In the ever-expanding streaming universe, there are TV shows that make you laugh, those that scare you half to death, and those that inspire you with the protagonist's incredible achievements and make you grateful for the relative stability of your life. The latest entry in that last genre is The Queen's Gambit , which dropped on Netflix in October and stars Anya Taylor-Joy as an orphaned chess prodigy struggling with drug addiction. The miniseries' seven episodes follow nearly a decade and a half of the life of Taylor-Joy's Beth Harmon. Her story starts at an orphanage, where she is fed tranquilizers and soon builds an addiction to the drugs, but also unlocks a hidden talent while learning to play chess from the facility's custodian.

Here's what you need to know about the series' source material, and what it means for the future of the show.
