Will There Be A Second Season Of The Queen’s Gambit?

Netflix has not yet renewed The Queen’s Gambit for a series. There are many reasons for this. The first thing is that The Queen’s Gambit was made as well as promoted as a mini-series only. So, we have already seen that most of the mini-series never get renewed for further seasons and all.

Moreover, the series is based on a book written by Walter Tavis. The series has already covered most of the plots from the novel. So, there isn’t much in the plot of the novel that would help the makers to write the plot for the second season. So, the source material has already been exhausted by the makers. If you guys remember, even Game of Thrones exhausted the source material. But, the writers continued the series to keep up with the hype. So, fingers crossed!

Anyway, it looks like there are very few chances for the second season of The Queen’s Gambit.

But, the cast of the Netflix series has shown some interest in the second season of The Queen’s Gambit. They have said that, if The Queen’s Gambit Season 2 is made in the future, they would surely like to be a part of the same!

Apart from all this, if the audience loves a specific series very much and asks for more season of the series, then there have been instances where the TV shows are renewed for the audience. With The Queen’s Gambit receiving completely rave reviews, this instance can also become a possibility soon!Β 

Let’s now discuss what happens if The Queen’s Gambit is renewed for a Second Season!

The Queen’s Gambit Release Date:

The series has not yet been renewed and the source material has been exhausted, so, even if Netflix announces The Queen’s Gambit Season 2, it will take a longer time for the series to release as the script is not ready. Special attention would have to be given to the script. After that, the production will start and then the shooting. So, even if The Queen’s Gambit Season 2 is released, don’t expect it to release before the second half of 2022.Β 

Let us know if a second season of The Queen’s Gambit should be made in the future or should it be left as a mini-series?
