After a few months of daunting silence, Netflix confirmed Murphy had been cast for season two of Russian Doll on social media.
The Twitter post read: “What a concept: Schitt’s Creek alum, the all-around flawless Emmy-winning Annie Murphy has joined the cast of Russian Doll for Season 2!”
The popular show which has built a strong fanbase was created and executive produced by Amy Poehler, Leslye Headland, and Natasha Lyonne – who plays the main character Nadia Vulvokov.
The first season of Russian Doll follows Nadia’s who, on her 36th birthday, gets stuck in a time loop where she repeatedly dies at a New York party.
Nadia soon meets Alan Zaveri (Charlie Barnett) who is stuck having to relive the same day over and over. Together, with the help of each other, the pair try to break the cycle and take control of their fate.
