'Russian Doll' Will Likely End After Season 3, Says Natasha Lyonne
For all the praise "Russian Doll" has received since it premiered in February, the Netflix show probably won't have an especially long run. Co-creator and star Natasha Lyonne still sees it as a three-season series.
The Hollywood Reporter asked the actress about having pitched "Russian Doll" that way, and she hasn't changed her mind so far. While Lyonne hasn't definitively stated that the comedy-drama will end after Season 3, she shared she still expects it to. Lyonne did, however, leave the door open, saying that "it will be interesting to see what evolves."
"I know there has to be space left open for something beyond my limited imagination in this moment to know if that is still where the series begins, middles and ends," Lyonne told THR. "Maybe it's only two seasons. Maybe it's four seasons. Right now, it feels quite clearly that it is those three."
The series centers on Nadia (Lyonne), the guest of honor at a party in New York City who finds herself stuck in a loop of restarting her evening and then dying. All the while, she tries to figure out what's going on. Season 1 consisted of eight episodes and Season 2 is set to bring eight more, as Variety reported in June.
The first season of "Russian Doll" has a 96% Tomatometer rating and an 87% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes as of this writing. If Lyonne and the rest of the people behind the show can maintain that quality, you can bet that it'll be hard for fans to say goodbye after Season 3 ... or Season 2 or Season 4.
