Gentleman Jack Season 2 Plot
A lot of history is involved in this story. At the end of season 1, audiences saw Anne Lister and Ann Walker planning to live together in Shibden Hall. Now, in the 19th century, same-sex marriage was illegal. So, they took the matter into their own hands and declared their relationship status as “wife and wife”. Therefore, they are going to start their married life and we do not know how the families are going to react.
Besides this, fans also want to know about the fate of Thomas Sowden, the character played by Tom Lewis. They are eager to find out what will happen to Thomas after killing his son, Snowden. Will he get the punishment he deserves?
In season 2, we are also going to see incidents and characters based on Lister’s real-life diaries. Interestingly, the diaries were written in code language so that nobody could understand them. Plus, these diaries had as many as 7,700 pages and over five million words to cover.
The creator of the show revealed that there will be more intense drama as Ann’s and Anne’s relationship is progressing. She even highlighted, “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.” “There’s no end of stories, the diaries, this huge wealth of knowledge.”
Gentleman Jack Season 2 Cast
Apart from the familiar star-studded cast, there are not many new characters. We already mentioned that Suranner Jones will be Anne Lister whereas Peaky Blinders fame Sophie Rundle perfectly portrays Ann Walker. Next are, Gemma Jones playing Aunt Anne Lister, Rosie Cavaliero as Elizabeth Cordingley, Timothy West for Capt.
Jeremy Lister, Amelia Bullmore for the character Eliza Priestley, Joe Gemma Whelan playing Marian Lister, Armstrong as Samuel Washington, and Tom Lewis being Thomas Sowden. Hopefully, there won’t be any sudden surprises.
Gentleman Jack Season 2 Trailer
A romantic trailer has been released and we see the lovely couple, Lister and Walker getting comfortable in their private lives at their new home. They seemed happy but Lister somewhat has problems with Halifax’s patriarchal society.
We even hear Lister saying, “We are the only people in the world, who want us to be together.”
It seemed like society feared the couple and one elderly woman even stated, “With Anne Lister’s wit and Ms. Walker’s money, she could run the whole of Halifax.”
At last, we see the trailer end by saying, “the next chapter awaits.”
So, it will be quite a dramatic ride this season. There are less than a few days left until April and fans are hoping for more updates on the release date. So, keep calm as things are going to speed up real quick.
