In one other interview, Natasha Lyonne did say that there’s been loads of brainstorming saying:
“I’m fairly enthusiastic about a few of our early conversations and to see the place they actually lead by the point we begin placing pen to paper in a devoted means, as soon as we get again into the room. However the early notes are fairly heavy,”

“What can I let you know? It’s… you need to bounce off a cliff creatively… I feel I’m going to offer you a sequence of murky solutions however suffice to say, I’m very moved that individuals are into the deep finish and that was the revelation of Russian Doll connecting, so I suppose my intention in our plans are to proceed to dig deep in a means that’s aesthetically fulfilling and feels humorous in your insides.,”
With the filming now postponed with no sign of ending, it’s onerous to see Russian Doll being a part of the 2020 lineup as an alternative, we’re now predicting season 2 of Russian Doll to be on Netflix in 2021 on the earliest.
Will the story from the primary season of Russian Doll proceed?
Warning: Spoilers observe for season 1 of Russian Doll.
This may positively be the biggest query on everybody’s thoughts. If we consider how the primary season ended, it was positively left as much as the viewers to interpret. The ultimate shot of the finale did appear to point that Nadia and Alan in some way managed to transcend realities and have been reunited. Or was it merely simply one of many thousands and thousands of timelines which will have occurred?
The situations for the story we foresee are the next:
The Story Continues with Nadia and Alan
Each Allen and Nadia grew shut all through the primary season, with every influencing the opposite to turn into a greater individual. Alan and Nadia’s function to flee the time loop seemed to be by saving one another. However there’s potential in using the timelines relying in your interpretation of Season 1’s ending.
If the story continues with Alan and Nadia’s timelines crossed over and they’re reunited It’s onerous to see the place the story may go. It is because each characters have been allowed to expertise an intensive quantity of character progress, so for them to regress looks like a poor alternative.
Arguably we realized extra in regards to the previous of Nadia than what we did Alan, subsequently, there’s room to discover that factor of the story. Together with Nadia rising to the concept of being with John and accepting his household might be how the story progresses Nadia’s character additional. How this impacts the timeline, we’ll let the writers determine.
Are there two timelines in Russian Doll?
Alternatively, it might be enjoyable to see the attitude of each timelines from the POV of Alan and Nadia who saved the opposite (very like what occurred within the season finale). This is able to discover two timelines within the narrative with an added emphasis on how a lot one choice can affect the lives of you and people round you. To not point out the Alan and Nadia that by no means skilled the time loop would wish to expertise character progress as soon as once more.
A enjoyable thought could be to make the Alan and Nadia who didn’t expertise the time-loop achieve this, successfully following 2 new characters within the time loop. In the meantime the Nadia and Alan we adopted within the first season now have to assist break the cycle. Whereas this all could sound very complicated, the desk under could assist you to perceive what we imply.
|Timeline||Skilled Time-Loop||Didn’t Expertise Time-Loop|
Two timelines. Two Nadia’s and two Alan’s. One serving to the opposite escaping the time-loop and changing into higher for it.
Completely different Characters Develop into Trapped within the Time Loop
All through the primary season, we have been handled to a really intriguing solid of colourful characters. If Nadia and Alan have really escaped the time loop then maybe one among their mates comparable to Maxine turns into trapped. Alternatively, Nadia and Alan’s former flames Mike and Beatrice (who had an affair collectively) may turn into the main focus of the sequence. With Mike’s womanizing methods and Beatrice’s dishonest, it might positively make for fascinating storytelling.
By utilizing Mike and Beatrice you could possibly nonetheless use the characters of Nadia and Alan to propel the story additional.
A New Forged
Arguably the least possible of the three situations we may see is a wholly new solid with a brand new story.
The least possible of the three situations, there’s a risk that a wholly totally different solid might be used for Season 2. By utilizing the identical/related idea there’s room to discover the time loop narrative in an alternate gentle. This is able to make the sequence an anthology however we don’t consider the writers behind the present foresee the sequence heading down that street.
The truth that Natasha Lyonne herself stated the present was initially pitched as a three-season series, positively would counsel there’s extra story to the touch upon with Nadia and Alan however its enjoyable to invest regardless.
