What is the plot of Gentleman Jack season 2?

The BBC synopsis for season two 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.”

In the 19th Century, women weren’t able to marry each other so the community in Halifax will have plenty to say about their arrangement.

The trailer also teases the return of Lister’s first love Marianna Lawton (Lydia Leonard) who left to tie the knot with a man.

While Lister is happily living a new life with Walker, will she be seduced by Marianna who still has feelings for her?

Gentleman Jack season 2 premieres on Sunday, April 10, at 9pm on BBC One.
