Netflix's chilling new supernatural series Chambers ends with a clear set-up for season 2, but can fans expect to see more of Sasha (Sivan Alyra Rose) and the LeFevre family? Here's what we know so far about the show's renewal, the potential release date for Chambers season 2, and how the story could continue.
Created by Leah Rachel, Chambers begins with Sasha having a sudden heart attack at 17, on the same night that wealthy and popular teen Becky LeFevre (Lilliya Scarlett Reid) dies after being electrocuted in a bathtub. Sasha is saved by a heart transplant from Becky, and after he recovery is approached by Becky's parents - Nancy (Uma Thurman) and Ben (Tony Goldwyn), who want to know more about the girl who got her daughter's heart. As Sasha becomes more involved with the LeFevres, she is haunted by frightening visions and supernatural events, leading her to wonder if some part of Becky has survived.
Though season 1 resolves the main mystery of Becky's death and the strange things happening to Sasha, it opens up a whole world of possibilities for Chambers season 2. So is it happening?

Chambers Season 2 Renewal
Unfortunately, almost two months after season 1 released, Netflix canceled Chambers. So that means Chambers season 2 simply won't happen on the streaming service, and here's what Netflix had to say on the matter (via Deadline):
“We’re grateful to creator and showrunner Leah Rachel for bringing this story to us and to her fellow executive producers Alfonso Gomez Rejon, Steve Gaghan from Super Emotional, Winnie Kemp and Wolfgang Hammer from Super Deluxe, and Jennifer Yale. We’re also thankful to the tireless crew, and to our incredible cast, especially Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn and talented newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose.”
What Chambers Season 2's Story Would've Been About
Warning: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead for Chambers season 1
Chambers set up season 2 in a number of ways. For starters, Sasha's Uncle Frank had been falsely accused of murder (most likely arranged by The Annex in order to isolate Sasha), so unless his name could be cleared he was heading for a lengthy stay in prison. However, getting what she wanted may not have been difficult for Sasha, as the season finale saw her unleashing the full potential of her new powers to neutralize members of The Annex who had come to praise the spirit inside her.
That spirit was Lilith, who - as an in-universe TV show helpfully explains - was the first wife of Adam, but refused to be subservient to him and instead wandered out into the wilderness. In Jewish mythology Lilith is often depicted as a demonic figure (in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, for example, she's the mother of demons), and she certainly seemed to have exerted an evil influence over Becky. However, The Annex believed that she was a benevolent force and that Sasha, as her host, was the divine feminine.
With Becky's spirit now gone, Sasha would have been left alone to defend her soul against Lilith in Chambers season 2 - and she would have had to decide whether to use her new powers, or find a way to rid herself of them.
