You can finally start to watch Gentleman Jack season 2 online, as it's finally hit the air— and why wouldn't you? As they say, absence makes the heart fonder. Yes, while season 1 ended in July of 2019 (which practically feels as old as the time period in Gentleman Jack itself) — the new episodes are finally here, almost three years later.

Gentleman Jack season 2 picks up right where you'd expect it to, using more of the real life diaries of Anne Lister to show Halifax on the brink of revolution and society ever changing in the year 1834. Lister (Suranne Jones) and Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle) are finally setting up their domestic palace at Shibden Hall, and trying to ignore how people view their life as wife and wife. 

The period piece drama sees the pair looking to unite their estates and will, but the drama isn't just about their coupling. It's also about Anne's past: her former lover Mariana Lawton (Lydia Leonard) arrives to stir the drama, and seems to want to knock Ann out of the picture.

Meanwhile, Ann's worried about her family's judgement, and while some members of polite society see Anne as too money-hungry, she doesn't care. She wants to start a hotel, and is trying to borrow all the money she can.
