We all have great hope from the creators of Russian Doll. On June 11, 2019, they announced the renewal of Season 2. Many may not be aware that one of the creators, Leslye Headland, has already crafted the series for three seasons of storytelling. Leslye Headland stated that if Russian Doll Season 2 gets positive reviews and a huge success, they will move on with the next season. We believe that Russian Doll Season 2 will have the same number of episodes (i.e. eight episodes) as its predecessor. However, we’re disappointed that the streaming giant has remained silent in the making of the second season.
Russian Doll Season 2: Cast and Plot!
Little is known about who will return alongside Natasha Lyonne’s Nadia for Russian Baby Season 2. But comedy fans will see at least one familiar face enter the world. Annie Murphy, who recently won an Emmy Award for her role in Schitt’s Creek, joins the cast.
Season 1 follows Nadia on the night of the deadly Groundhog Day. He learns that he’s not the only one stuck in a loop. So is Alan, played by Charlie Barnett. Later we learn that Alan actually died by suicide and that when one dies, the other dies immediately.
The first season was to widespread acclaim and earned Natasha Lyonne a Primetime Emmy nomination for her outstanding lead actress.
With no news about Season 2, it seems safe to assume that Lyonne’s Nadia will play a role, if not necessarily the main character. It looks like Nadia may not be the main character in Season 2 and beyond, but she can still play a key role in guiding whoever Russian Doll decides to focus on next. This could also give the series a chance to explore the rules of this universe, which is only hinted at in Season 1.
Russian Doll Season 2: Release date and Trailer!
The season 1 trailer dropped about a month before the episodes. Once we know when Season 2 will be, we should have a better idea of when to expect a new trailer.
Here is the trailer from Season 1:
Much like the series, it’s hard to get the timing of Russian Doll Season 2 right. Production began in March 2020, before shutting down due to the coronavirus pandemic. It took more than a year for filming to resume in March 2021. We assume that Season 2 will drop in February 2022.
