Popular Yorkshire-based show Gentleman Jack has been cancelled by its US broadcaster HBO, but the show which is co-produced between BBC and HBO still has hope of continuing with the BBC ‘in discussions’ with its creators.
The BBC is in talks with Gentleman Jack creator Sally Wainwright about what could happen next with a possible series three for the drama.
RadioTimes.com has reported that a spokesperson told them: “We are tremendously proud of Gentleman Jack, a show which has made a huge cultural impact, and we are in discussions with Sally about what’s next.”
Suranne Jones, who portrays Anne Lister, said it was “sad news” as she has taken a moment to “reflect on our beautiful journey making this show”.
Jones shared a season 2 bloopers video to her Instagram with the caption: “I have never been involved in a show that has made such a huge impact and touched my heart like this one has… It wasn’t always the easiest job I’ve had… but it was always worth it to see the response it got.”
The historical drama tells the story of Anna Lister ‘history’s first lesbian’ who lives in Halifax and has a relationship with Ann Walker. It hit our screens back in 2019 and has captured a huge audience every since.
