Just a few hours ago, Netflix dropped a tweet, according to which Russian Doll is returning for a Season 2. This comedy-drama, mystery web series debuted in February 2019 and has received critical acclaim. However, until now, it hasn't been clear whether the show will completed with just one season or not. Fortunately, the global broadcaster opted to give us one more chance to enjoy another season of this Groundhog Day style metaphysical comedy.
Most likely, Russian Doll was conceived as an eight-episode limited series, yet given such a brilliant reception from critics and viewers, Netflix was forced to expand the web series with more episodes. Indeed, if we take a look at the reception which Russian Doll Season 1 has received from critics and viewers, we should admit that almost everyone was impressed while watching this comedy-drama series.
On Rotten Tomatoes, Russian Doll Season 1 holds a score of 8.49/10 and a 96% approval rating from critics, while viewers have rated the mystery web series at 4.3/5 and have given a 87% rating. On Metacritic, Russian Doll has received mainly favorable reviews from both critics and viewers that indicates the universal acclaim, with a score of 89/100 and 7.8/10, respectively. On IMDb, Russian Doll holds a score of 8.0 out of 10 based on about 40,000 votes.
Netflix has yet to announce any specific synopsis for Russian Doll Season 2, yet the upcoming round of the web series promises to be exciting. As you remember, in S1E8, Nadia and Alan found themselves trapped in two separate timelines, where they run into alternate versions of each other. So, next season should be even more fun, as well as mysterious.
Russian Doll Season 2 Release Date
Netflix has yet to announce a specific release date for Russian Doll Season 2. Since the decision on renewal has been announced only in June, we tend to believe that at least half a year is required to produce another season of the web series. Therefore, in the best case scenario, we should expect Russian Doll Season 2 premiere not earlier than in February 2020, given the current schedule of the series. In the worst, it could take about a year to film another installment of Russian Doll. In such a case, Russian Doll Season 2 might premiere in June 2020.
Nonetheless, in any case, we would have to wait for the official announcement from Netflix. As soon as the global streamer sets a particular release date for a sophomore season of the comedy-drama web series, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
