The Queen’s Gambit had a huge run last October, and now it’s picked up eleven Emmy awards. Fans’ main question: will there be a second season?
Admit it, you were also eyeing a chess set when you finished “The Queen’s Gambit”. The 2021 Emmy Awards were held on Sunday, where the chess series starring Anya Taylor-Joy won in the Best Limited Series or Anthology category.
This is the 11th time that Netflix has won a creative Emmy, adding to the previous Creative Emmys. With this kind of success, the question automatically arises as to whether or not “The Queen’s Gambit” will get a second season. According to the show’s executive producers, the answer is no.
Scott Frank and William Holberg said everything they planned had already been said, and they are happy with the result. As Holberg puts it, he fears that if they go ahead with the project, they will spoil what they have created. That is, there will be no season 2, no film sequel, no prequel or sequel. Everyone should be content with what they have.
The American girl the Soviets bowed down to – “The Queen’s Gambit”. He also added that the creative team would like to work together again sometime in the future. In other words, if not as a brilliant chess player, we will see Anya Taylor-Joy in some other role with Frank and Holberg.
But for those of you who already miss the actress, don’t worry. “Last Night in Soho” will be released in the U.K. cinemas on October 29, and next year there will be at least two more films starring Taylor-Joy. One is “The Northman”, which reunites her with director Robert Eggers, and the other is the still-untitled David O. Russell film. The actress will appear alongside stars such as Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, and Robert De Niro.
Speaking of the Emmy Awards, a special mention must go to Rév Marcell, who was nominated for his cinematography work in “Euphoria”. Although the nomination did not become an award, Hungary is extremely proud of its genius cinematographer.
