Earlier today, the official Twitter account of Anya Taylor-Joy tweeted the words “The Queen’s Gambit Season 2”. Fans of the series were overjoyed as they’ve been waiting for The Queen’s Gambit season two since the first season ended in 2020. However, the fans’ excitement was cut short following the actress’ announcement immediately after stating that her Twitter account was hacked.

Some fans might be disappointed that the season two isn’t happening, but some fans are quite contented with the decision. FudgeWilde replied on the tweet and said “How would they do season 2? It was a masterpiece season 1” However some fans are actually thinking that it was part of a big plot twist as one fan said “that’s fake news, the hacker is just part of the season 2 storyline”. Other are just in denial and even said “Nah, she just announced it too early and Netflix got ahold of her. Lolol.”
