doll Season is scheduled to be released in June 2019.
The co-creator of the series Leslye Headland revealed in an interview that they had pitched Netflix for three seasons of the series Russian Doll and they agreed. They said, “Great, the more of that, the better.”
So we can expect Russian Doll will have season 2 and 3.
Lyonne also said that the reason Russian Doll Season 1 was successful because the character of Nadia is very clear. This adds to the entirely different concept for the series of different things happening to her every time she dies. The audience knows that the experience is lived and not some sci-fi.
She added that she has some great ideas for the show as it goes ahead. And the show might not be just restricted to three seasons. She said that the show would continue to grow as long as the series is interesting, and the audience feels that it’s worth watching.
Who Are All The Expected Returnees For Russian Doll Season 2?
There is no official confirmation yet, but we can expect the lead characters to be back for Russian Doll Season 2. The lead includes:
- Natasha Lyonne as Nadia
- Charlie Barnett as Alan
- Greta Lee as Maxine
- Elizabeth Ashley as Ruth
- Yul Vazquez as John Reyes
Is There A Deeper Truth Hidden For Russian Doll Season 2? What Is The Expected Plot?
What we have seen until now shows that the character Nadia is going through some series of existential crises. She feels that the world is defying her. She is dying and comes back to the same venue as her 36th birthday. Along with her, Alan also is living and reliving the same night on which he committed suicide.
Nadia figures out that they are in a vicious circle, which is like a video game. And they have to solve the mystery to be able to come out of it. In the final episode of Russian Doll Season 1, we saw that they both got stuck in two parallel universes. In both worlds, either of them doesn’t know the other.
So for Russian Doll Season 2, we can expect the series to continue from where it left. We may expect that they both have to find out a way to come out of the video game. The question is if they go out of the circle, will they live or will they die?
