Jodhi May stars in the new season of ‘Gentleman Jack’


The long-awaited second season of Gentleman Jack is almost here, with Jodhi May reprising her role as Lady Vere Cameron.

The first eight-part series concluded with Anne Lister and Ann Walker getting married. So the new series will follow the couple as they live together in Shibden Hall. But, with the story set in 1830s Yorkshire, they’re unlikely to be able to live a peaceful married life together as their relationship continues to cause controversy.

Writer Sally Wainwright has teased that there’s plenty of “big, bold stories” to tell about the pair.

The BBC tease: “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.”

Gentleman Jack begins on Sunday 10th April at 9pm on BBC1 and will also be available on iPlayer.
