Gentleman Jack Season 2 Synopsis
The official synopsis for Gentleman Jack season 2 is:
“Yorkshire, 1834. All eyes are on Anne Lister and Ann Walker as they set up home together at Shibden Hall as wife and wife, determined to combine their estates and become a power couple. Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.
“Series two will again use the real life diaries of Anne Lister – part of which were written in code – as its source, with every part of Lister’s story based in historical fact and the five million words she wrote in her journals.”
In addition to this, in an interview Sally Wainwright, the creator of this show, also spoke about the series exploring more of Anne’s relationship. She also said that there is a lot more content for more seasons. Hence, fans can expect season 3 as well.
