According to executive producers, a second season of The Queen’s Gambit is not happening.
Fresh off the series winning an impressive 11 awards at the Emmys, executive producers of the show broke the somber news that the show would not be returning for another season.
“I feel like we told the story we wanted to tell,” said producer Scott Frank. “I’m terrified that if we try to tell more, we would ruin what we’ve already told. “
The Queen’s Gambit hit Netflix in 2020 and became one of the platform’s most popular series ever with over 62 million viewers.
However, both Frank and fellow producer William Holberg ensured that they will be teaming up with show star Anya Taylor-Joy for another project in the future.
