The sapphic period drama is returning for its sophomore season -- here's a sneak peek of what's to come.

The long wait for season two of Gentleman Jack is almost over and the BBC has released the first images from it, giving fans a peek at what's to come.

The series, a dramatization of the real-life LGBTQ+ trailblazer and diarist Anne Lister (Suranne Jones), is set in 1834 in Yorkshire and follows her love affair with Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle). It's based on a true story about Lister, an English landowner who kept diaries about her various love affairs with women written in a secret code. In real life, she was married to Walker in the Church of York in 1834, although it was unsurprisingly never recognized legally.

When season two kicks off the couple, now married, have begun settling into their home and making their mark on society.

"Anne Lister's entrepreneurial spirit frightens the locals as much as her unconventional love life and, with Halifax on the brink of revolution, her refusal to keep a low profile becomes provocative and dangerous," reads the logline.

Familiar faces returning for season two include Gemma Whelan as Marian Lister, Lydia Leonard as Mariana Lawton, Gemma Jones as Aunt Anne Lister, and Timothy West as Jeremy Lister.

Joining the cast for season two is Joanna Scanlan who will be playing Lister's former flame Isabella 'Tib' Norcliffe.
