After a 3-year-long wait, Russian Doll’s 2nd season came out on Netflix on April 20, and if you were one of those people that starved for new Russian Doll content, you probably finished the new season in just a few hours. And since the season had only 7 episodes, your hunger is not satisfied so you need more shows like Russian Doll. Don’t worry, we got your back until a Russian Doll Season 3 comes out.
Russian Doll is a comedy-drama that is mysterious which means you always have to wait until the end to get answers. This uncertainty about the direction of events may be one of the reasons why we love the show so much. We believe other shows that involve comedy and drama with a pint of mystery will be perfect for viewers who search for shows like Russian Doll.
1. Dead to Me
The 1st series on the list is Dead to Me, a comedy-drama with crime and mystery involved. It is about a widow named Jen whose husband was killed in a hit-and-run and Judy, a woman Jen meets at a grief support group. While Jen is there for the loss of her husband, Judy says she is there because he lost her fiancé. The 2 quickly become friends as Jen deals with grief through anger and resentment and Judy has a more positive and unhinged outlook on life. Jen starts to seek answers for the death of her husband and realizes that Judy is not like what she seems.
2. Living with Yourself
Another show to watch while waiting for Russian Doll Season 3 would be Living with Yourself, starring Paul Rudd. As another comedy-drama, the show has a very interesting storyline in which a copywriter named Miles, who is unhappy about his life, goes on a spa treatment without knowing what the treatment includes. He finds himself buried in a forest and when he manages to dig himself out, he goes home where he finds his clone.
We don’t know where and how to start with Fleabag, one of the greatest shows ever made in the history of television. The only bad side of Fleabag is that it is too damn short, with only 12 episodes.
Fleabag is an inspiring, loving, and saddening tv series about a young woman who tries to deal with a recent loss. The woman, known as Fleabag, is angry, confused, free-spirited, and sexually very active. The most interesting aspect of this series is that Fleabag constantly breaks the 4th wall to talk to the audience.
