We can count the number of good things that happened in 2020 on one hand. And one of those things is The Queen’s Gambit. The Netflix series, which stars Anna Taylor-Joy as competitive chess player Beth Harmon, came out of nowhere and blew us away in every way. The acting, the story, the wardrobe, the set design—it was perfect from start to finish, and, let’s be real, made the year a lot more bearable.

We’re not the only ones who thought The Queen’s Gambit was a hit. It became Netflix’s biggest scripted series ever, achieving 62 million household streams in its first month, Deadline reports. The show also received two Golden Globe nominations: one for Best Limited Series and one for Best Actress in a Limited Series (hey, Anya Taylor-Joy). As with all great shows, it begs the question: Can we look forward to The Queen’s Gambit season 2?

So, is it happening, or what?

We hate to burst your bubble, but as of now, it doesn’t look like there will be more episodes. Remember, it’s classified as a limited series.
