Suranne Jones will reprise her role as the pioneering landowner and diarist Anne Lister in the second season of Gentleman Jack, which premieres on BBC One on April 10th.
In addition, Peaky Blinders actress Sophie Rundle will reprise her role as Lister’s wife Ann Walker, and Gemma Whelan will reprise her role as Marian Lister in the eight-part series. As Anne Lister’s outrageous former lover Isabella ‘Tib’ Norcliffe, BAFTA winner Joanna Scanlan will make her highly anticipated television debut.
“Yorkshire, 1834,” according to the BBC’s synopsis. Everyone’s attention is focused on Anne Lister and Ann Walker as they prepare to settle into their new home at Shibden Hall as husband and wife, determined to combine their estates and establish themselves as a power couple.
‘Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit, as well as her unconventional love life, frightens the locals, and with Halifax on the verge of revolution, her refusal to maintain a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.’

The year is 1834 in Yorkshire. All eyes are on Anne Lister and Ann Walker as they prepare to settle into their new home at Shibden Hall as husband and wife, determined to combine their estates and establish themselves as a power couple in the process.
