The executive producer of Netflix’s Queen’s Gambit had this to say to Deadline about season two. “It’s wonderful to know that people loved the show where they want to spend more time with these characters; we never envisioned it that way,” says The Queen’s Gambit EP William Horberg. “We felt that the series had a satisfying endpoint and we’d allow the audience to fill in the space as to what happens next for Beth Harmon. Nothing has changed, despite fans demanding more on my Twitter feed. Scott and I feel really happy about the completeness of Beth’s story.” To read the rest of the interview, click here.

The producers of The Expanse about the weird and wacky journey of the series. “After Season 1 we made a deal with Amazon for the SVOD rights after (each season’s) airing on Syfy,” Alcon Entertainment CEO Broderick Johnson told Variety. “The issue was, more and more people were finding it more attractive to see it on Amazon. So the economics for Syfy just for their window and the advertising they were collecting in their window started to not make sense. They didn’t have the global rights to justify the cost of the show.” You can read the rest of the interview here.
