                            'Chambers' season 1 ended with plenty of unanswered questions, setting up a possible 2nd installment

This article contains spoilers for 'Chambers' season 1.

Netflix's latest horror 'Chambers' premiered with a total of 10 episodes for its debut season Friday, April 26, and by the number of unanswered questions the first season ended with, a second season doesn't look all that far away. Even though a second season hasn't been announced yet, the finale of the first season ended with a clear set-up for season 2, so it wouldn't be wrong to assume that the Uma Thurman, Marcus LaVoi, and newcomer Sasha Alyra Rose starring teen horror will be back.

Even though an official announcement is yet to come regarding a second season, fans can rest easy since there have hardly been any shows from the streaming giant that did not get renewed for a second installment; so something tells us we can expect it sometime next year.

The debut season was filmed in 2018 and released in 2019, so once the prospective second season gets greenlit, we can expect it sometime around April or May 2020. Additionally, the streaming network announces second seasons after a week or two from the debut season's premiere date, so fans can watch out for the green light in coming weeks.



 

Of course, there is more of Sasha's (Rose) story to be told as the young teen who undergoes a heart transplant finds herself with a strange haunted heart that makes her embody the characteristics of its past owner.

The story twists and turns as Sasha meets the lavish parents of the dead girl whose heart is now beating in her body, and soon, the blood, gore, and horror begin before the mystery behind the previous owner's death is revealed.

At the end of the first season, we see Sasha with new powers, thanks to her literal haunted heart, but she is also fronted with the question of whether she wants to live with these powers or rid herself of them - something that could be the foundation for the plot in season 2.

Plus, Sasha's uncle Frank has been falsely accused of murder to isolate Sasha, so The Annex could have better access to her. The first season shows The Annex worshiping the demonic spirit that grows inside Sasha, so in their mission to get her to join their cult, they framed Frank in the murder of a loan shark - meaning there's no way he will be able to get out of that mess any time soon.

The first season also introduced us to the spirit that has possessed the heart inside her, and incidentally, this spirit is also called Lilith - a common name used for the queen of hell and all things demonic in Netflix show 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina', and 'Shadowhunters.'

It will be interesting to see whether Sasha joins forces with the spirit inside her heart and embraces the darkness, or she decides to fight it - which in turn would lead her to fight The Annex - a group of demon worshippers on the show.

On the other hand, there is the old woman in the very first episode who just happens to know something is not right with the new heart beating in Sasha's body. Who she is and how she is capable of figuring that out isn't revealed in the first season.

We do know she has had run-ins with The Annex in the past, and as is later revealed in the first season, the lady has been living in Sasha's attic all this while. Bizzare, right? But also unanswered, so that could be something a prospective second season could answer. 

Thurman's character, Nancy - the dead girl's mother - was also taken captive by The Annex at the end of the first season. We know they can't keep her locked up forever, so the whole plot should ideally end in two possibilities: Either Nancy breaks out of The Annex's captivity, or Sasha - for some season - helps her escape.

And speaking of Sasha helping people escape, her uncle Frank (Marcus LaVoi) has also been falsely accused of a murder. Where does his story go from there? Surely Sasha is still capable of controlling her actions, and also is of a clear conscience, which means she wouldn't let Frank be held captive under false charges either.

With all these questions left unanswered, it would be a shame if Netflix decided not to go ahead with a second season of the show. There's more of Sasha's newfound powers to see, and also much to figure out about Lilith's control over her and The Annex. So here's hoping the upcoming season is announced soon so fans can look forward to it.
