Russian Doll season 3: Is it renewed, canceled over at Netflix?

Russian Doll

Following the launch of season 2 today, can we imagine a Russian Doll season 3 renewal over at Netflix? Or, is this going to be the end?

We do think there’s going to be a big demand for more of the Natasha Lyonne series, and for a number of reasons. This series was a big-time critical success for the streaming service back in season 1, and it’s as weird and trippy as any one you’re ever going to find. It is a fantastic performance piece for the lead, and it also gets to traverse genres just as often as it traverses time.

Unfortunately, this is where things start to get a little bit more hazy: For the time being, there is no confirmation that a season 3 is going to happen. It’s probably that we will see more episodes, but that decision probably won’t be publicly known for at least a few weeks, if not longer. Typically, the streaming service relies on retention across the full season as a key measurement. They also want to know people are binge-watching fast and that there is a true demand for more.

Of course, we should note that Netflix has much larger problems today than renewing or canceling a single show. They need to revisit a lot of the problems that have existed with their service for a while. For starters, the price tag is too expensive for a lot of people these days, to the point where they are considering an ad-supported option at a lower prince down the line. Them spending a lot of their time contemplating ways to stop password-sharing is also not exactly buying favor with the public.

Their biggest issue? They need more consistently great programming (like Russian Doll), and we also think that the binge-watching model hurts them to some degree. It makes it so that people don’t talk about any of their shows longer than a couple of days.
