Based on Walter Tevis’ 1983 novel of the same name, The Queen’s Gambit was created for Netflix by Scott Frank (Logan) and Allan Scott (The Preacher’s Wife). Beginning in the mid-1950s and proceeding into the 1960s, the seven-episode miniseries follows the life of orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) on her rise to the top of the chess world while struggling with her identity, trauma, drug problems, and alcohol dependency.
The coming-of-age period drama, which had become Netflix’s most-watched scripted miniseries four weeks after its October 23rd premiere, has an approval rating of 99% based on 76 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Aside from Taylor-Joy’s critically acclaimed performance as Beth Harmon, the show has also been praised for its incredibly realized period details and emotionally intelligent writing.
The Queen’s Gambit also received a positive response from the chess community and is claimed to have increased public interest in the game. Elizabeth LoVecchio, a vice president of marketing at Spin Master told NPR that its “chess sales have increased triple digits” since the miniseries debuted, while a rep for eBay said in a statement to The New York Times that the estimated sales of chess boards on the platform had increased by 215 percent.
