Despite the cancellation of HBO’s Gentleman Jack earlier this month, series creator Sally Wainwright is offering hope to fans of the lesbian period drama, which was a co-production between HBO and the BBC until the latter decided to pull out.
Wainwright tells RadioTimes.com that “there is a desire to go on with it amongst quite a few people.” Following HBO’s decision not to renew the partnership for a third season, the trick would be to find “another partner who streams it globally.” “All those other options are being explored,” she promises.
“There would have been no question” about a third season if HBO had agreed to it, she adds. “It’s been a very successful show for them in every way – it’s had fantastic reviews, it’s had a very respectable audience, and it’s had an impact on the gay women’s community.” We have the most incredible fanbase.”
Season 3 of Gentleman Jack has been canceled!
Gentleman Jack fans were shocked earlier this month when HBO decided to cancel the drama after two seasons. The series, a collaboration between HBO and the BBC, came to a halt after HBO pulled the plug.
Sally Wainwright, the show’s creator, hopes the show will return in some capacity in the future.
Wainwright told RadioTimes.com that “there is a desire to continue with it amongst quite a few people.” The primary impediment to a pickup is the need to find an international partner to carry the series globally.

Gentleman Jack Season 3 Expected Plot
While Season 3 has yet to be officially confirmed, both the cast and fans are eager for it to happen. When asked if there would be a third season, Jones told Metro, “We don’t know… It’s in the hands of the BBC and HBO. I’m sure there will be discussions now because I know all the fans want it and Sally [Wainwright] wants to write it.
” Wainwright created the show, and it clearly holds a special place in her heart. “It feels to me like Gentleman Jack is what I was sent to the planet for,” she said in an interview with The Big Issue in 2020.
Will there be season 3 of Gentleman Jack?
Will HBO cancel or renew Gentleman Jack for a 3rd season? The series is a co-production with BBC One in the United Kingdom, which helps to reduce costs. Traditional ratings are low, but since HBO is airing it on Monday nights, the cable channel wasn’t expecting much.
Despite the numbers, I believe it is still possible that it will be renewed, but it is far more likely that it will be canceled. This page will be updated as new information becomes available. Sign up for free Gentleman Jack cancellation or renewal alerts.
