“HBO will not be moving forward with a third season of Gentleman Jack,” the network told Deadline.

“When we began this journey more than five years ago, we knew the series’ creator Sally Wainwright had a uniquely compelling vision.

“It’s been tremendously gratifying to see how Anne Lister’s journey has resonated with viewers.”

However, much to the dismay of its hardcore fanbase, the show will come to an end after just two seasons.

The statement continued: “We are incredibly grateful to Sally, to the impeccable Suranne Jones and Sophie Rundle, and to the entire cast and crew for bringing Anne and Ann’s story to life.

“We’d also like to thank our partners at BBC and Lookout Point for their collaboration on two remarkable seasons.”

The news will be a huge blow to fans of the show, many of who called for the show to be renewed following the airing of the second season finale in the UK.

Showrunner Sally Wainwright previously discussed how season two of Gentleman Jack was a lot more historically accurate than the first.

“I did make stuff up in the first series,” Sally said earlier this year.

“Half the time, in the second series, I found there wasn’t enough room to make things up because the diary is so Anne-centric.


“I’ve seen episode one about five million times, but it’s just struck me seeing it now, you’re never off the screen are you?

“You just drive the whole thing in a way that’s an accurate reflection of the diaries, that it’s inevitably Anne-centric because it’s her diary.”

Gentleman Jack is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
