Season 3 of Russian Doll has yet to be confirmed by Netflix, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility of a sequel. We’ve included everything series star and co-creator Natasha Lyonne has said about what might be in store for a third season, as well as our own guesses and ideas based on what happened in seasons 1 and 2.
“I know there has to be room left open for anything beyond my limited imagination in this time to know if that is still where the series begins, middles, and finishes,” Lyonne said in a 2019 interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s possible that there are only two seasons left. It’s possible that there are four seasons in the year. Those three seem to be the most likely candidates right now.”
Continue reading to learn everything we know so far about a possible Russian Doll season 3 there are huge season 2 spoilers ahead.
Russian Doll season 3 Release date
It’s impossible to determine when Russian Doll season 3 will be released on Netflix because it hasn’t been commissioned yet. Season 1 began in February 2019, with season 2 following in April 2022, meaning we may not see Nadia and Alan for another three years.
Russian Doll season 3 Cast
Natasha Lyonne will reprise her role as the wise-cracking leading woman Nadia Vulvokov if Russian Doll makes a comeback.
Charlie Bennett will almost certainly return as Alan in season three, unless he dies again.
Maxine, Nadia’s sweet birthday baby bestie, played by Greta Lee, would not be complete without Nadia.
Then there’s Horse (Brendan Sexton III), the mysterious homeless man who usually comes just as things start to get strange and (time)loopy. Could he be the guy responsible for Nadia’s existential nightmare?
As a result, next season, this seemingly tiny figure may play a bigger role.
Aside from that, the cast’s fate is in the hands of time, with travels into Nadia’s past possibly resurrecting the youthful Aunt Ruth (Schitt’s Creek’s Annie Murphy), the older and now deceased Aunt Ruth (Elizabeth Ashley), and her absentee tearaway mother (Chloe Sevigny in the ’80s timeline).
Third season of Russian Doll Plot
The beauty and frustration of Russian Doll is that the previous two seasons may be watched alone, but when combined, they form a larger puzzle.
We may presume that, like season two, season three will have Nadia time-traveling once more, as it did in season two.
But, like Nadia’s, the future is bleak. However, we’re looking forward to seeing where it takes us.
Season one revolved around a time loop established firmly in the present day, with Nadia and Alan’s deaths recurring until they figured out how to break it.
Season two spent a lot more time in the past, with Nadia learning (and becoming) her mother and grandmother at different times.

With this in mind, it’s possible that season three may be set in the future, which was hinted to in season two but didn’t become the main story.
However, let’s face it: at this point, your guess is as good as ours.
What will the third season of Russian Doll be about?
Season 1 of Russian Doll was a cerebral, video game-like time loop rhapsody, while Season 2 included time travel and a healthy dose of multiverse action. Season 3’s mind-bending time trope is unknown, but we have a feeling that whatever happens to Nadia and Alan will push them to dig deeper into their pasts and relationships.
Is there a trailer for Season 3 of Russian Doll?
Unfortunately, there isn’t likely to be a third season trailer for quite some time.
However, Netflix normally releases a trailer around a month before the premiere of a new season, so keep a lookout!

Seasons one and two of Russian Doll are now available on Netflix to stream.
