The BBC has released the first full-length trailer for series two of Gentleman Jack to coincide with the announcement of the premiere date.
There are also new images of Suranne Jones, Sophie Rundle and Lydia Leonard as characters Anne Lister, Ann Walker and Mariana Lawton.
Set in 1834, the series will return to Yorkshire where the newly wedded Lister and Walker are making a home together at Shibden Hall.
The two aim to combine their estate in the hope of becoming a power couple, but Lister’s entrepreneurship frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life. And as Halifax is on the brink of revolution, her high profile endangers them both.
Creator Sally Wainwright has once again drawn on the real-life diaries of Anne Lister to ensure every part of the story is based in fact.
Joanna Scanlan will guest star in the series as Lister’s outrageous former lover Isabella ‘Tib’ Norcliffe.
Also returning to Shibden Hall are Gemma Whelan as Marian Lister, Gemma Jones as Aunt Anne Lister, and Timothy West as Jeremy Lister.
Gentleman Jack series two starts on Sunday 10 April at 9.00pm on BBC One.
