What happens in the final few episodes?

The series already concluded in the USA having aired on HBO at an early date. There's lots of spoilers out there... but don't worry none are in this article.

However, it would be wise to prepare for intense goosebumps and fluttering butterflies as the season finale ends in spectacularly romantic style.

Lesbian romance is given the spotlight it deserves as Gentleman Jack has its final curtain drawn in epic style. But, there are some difficult moments to overcome not only for Anne but the audiences in the episodes prior to the the finale.

Will there be a Gentleman Jack season 2?

Yes!

A season 2 of Gentleman is not only 'on the cards' but it has been 100% confirmed.

Although a start date for the next instalment of the series has not been confirmed, the earliest we could expect Gentleman Jack series 2 would be May 2020.

It's likely that the next series will focus on Anne's extensive travel before she died of fever at the age of 49 in Georgia, as she and Ann Walker travelled through Eastern Europe and Russia.
