After a 3-year-long wait, Russian Doll is finally back for season 2! The first season of the hit show aired in February 2019, on Netflix. The show was one of Netflix’s most successful and critically acclaimed shows, which has earned an enormous fan base since its first release. With its interesting and unique storyline, the show made us want to see more of that world.
So many fans around the world were dying to know more about season 2 and Netflix answered our prayers. Netflix released 5 photos and a from the new season of Russian Doll and gave some information on the new season. Let’s look together at what we know so far about Russian Doll Season 2!
Russian Doll Season 2: When Will It Air?
When the show was renewed for a second season in June 2019, no official information was given about the Russian Doll season 2 release date. The show’s new season will also be streamed on Netflix, just like the first one and Netflix still has not announced anything about the release day of season 2. However, some sources report that the new season will come out this spring. So, we will be able to stream it anytime between March and June.
Netflix is not known for surprise drops so it will probably make an announcement in a few weeks to let us know about the exact release date. Let’s hope the rumors are true and that we will have the second season soon. Until then, we strongly suggest to re-watch season 1.

Unfortunately, the trailer for the new season did not drop yet but we have a few photos released by Netflix that give some clues about the story and the characters of Season 2. For instance, in this photo, we can see that the character Maxine (played by Greta Lee), Nadia’s stylish and blunt friend is coming back for Season 2.

What is Russian Doll about?
As both a comedy and a drama, Russian Doll’s protagonist is a game developer named Nadia, who in a party hosted by her friend, repeatedly dies and comes back to relive the same moment. Stuck in this time loop, Nadia starts to search for answers and finds Alan Zaveri experiencing the same situation. The couple tries to find answers to their problem and Alan thinks they are being punished for being bad people. However, Nadia and Alan actually figure out how their lives are connected and come up with a theory that the two are reliving their death again and again because they failed to prevent each other’s first deaths. So, the story continues…
