Annie Murphy is moving out of Schitt’s Creek.
The Schitt’s Creek Emmy winner has joined the season two cast of Netflix’s Russian Doll. Details on the role Murphy will play are being kept under wraps.
The Groundhog’s Day-like comedy starring Natasha Lyonne recently kicked off production on season two. A return date has not yet been determined.
The dark comedy counts Amy Poehler as an exec producer was co-created by Lyonne, who led an all-female writing and directing team for the first season. The Orange Is the New Black alum starred in every episode as Nadia Vulvokov, a coder who is forced to relive her 36th birthday on a nightmarish loop when she keeps dying and coming back to life.
The series debuted on Feb. 1, 2019, ahead of Groundhog Day, Russian Doll earned rave reviews, though several critics noted that, given how the first season ends, Netflix should let the show live on as a limited series. The Hollywood Reporter‘s Daniel Fienberg called it a “near-total triumph, suggesting to Netflix, “There’s absolutely no need for a second season of Russian Doll. It’s good and it’s right.”
Murphy, meanwhile, next stars in AMC’s comedy Kevin Can F*** Himself. She earned an Emmy as well as Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her role in Schitt’s Creek. She’s repped by Gersh, Mosaic and GGA.
