It’s your birthday! Fans of Netflix’s “trippy, hilarious, everything-at-once” show “Russian Doll” have been waiting for more than three years for another world-bending event centered around the birthday of the show’s star, Nadia Vulvokov.
But in Season 1, our jaded but happy heroine was stuck in a time loop. In Season 2, she was stuck on a subway train that moves backward and forward in time, and messing with that can make the whole world fall apart. Season 2 of Russian Doll kind of raised the stakes from being stuck in the same day forever.
For all the twists and turns that happen, Russian Doll isn’t about its sci-fi premise. It’s about the twists and turns that happen. There are two main characters, Nadia and Alan. We’ll see how both of them use their circumstances and experiences to grow as people and learn more about who we are and where we fit in the world.
What Will Season of Russian Doll Be About?
Until February 2022, three years after Season 1 came out, there were no clues about what Season 2 might be like. Now that the show is getting ready for the Season 2 premiere, Lyonne is finally giving fans some hints about what they can expect.
She told Entertainment Weekly that the new episodes actually start four years after the end of Season 1. Her character Nadia and Alan were able to get out of the time loop. But that doesn’t mean that it’ll be a straightforward story, either. She called the season a “season.” “It’s a crazy ride.” It is very deep and very off-the-wall.”
If they manage to escape their loops, there could be more than one version of each character walking around. This is what Lyonne said in a postmortem about the first season’s unclear ending: “It raises the question of how many different versions of the characters are there all at the same time.
That’s certainly something that was thought about. This video game raises the question of whether or not they were in a new situation when they finished that round, or if they were just in the middle of another game.” In the next season, it might be important. We can’t wait to find out what crazy adventure Nadia and Alan have in store for us next.

What to Expect From the Release Date of Season 3 of Russian Doll?
Netflix hasn’t said anything about the third season yet, but the writers and creators sure have. Natasha Lyonne, who co-created the show as well as starred in it, said the writing team had a three-season plan from the start.
38 months passed before the second season of Russian Doll came out. This means that if there is a third season, subscribers will have to wait until June 2024 before they can see the time-traveling show again.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter back in 2019, Natasha said, “I can see it very clearly. It will be interesting to see how things change.” Alan [Charlie Barnett] was a very different person in the original pitch and pilot.
The power of the writer’s room means that Alan was a very different person in both of them. He really came alive in the second month of the room. In the past, he had played a lot of different roles, and now, looking back, it’s almost impossible to picture that show without Alan.
Because of that, I know there must be room for something that I can’t think of right now to see if that is still where the series starts, middles, and ends.” A two-season show might be all that is on. Maybe there are four. Right now, it’s very clear to me that those three are it.
We haven’t heard anything to the contrary, so we think that season three has a lot of room to grow. A woman from the future could come and change time to take it from us before that, though.
Which Russian Doll Actors Will Be Back for a Third Season?
Natasha Lyonne and Charlie Barnett should return to reprise their roles as Nadia and Alan, and we’re sure they will.
For the supporting cast, we would expect the following actors to come back and reprise their roles again;
What Did Will Happen in the Russian Doll Season 3 Plot?
The best and the worst thing about Russian Doll is that the past two seasons can stand on their own, but when put together they make up a bigger picture. Nadia will travel back in time again in season three because season two also came to an end in a complete way.
It’s also not very clear what the future holds for both of us. Then, we’re excited to see where it goes. During the first season, Nadia and Alan died over and over again until they could figure out how to break a time loop.
During season two, a lot of time was spent in the past, with Nadia learning about (and becoming) both her mother and grandmother at certain points.
Season three could then be set in the future, which is something that was briefly mentioned in season two but not the main story.
Is There a Trailer for Russian Doll Season 3?
Because there is no chance of a season three trailer for a long time,
However, Netflix usually releases a trailer about a month before the new season comes out, so keep your eyes open. But we have season 2 trailer below:
