As season 3 of Russian Doll has not yet been ordered, it is impossible to say when it could potentially arrive on Netflix. Season 1 premiered in February 2019, followed by Season 2 in April 2022, so it might be another three years before we see Nadia and Alan again.

Lyonne spoke briefly about a potential third season, telling Variety“Looks like there’s an idea simmering for Season 3. And it would be really fun if it was one of those shows where, five years later, it’s like, ‘No, wait a second! I think we have another idea for a few episodes.’ I’d love to see that for Russian Doll.” Oh wait, I think we have an idea for our original movie now. It’s been 20 years later. “I don’t think I’ll ever be done with this show. A lot depends on appetite and reception.”

It wouldn’t be Russian Doll without Nadia, played by Natasha Lyonne. Alan, played by Charlie Barnett, is also a vital part of the story, acting as a foil for Nadia as well as an indispensable ally. It’s also likely that Nadia’s friends Maxine (Greta Lee) and Lizzy (Rebecca Henderson) will return, but as to whether we see Nadia’s mother Nora (Chloë Sevigny) or Ruth (Annie Murphy in the past, Elizabeth Ashley in the present), it depends on whether we travel back in time again as both characters are now dead.

Horse (Brendan Sexton III) is also likely to reappear in future seasons – he always seems to make an appearance when things start to get weird for Nadia. We still don’t know much about him other than the fact that he appears to be homeless, but could it be related to Nadia’s time-looping misadventures? Well, hopefully Season 3 can answer that question, if it’s done.
