Netflix’s ‘Russian Doll’ Renewed for Witty and Sarcastic Season 2
Get ready to get stuck in another loop of epic proportions. Netflix’s Russian Doll will return with a second season. The new season will hopefully be just as funny and dark as the first season. It will feature another eight episodes, and has yet to announce a release date.
The show follows Nadia Vulvokov, who’s a coder and is unfortunately forced to keep reliving her 36th birthday on repeat. The loop only ends when she dies in many different and creative ways. The dark comedy is a blast to watch and fans are craving more.
The main character of Nadia Vulvokov is loved by fans
Fans can’t wait to catch up with Nadia, played by Natasha Lyonne. Lyonne actually co-created and starred in every single episode. It was created with Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland and they will also be involved in the second season.
The renewal for a second season was finally revealed by Lyonne and Netflix’s VP Cindy Holland. They appeared at Recode’s Code Conference in Arizona. “Same show, just weirder,” Lyonne explained. “The character is a coder, so it would be appropriate to have this be the time and place to say, yes. So very much yes, I would love to do [a second season].”
‘Russian Doll’ was nominated for 13 Emmys
Netflix’s Russian Doll was just nominated for 13 Emmy Awards. Lyonne herself is up for lead actress in a comedy and writing for a comedy. Leslye Headland and Amy Poehler are also up for writing for a comedy.
The show is also up for outstanding comedy series and outstanding writing for a comedy series, as well as others. The all-female writing and directing team worked extremely hard on a unique show that has captured the hearts and minds of fans.
Lyonne told People how it all makes her feel. “It’s creatively affirming more than anything to know how hard we worked and how scary it was to dive into the deep end on the show.”
“Frankly, this is the first show that I’ve really created and seen through from inception to color correction,” explained Lyonne. “The idea that this was well received instead of alienating for audiences, really makes me encouraged to continue along those lines to want to ask big questions about what it all means and what we’re all doing here.”
What can we expect from ‘Russian Doll’ Season 2?
As we don’t yet currently have a release date, fans can still predict when to expect the next season. The first season premiered in February 2019, so the second season could arrive about the same time in 2020.
Lyonne will still play Nadia, but she may not be the lead star this time around, to the disappointment of fans. Lyonne told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview that the show isn’t a “one-woman” show. At least she will grace our screens as the lovable Nadia in some way or another in the next season. We also don’t know who will be joining her in the upcoming installment, such as Greta Lee, Elizabeth Ashley, or Charlie Barnett.
