The fans have to wait a lot more for watching Russian Doll Season 2 on-screen. Its been more than a year since the show debuted, and now the fans are getting desperate to have the second installment. The fans loved the dark-comedy and humor of the first season. As a result, the show became one of the most successful shows of the previous year.
Russian Doll is an American dark-comedy series. Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headland, and Amy Poehler created this show. This series premiered on February 1, 2019, on Netflix and became a breakthrough hit. The debut season of the show successfully managed to get four Primetime Emmy Award nominations. After looking at the enormous response, Netflix renewed the show for the second season in June 2019.
Production Status Of The Second Season!
According to the reports, the creators didn’t even write the scripts for the second season by the end of the previous year. The filming of the second season was scheduled to begin in May 2019. However, before the creators started it, Coronavirus outbreak shut down the global entertainment industry. The pandemic affected all the shows and halted the production for an uncertain amount of time. The cast and crew of Russian Doll Season 2 would try to start filming as soon as things get to normal.
Russian Doll Season 2: Plot Details!
In the debut season, the viewers saw Nadia dying on her birthday night. Later, she awakens and relives the night again and again like she is all alive. She met Alan, a man who is suffering in the same circumstance. He is also reliving his death day after dying by suicide. However, later they understand that both of them are lost in a video game reality where their death night was a jumping-off point.
In a recent interview, Pohler discussed the future of the show. She said, “Instead of saying, ‘Can you make it more convenient so that more people like it?’ the people form Netflix said, ‘Actually, can you push it more into an original space, a riskier space?” This statement hints that the creator will dig deeper in search of truth in Russian Doll Season 2. The second season can completely turn the story of this show upside down.
In another interview, Lyonne suggested that the second season would connect to the debut, through a video game. She said, “There’s always a million yous walking around. It just depends on which one you’re going to put on today. It proposes the question of how many variants of the characters are there collectively? That’s absolutely something that was considered.”
