Two years after the show debuted on Netflix, Russian Doll season 2 has begun filming in New York City. In addition, the show has cast Schitt’s Creek actress Annie Murphy for its next run of episodes.
Murphy’s role in the show is being kept under wraps, according to Variety – as are story details on season 2. But the return of one of Netflix’s best originals to date is definitely great news for fans of good television.
Russian Doll is co-created by star Natasha Lyonne, Parks and Rec’s Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland – who is working on Star Wars TV show The Acolyte.
Not much has been said about Russian Doll season 2 publicly, but back in July 2019, Lyonne said the following about the direction of the show to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m very moved that people are interested into 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.”
Season 2 was originally meant to film back in 2020, but like so many TV shows and movies, the pandemic bumped those plans back. We’re expecting Russian Doll season 2’s release date to be some time early next year on Netflix – but we’ll have to wait and see on that front.
