Critically acclaimed lesbian period drama Gentleman Jack has been commissioned for a second series.
The hit BBC show, which features Doctor Foster star Suranne Jones, tells the story of the ‘first modern lesbian’, Regency-era landowner Anne Lister, and is currently being screened on Sunday nights.
The series has been created by Happy Valley and Last Tango In Halifax writer Sally Wainwright, using Lister’s own diaries as the inspiration for her screenplays.
Commenting on the news, Jones said: “I’m so thrilled that I will be joining Sally on the second part of Anne’s journey.
“We always dreamed there would be more, and now we get to play it all out.”
