Anya Taylor-Joy has stormed the world out with her limited-run show on Netflix and become a star in Hollywood along with other great performances she’s showed of. Indeed, multiple awards followed these successes after her naturally. So, it’s also very natural that fans have been waiting eagerly and wondering if there would be a next season for The Queen’s Gambit. And it seems that beloved actress has got something to say about for this curiosity of ours.
There is no question asked about The Queen’s Gambit is one of the biggest hits of the fall season with having 62 million households watching this series in its first month. Even sales of chess boards had been up 125 percent after the show has brought chess exciting back all over again. Of course, the talented Anya Taylor-Joy‘s performance as a deeply-scarred but also passionate young woman had the most influence on the show that she became phenomenal with the role. It wouldn’t be wrong to say both storytelling and acting have deserved the awards, we are sure that there is still much more to be earned ahead.
Will there be The Queen’s Gambit season 2?
So, there are questions that have been asking around a follow-up season about its great popularity and less whether we actually need more from this program or not. And even if it wasn’t much, The Queen’s Gambit beautiful star Anya Taylor-Joy has given a few clues about the possibility of a return for the show.
During an interview with ET right after she wins at the Golden Globe Awards, Anya Taylor-Joy answered the question about whether there were any immediate or future plans for The Queen’s Gambit returning in some way on Netflix. She said,
“Maybe… Not to disappoint anybody, but we just never thought about it. It was always a sapling to tree transition. You see her grow, you leave her in a good place. So we were genuinely surprised when people were like, ‘Where’s season 2?”
Clearly, they had never thought of continuing the series since The Queen’s Gambit wasn’t expected to achieve a reception as enormous as it reached. She also points out the beloved series storyline as we actually have seen everything we could have seen as another reason for why they all are unprepared for this expectation for season 2. Although all of these, the real point to consider here might be the “maybe,” since she doesn’t say a certain no, as well. It’s pretty obvious there are no current plans for The Queen’s Gambit season 2 but it seems there could be a possible one, as well. It also depends on Netflix and money as well, since money always talks when it comes to making a decision about a show. We’ll see it in time altogether if Anya Taylor-Joy would come back for another season of The Queen’s Gambit.
Other ongoing projects you can see Anya Taylor-Joy in future
Before we end, I’d also like to remind you that even if we won’t be able to see The Queen’s Gambit season 2 and Anya Taylor-Joy along with it, there are other projects of hers on their way. So, we will see her precious acting in new exciting projects one way or another. Taylor-Joy‘s upcoming projects include Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho which is expected on October 22, 2021. Furthermore, a role of hers in Robert Eggers’ The Northman alongside Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, and Ethan Hawke also is on her agenda with promising a mind-blowing show, especially if we consider all those names coming together. That’s another one to be inpatient for me, actually. But nevertheless, this full agenda of hers still doesn’t mean we won’t see her as Becky Harmon once again.
So stay tuned while we chase up her with the possibilities of The Queen’s Gambit season 2, and much more of course. In the meantime, you might also want to take a look at one of her recent interviews where Anya Taylor-Joy expressed she actually shockingly thinks of herself that she is ugly to be in movies. What?
