What will Russian Doll season two be about? 

In the season one conclusion, it looks like Nadia and Alan have finally fixed the bug in the matrix of their lives by doing what they should have done originally - helped one another - and therefore reset order to the universe (while celebrating in a strange festival along the streets on NYC). With this time loop seemingly closed, where will season two go from here?

The plot has been kept very much under wraps, but Natasha Lyonne told ET Online: "What can I tell you? It’s… you want to jump off a cliff creatively… I think I’m going to give you a series of murky answers but suffice to say, I’m very moved that people are interested in to the deep end and that was the revelation of Russian Doll connecting, so I guess my intention in our plans are to continue to dig deep in a way that is aesthetically enjoyable and feels funny on your insides." 


Are you looking forward to season two?

She added: "I will say that it does not become a show about dating in New York or anything like that—and no shade on those shows, but that’s not this show."

Who will be in the cast of Russian Doll season two? 

While we presume that we will see the return of Natasha as Nadia, along with Charlie Barnett as Alan Zaveri (and of course, Greta Lee as Nadia's upbeat pal Maxine), it has also been confirmed that Schitt's Creek star Annie Murphy will be appearing in season two alongside House Of Cards’ actress Carolyn Michelle Smith.
