‘Russian Doll’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

Despite having a pretty much flawless ending to the first season, it was announced on Tuesday evening that a second season is incoming, and we here in JOE think that the show is one of the very best things that Netflix has ever done, so we're very happy to hear this news.

So while the end of the first season might have seemed like a pretty good conclusion for the story, it seems like Lyonne and her collaborators always had more stories in mind.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga Reportedly Have A 'Huge And Overwhelming Connection'
Jimmy commented that viewers at home felt such a connection between the co-stars that many thought " they must be in love". However, sources assured that Bradley and Irina's breakup doesn't have anything to do with Gaga.

"Same show, just weirder", said Lyonne of what fans can expect from the new season. That is to say, creator and star Natasha Lyonne's semi-autobiographical twist on the Groundhog Day story was going to get at least a second season order from the big wigs - and that's exactly what happened on Tuesday at Recode's Code Conference in Arizona. "Nadia is a coder so it would be appropriate to have this be the time and place", said Lyonne. "Russian Doll" was co-created by Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland. "But it was not in a very conventional way, if that makes sense. But we have discussed all of those things and more". There's no release date set yet for Russian Doll season 2, but we'll keep you posted on the show's development as it moves forward.

For those who've seen the show, you can tell that focus paid off: Russian Doll is unashamedly odd, continually taking the story in unexpected directions, while sticking to snappy 30-minute episodes flawless for the Netflix platform. And given how great Season 1 was, I'm dying to see what they have planned for Seasons 2 and hopefully 3.
