It was to be hoped that the platform would renew the production after the positive reviews and this was made known to us in a meeting held, within the Code Conference, by Natasha Lyonne, protagonist and creator along with Leslye Headland and Amy Poehler, and Cindy Holland, vice president Netflix original content. “Do you want to do a season two, Natasha? Holland asks.” Me, Cindy? The same series, but a stranger? I would love to do it “, the interpreter responds.
But the funniest confirmation came from the hand of Lyonne herself who decided to upload a video on her Instagram account honoring the most iconic sequence, the one in which she ends up in the bathroom of her colleague’s apartment in front of the mirror every time she dies, although this service is less ‘cool’ than the series.
Taking into account the production and development times of Netflix series and that, generally, it takes a year for the platform to launch each season of a series, for now, let’s wait until, if it is renewed, Netflix will premiere the second season of ‘Russian Doll ‘in February 2021.
Natasha Lyonne, of course. While the story of a potential second season of ‘Russian Doll’ could be very different from the first, it is not an anthology series to our knowledge. Lyonne is the protagonist and also the executive producer, so it is very likely that she will repeat. As for the rest of the cast, to know if they would appear we can only wait.
What would the second season of ‘Russian Doll’ be about?
As we know, the ‘Russian doll’ is not a regular dramedy. The “groundhog day” that Nadia lives is nothing more than an excuse for our protagonist to pursue an existential goal, nothing tangible. The story of ‘Russian Doll’ leads us to see how Nadia, awkwardly we have to say, seeks the meaning of life at the same time that she discovers, as she repeats the same story over and over again, that there is something in her that That’s wrong.
Undoubtedly, the second season of ‘Russian Doll’ would continue to explore these paths and, perhaps, find a little happiness in a life that, as he has discovered, is more empty than he thought. All while we discover how everything is connected.
Is it true that with each death a parallel reality has been generated? Would we see how ‘Russian Doll’ explores that possibility in season two? The first season of ‘Russian Doll’ ended with Nadia and Alan “at peace” with themselves, but will this peace last forever?
