It is one of the reasons why expecting a follow-up would not be justice to the beautiful series and may adversely impact its reputation.

Breaking solid records on Netflix, The Queen’s Gambit has been one of the most appealing dramas offered by the streaming network with considerable followers. However, a follow-up to the drama would be a disgrace to the influence of the show.

The story of the original novel has already been covered in the series as a consequence of which any continuation beyond the book’s story will only result in staking the show’s prominence.

A follow-up of a series does not necessarily yield a positive outcome. One of the major examples of this includes HBO’s Big Little Lies. The show covered the entire story of its source in Season 1 itself.

The success of the show, considering the number of awards it secured, led the makers of the show to go for a follow-up. However, the second season did not meet the expectations of the viewers thereby causing an adverse impact on the reputation of the series.

The Queen’s Gambit, if picked up for a follow-up is likely to result in the deterioration of the show.

Season 1 of the show itself portrayed the complete story of Beth as she drowns into addiction and survives and travels from a lonely life to an individual of a significant family hence participating in the most prominent game of chess in her life.

The ultimate moment of Season 1 sums up in an appropriate way. The show encloses with Beth’s reunion with her friends, proving herself clean and eventually claiming the Moscow Invitational.

The fact that Beth no longer continued the game as a competition reveals the state of contentment she attained at the end. The game is now played purely for love. This graceful climax would lose its pertinence if followed up by a continuation.
