Who will be in the cast of Russian Doll Season 2?
Spoiler alert: The ending of the first season, where Nadia and Alan (Charlie Barnett) finally escape their time loop and roam about lower Manhattan like wolves in the night, does work as a proper resolution. However, Headland noted in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that no matter the direction they take the show in, Nadia will always be a part of it in some way. "When initially pitched, Nadia was a presence throughout all three of [the proposed seasons]. But it was not in a very conventional way, if that makes sense. She was always a presence, as we knew Lyonne would always be the beating heart and soul of this show. Whether she was being haunted or she was haunting the narrative, she would be there."
Headland’s answer doesn't give an indication of the fate of the recurring characters played by Greta Lee, Rebecca Henderson, Yul Vasquez, and Elizabeth Ashley, but given their importance to Nadia, there's a chance they’ll stick around -- and maybe become the show's focal point. No word yet as to whether or not we’ll be seeing more of Charlie Barnett as Alan or Chloë Sevigny as Nadia's mother, but it's definitely a possibility.
