*Major spoilers for season 1 of The Queen's Gambit below!*
Here's everything we know about The Queen's Gambit season 2.
Is The Queen's Gambit season 2 happening?
If you're hoping for another season of The Queen's Gambit we have a bit of bad news. Unfortunately, the show is a limited series, which means it's meant to end in the season one finale. Of course, with Netflix, it wouldn't be surprising to hear that they would be game for another season following Beth as she continues to dominate the chess world. So here's hoping that they change their minds.
What will The Queen's Gambit season 2 be about?
The show's first season follows the original book of the same name, but it also ends at the same point. Unfortunately, there's not a second novel for us to find out what happened to Beth and her friends after her big match. However, it wouldn't be the first book to have it's story continued with another season of a show, so it's possible that we'll finally get to see what's next in the chess world.
When will The Queen's Gambit season 2 start filming?
Netflix typically looks at a show's first month ratings to determine whether or not it will be renewed. But once it gets the green light, there's a good chance that the show will start filming as soon as they can.
When will The Queen's Gambit season 2 be released?
Most shows on Netflix return within a year, so there's a safe bet that if the show gets renewed, it will come back around October 2021.
