    It is good to know that Natasha Lyonne had originally pitched Russian Doll as a three season series so they have some plan in mind. I was a bit worried that it felt they had told a very complete story in Seasom 1 and had nowhere to go from there.

      Truthfully I'm not sure how they'll explain the final moments of season one. Seemed more like an artistic finale than a plot-based one, and those dont typically lend themselves easily to continuation.

        I felt the same way at the end of The OA season 1. Hopefully they can blow my mind in the same way with Russian Doll.

        Sounds like season 2 might be its own story rather than a continuation of season 1, sort of like the way American Horror Story used the same actors to tell different stories each season.

        They're planning to make Nadia a part of all three seasons, though Lyonne said that her ideas for the show include making it a "kind of out-there anthology."

          Russian Doll is predicated on the idea of a loosey-goosey multiverse so they've set the stage for a sort but not wuite anthology series.
