Plot Synopsis

Created, written and co-directed by Sally Wainwright, GENTLEMAN JACK is a one-hour period drama series that tells the story of a woman who had a passion for life and a mind for business, and bucked society's expectations at every turn. Set in the complex, changing world of 1832 Halifax, West Yorkshire -- the cradle of the evolving Industrial Revolution -- GENTLEMAN JACK focuses on landowner Anne Lister, who is determined to transform the fate of her faded ancestral home, Shibden Hall, by reopening the coal mines and marrying well. The charismatic, single-minded, swashbuckling Lister -- who dresses head-to-toe in black and charms her way into high society -- has no intention of marrying a man. The story examines Lister's relationships with her family, servants, tenants and industrial rivals and, most importantly, would-be wife. Based in historical fact, the real-life Anne Lister's story was recorded in the four million words of her diaries, and the most intimate details of her life, once hidden in a secret code, have been decoded and revealed for the series.

On Monday, June 10, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, HBO premiered "Are You Still Talking?," the Season 1 finale of GENTLEMAN JACK. Following a four-week journey from Paris to Copenhagen, Lister finds acceptance and appreciation in Danish high society, stepping out of her sartorial comfort zone to attend a birthday ball hosted by Queen Marie. When difficult news arrives from Shibden, Lister is faced with the decision to stay in Europe or go back home. In Scotland, a shocking discovery about Captain Sutherland leads Ann Walker to make a bold resolution about her future. An unexpected visitor to the farm threatens to expose Thomas Sowden's macabre secret.

Three weeks earlier -- on Thursday, May 23 -- HBO renewed GENTLEMAN JACK for a second season.
