Season 2 has been in the making forever and if you’re eager to know when it hits screens, we ware here to tell you.
From being Nicky Nichols to Nadia: Natasha Lyonne is Netflix’s favourite actress
Natasha Lyonne is a well known actress in the industry, even more so after her celebrated role as Nicky Nichols in the hit comedy drama series Orange is the New Black. Having come out from a dark past, Lyonne began her career when she was as little as six. Following that, there was no looking back.
Following her fine acting skills in Orange is the New Black and But I’m Just A Cheerleader, fans fell in love with her and have regarded her as the ultimate gay icon. Unlike the work Lyonne has done so far, the multi-talented actress found her voice in Netflix original series Russian Doll, not just as the lead, but also as the writer, director and producer.
Quiz: Which Netflix Original Series Are You?
To recap a bit, the American comedy- drama series follows the life of Nadia Vulvokov who endlessly dies and relives the same night in a time loop. While she figures the reason behind the unending night, the game developer also attempts to cheat death but usually fails.
No one around her has a clue about her crazy loop until of course; she meets Alan Zaveri who is also stuck in the never-ending time warp. The series ends with the protagonists helping each other out of the maze where they must withstand the loneliness of doing it by themselves, and whether they have learned enough about one another to do it all.
Russian Dolls season 2 confirmed
Russian Doll was quite a surprise for the audience. As Orange is the New Black was about to come to an end, Natasha Lyonne fans were unsure when they would see their favourite “cheerleader” on screen again. But to their amazement, Netflix had the best possible news as they announced the premiere of Russian Doll.
In case you did not know already, the announcement of season 2 was confirmed in June 2019. The word was first shared on Twitter with the caption, “Did you get the news? ‘Cause you’re about to die, Season 2 of #RussianDoll is coming soon!” You can check this tweet here.
Fans were beyond exhilarated upon hearing this news and didn’t take too long to take to social media. One such tweet read, “’Russian Doll’ is absolutely amazing. The way it captures humanity and its brokenness using an extraordinary premise is genius. I have no words. I think it’s a show everyone should see.”
“I hate Netflix a lot rn but I also want ‘Russian Doll’ season 2 so when you see me streaming it if it comes be quite” wrote another a fan on Twitter.
Cast and plotline revealed
Russian Doll was initially pitched as a three-season show and, given how well season one went down, it’s looking very likely that Netflix will honour the commitment. “We definitely pitched it as this three-season idea and yet it’s so interesting to think about how that shapes and morphs in the time since making it,” Lyonne told The Hollywood Reporter. “Who knows if we’ll be lucky enough to go back down the rabbit hole? That’s tomorrow’s question. But I think we have some ideas” she added.
The show’s location has been revealed with Natasha Lyonne as the lead (Duh!) and perhaps Charlie Barnett, who played Alan, is speculated to return as well. Additionally, just like in the first season, there will be some special guest appearances.
In an interview with NME, showrunner Amy Poehler confirmed that the cast was back in New York. While fans would’ve loved to get some information ahead of the season release, Poehler chooses not to get ahead of herself. “I can’t give any spoilers away unfortunately, but I’m so excited to get started,” she said in the same interview.
When will the new season release?
After the news about the upcoming season was shared online, the audience has since then been wondering when exactly will season 2 release. While there has been no official release date confirmed by the cast, production team or network, there have been speculations that suggest the show is meant to release this fall.
However in March 2020, filming for season two was delayed due to the pandemic and so it is only a matter of time that the situation gets near normal to resume production.
