Great news for ‘Gentleman Jack’ fans!

We finally have an update on the new season of Gentleman Jack.

Set in Halifax, West Yorkshire in 1832, the BBC’s hit period drama series premiered in May 2019, becoming the most successful launch of the year for a new BBC drama.

A second season was swiftly commissioned last summer and eight hour-long episodes had been due to begin filming in the north of England this June.

However, the current global coronavirus pandemic caused production to be postponed.

Game of Thrones actress Gemma Whelan, who plays Anne’s younger sister Marian, explained earlier this year: “…we’ve all just got to be flexible and open and wait until the right time when everyone’s safe and it’s okay to get on with things.”

Well, it looks like that time has come as we can now confirm that cameras have started rolling on Season 2!

Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster) and Sophie Rundle (Peaky Blinders), who play Anne Lister and her new wife Ann Walker, have both been spotted in costume filming on location this week.

Gentleman Jack creator Sally Wainwright previously revealed what’s next for the couple following their marriage at the end of the first season.

She hinted: “They 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.”

Season 2 is expected to air in 2021 on BBC One in the UK and HBO in the US.

Gentleman Jack is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
