The BBC has shared a first look at season two of the award-winning drama Gentleman Jack before it officially premieres this April.

Marking an official release date, the full length trailer has already got fans of the series excited to get reacquainted with Anne Lister (Suranne Jones), Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle), and Mariana Lawton (Lydia Leonard).

Watch the trailer here:

Other cast members returning for season two include Gemma Jones as Aunt Anne Lister, Timothy West as Jeremy Lister, Joe Armstrong as Samuel Washington, Amelia Bullmore as Eliza Priestley, Rosie Cavaliero as Elizabeth Cordingley, Gemma Whelan as Marian Lister, and Tom Lewis as Thomas Sowden.

Also joining the cast this season is Joanna Scanlan, who will play Anne Lister’s outrageous former lover Isabella ‘Tib’ Norcliffe.

Like season one, the new series will use the real life diaries of Anne Lister - which was partially written in code - as its source. Every part of Lister’s story is based in both historical fact and the five million words she wrote in her journals.

So what can fans expect from Anne in season two?

We pick up in 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.

Gentleman Jack series one is available to stream in full on BBC iPlayer.

Gentleman Jack series two will premiere on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 9pm on Sunday 10th April, with new episodes premiering weekly.
