‘Queen’s Gambit’ has made a new checkmate. The miniseries starring Anya Taylor-Joy has become the most-watched miniseries in Netflix history. Based on the best-seller by Walter Davis, its success seems to have displaced other titles on the platform such as ‘Unorthodox’ or ‘This is how they see us’.
It has been the company itself that has shared this good news. According to the platform, the fiction about Beth Harmon, an orphan who ends up becoming a true chess prodigy, has been seen by more than 62 million viewers.
The streaming service reveals that the miniseries created by Scott Frank and Allan Scott has made it into the top 10 of more than 92 countries. In addition, it has led the ranking of 63 of them, highlighting the United Kingdom, Argentina, Israel and South Africa.
More than solid data, although, once again, it is necessary to remember that Netflix has not specified how those 62 million viewers have been counted, in relation to whether they are counting viewings of the complete miniseries, of only some episodes or, even, only of fragments.
Historically, the platform has counted the public based on the number of subscribers who saw at least two minutes of a title in question.
WILL THERE BE A SECOND SEASON?
With these data, the question arises as to whether Netflix will seek to stop the miniseries and have a second season. At first, the creative team that was behind the production is not very keen to continue with more deliveries.
“The last sequence felt like a beautiful note made to end the series, so I’m not sure we want to continue it,” explained William Horberg, executive producer of the series, in an interview with Town & Country Magazine.
