Netflix is yet to report whether the restricted series — what broke streaming records when it debuted in October — will return briefly season, the entertainer doesn’t think all expectation is lost.
In a new meeting with Deadline, she said, “It’s so surreal and extremely awesome that individuals need a second season because we never considered the big picture, there was no discussion about it,”
She further added, “All things considered, never say ‘never’ in Hollywood.”
“It would be exciting to see how Beth would be as a mother since she’s sober and more insightful of the demons that pull her down,” she added of her character.
Taylor-Joy, whose depiction as the vagrant turned-chess wonder procured her Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Awards nominations, has previously expressed a great interest in getting back to the job.
“I revere the character, and I would unquestionably return on the off chance that I was asked to,” she told Town and Country last year.
However, she thinks her character got a satisfying closure.
“I do think we leave Beth in a decent spot. I figure the rest of her life will surely be an undertaking as well, however in the quest that she goes on in this to discover some harmony, just some having the option to be content with what her identity is,” the star added.
One significant factor is that the series is based on Walter Tevis’ 1983 novel of the same name, and there isn’t any sequel.
“The last scene feels like a lovely note to end the show on, so I’m not sure that we need to go on,” chief maker William Horberg told Town and Country. “Perhaps we can just allow the crowd to envision what comes straightaway.”
