A new teaser and many first look photographs have been released by HBO to tease the upcoming return of the drama, which takes place in 1834 and is set in Yorkshire, England. Gentleman Jack’s eight-episode first season was inspired by Anne Lister’s coded diaries, which premiered in 2019. This will be the case for Season 2 as well, which will have eight brand-new episodes.

At Shibden Hall in Season 2, Anne Lister and Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle) are the center of attention as they try to combine their fortunes to become one of Britain’s most powerful couples.
