It has been over two years since the first season of Netflix’s comedy-drama series Russian Doll premiered. Even though the series has been quite popular among fans, the wait for Russian Doll Season 2 has been long. But be ready as your wait is about to end. The second installment of Nadia’s tale is virtually knocking at the door.
What To Expect From Russian Doll Season 2?
The synopsis of the second season indicates that Nadia Natasha Lyonne and Alan fled mortality’s time cycled together four years ago. Now, season 2 of Russian Doll will continue to explore existential themes via a sci-fi and frequently comedic lens. In Russian Doll Season 2, we will learn of a fate that is even worse than eternal death. Nadia and Alan spend the season diving deeper into their pasts thanks to an unforeseen time portal in one of Manhattan’s most infamous sites.
But going by the synopsis, Russian Doll Season 2 will likely involve some amount of time travel. In the next season, viewers will get a look at what the future has in store for Nadia. Also, it will offer fans more details about Alan’s personal life and background. Meanwhile, it might also focus more on Murphy. We will learn why he was dressed in 70s appropriate clothes with oversized glass in the first look pictures.
We also assume that the second season will feature more than one timeline. As the synopsis hints at SciFi, we may see alternate versions of the main characters. Showrunner Leslye Headland mentioned, “We all have more to tell as artists. When initially pitched, Nadia was a presence throughout all three of them. But it was not in a very conventional way, if that makes sense.”
