Season 2 of Gentleman Jack Gets a New Look, and a Release Date Is Teased!

Gentleman jack season 2: Gentleman Jack the Suranne Jones-led period drama based on real-life lesbian landowner Anne Lister, has received a new look from HBO, as well as a teaser for its upcoming premiere.

The broadcaster released a snapshot of Jones taking a selfie on set with her co-star Sophie Rundle, who plays Anne's love interest, Ann Walker, on Valentine's Day (February 14).

It also read, “Love thy selfie,” before announcing that the new episodes will premiere on HBO Max “this spring.”

The first chapter of the show, created by Sally Wainwright of Happy Valley, premiered in the United States in April 2019 and the United Kingdom on BBC One a month later. So it's no surprise that, following multiple production delays caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, it's eyeing a comparable position in 2022.

Killing Eve's Gemma Whelan (as Anne's sister Marian) and Lydia Leonard (as Anne's ex-lover Marianna Lawton) are among the newcomers in season two. Joanna Scanlan (The Thick of It) is slated to join the cast as Isabella ‘Tib' Norcliffe, one of Lister's earlier companions.

Gemma Jones (Aunt Anne Lister), Timothy West (Jeremy Lister), Katherine Kelly (Elizabeth Sutherland), Tom Lewis (Thomas Sowden), Amy James-Kelly (Suzannah Washington), and Peter Davison (William Priestley) are all likely to return, however, their involvement has yet to be confirmed.

Season one was set in the 1830s in Halifax, Yorkshire, and followed Anne's efforts to restore her ancestral property, Shibden Hall, to its former splendour, as well as her passionate, stormy romantic connection with Ann. Before Ann consented to live in Shibden, the couple took the sacrament together and surreptitiously exchanged rings in church.

“It's about how they handle their married life, obviously in public, and how they cope with their adversaries and the effect that has on their relationship,” Wainwright previously told Digital Spy.

“There's an endless supply of stories, diaries, and wisdom.”
