The New Season Of "Gentleman Jack" Focuses On The Newlywed Couple
The upcoming season of the hit show is sure to be full of excitement for fans of the newlywed couple, Anne Lister and Ann Walker.
Their relationship defied societal norms when they married last season. The two women have been through a lot together and their love has only grown stronger because of it.
When the show returns for its second season, we can expect to see their relationship put to the test. The couple moves in together, and writer and creator Sally Wainwright said she will focus on how they handle their life together so openly. And she will also focus on the challenges that come with it.
Speaking to Digital Spy, she said, "they move into Shibden together in series 2 and it's about how they negotiate their married life, conspicuously in public, and how they deal with their detractors and the effect that has on their relationship as well."
During this season, they will also have to face their toughest challenge yet: running a business together. They are determined to make it work, but they know that they will have to deal with plenty of resistance from those who don't want to see them succeed.
Anne Lister's entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life. With her Halifax hometown on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous.
Anyway, rest assured that the couple will face these challenges head-on and emerge even stronger than before.
