Meet the Gentleman Jack 2022 cast

Gentleman Jack series 2 has arrived on BBC One – here’s a full run down of who’s on the cast.

Based on the diaries of Anne Lister, after the first series aired in 2019, a brand new series of the historical drama is airing on BBC One on Sunday nights.

A teaser for the second outing reads: “Yorkshire, 1834. All eyes are on Anne Lister and Ann Walker as they set up home together at Shibden Hall as wife and wife, determined to combine their estates and become a power couple.

“Anne Lister’s entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.”
