Netflix’s Russian Doll season 2 has found its newest cast member in Ephraim Sykes.
Update (4/30/21): According to Deadline, Ephraim Sykes is the latest actor to join the cast of the highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s Russian Doll season 2.
Skyes is likely best known for his stage credits, having scored a Tony Award nomination for his work in the musical, Ain’t Too Proud— The Life and Times of the Temptations. Previously, he also appeared as part of NBC’s live production of Hairspray.
As with all other casting announcements for Russian Doll season 2, the creators are keeping role details close to the chest for the time being.
The dark comedy, which was renewed for a second season by the online streaming giant back in June 2019, hails from star Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland.
First premiering on Groundhog Day 2019, the show centers on a young woman named Nadia Vulvokov (Lyonne). Natasha is a New York-based coder who suddenly finds herself stuck in a loop where she dies every night on her 36th birthday, and is forced to relive the night over and over again.

Original Story (3/12/2021): According to Deadline, Carolyn Michelle Smith is the latest actress to join the cast of Russian Doll season 2 at Netflix.
Smith, who is known for her work on such television titles as House of Cards and Colony, will be featured in a recurring role on the series’ highly anticipated second season.
Also on board to appear in Russian Doll season 2 is Emmy Award winner Annie Murphy.
The Schitt’s Creek breakout star signed on to join the cast of the dark comedy back in early March.
Unfortunately, neither Murphy nor Smith’s casting announcements come equipped with further details with regards to who they’ll be playing on the show.
Either way, we’ll be excited to see how they both fit into the fold of things once the series returns with new episodes!
Currently, there’s no word on when we can expect to see Russian Doll season 2 premiere via Netflix.
