The uber-popular chess-themed show “The Queen’s Gambit” met with roaring success ever since it aired on Netflix in October. While everyone’s already quite excited about the possibility of Season 2, truth be told, it hasn’t been greenlit by the streaming giant just as yet. What’s even depressing to note is that the show was marketed as a limited series, which further chunks down the possibility of season 2 being produced.

While the stupendous success of the show is inspiring enough for director-writer Scott Frank to conjure up the next season despite the odds, the challenge of writing new material serves as an impediment to the idea. But, the show’s protagonist Anya Taylor-Joy recently hinted at how things are never quite certain in the showbiz industry, and she's more than willing to reprise her role. “If I've learned anything from being in this industry, it's never say never... I adore the character, and I would certainly come back if I was asked to, but I do think we leave Beth in a good place.”

Hypothetically, even if the makers and Netflix decide to move forward with “The Queen's Gambit” season 2, it’s very unlikely for brand new content to be released in the next three to five years, as Frank would require at least a couple of years to come up with riveting content that does justice to the first season. More so, because Frank hasn’t personally been so happy with work.

“This was the single best experience I've had in a 30-some-odd year career full of really nice experiences... I have no idea how people are going to take it, but it's the first time I'm willing to admit just how happy I am. Normally I'm afraid to ever say that,” said Frank in a recent interview, as per a media outlet.

The show, which is the by-product of a collaboration between Scott Frank and Allan Scott, is based on Walter Tevis' eponymous 1983 novel. Viewers are taken through a rather invigorating journey as the story progresses, as (Beth) manages to combat drug addiction issues and conquer rival, the Russian Vasily Borgov (Marcin Dorociński).

The biggest takeaway is how her inner relationship changes for the better, which helps her build healthier and fulfilling relationships. Fans however predict that if the show ever sees the future, it’s likely to see  Harry Beltik (Harry Melling) and Benny Watts (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) fight it out to be with Beth.

Throughout seven episodes, “The Queen's Gambit” traces Beth’s evolution as she fights inner demons and addictions, only to emerge a world-class chess player. The final episodes leave a bittersweet feeling as it throws light Beth's support system and how she chooses to make peace with her trauma.
