Gentleman Jack season 3: Writer speaks out on hopes for another series

Speaking to The Metro prior to the season two premiere, Wainwright said: “I’d love to be able to tell the story of the remainder of her [Anne Lister’s] life up to her death when she was 49.

“The diary is fantastic, the diary is just full of anecdotes and…she manages to find such extraordinary things in the ordinariness of everyday life because her days are so packed and so full.”

Gentleman Jack is loosely based on the contents of Lister’s diaries, detailing her business dealings and romantic endeavours.

Lister is currently around 43-years-old in season two so if Wainwright does get her wish of completing her story until the end, this may mean potentially six more series of Gentleman Jack.
