What do we know about Gentleman Jack series two?

Back in November 2020, Suranne and co-star Sophie Rundle – who plays Anne Lister’s love interest, Ann Walker – were pictured on-set.

In one photograph, Anne could be seen handing a bunch of flowers to Ann.

Series creator, Sally Wainwright, told Digital Spy: “They [Anne and Ann] move into Shibden together in series two and it’s about how they negotiate their married life, conspicuously in public, and how they deal with their detractors and the effect that has on their relationship as well.”

“Obviously we’ve got season two, which is fantastic, and I hope it will continue on after that,” she said.

“There’s no end of stories, the diaries, this huge wealth of knowledge.”
