'Gentleman Jack' Season 2 Review: Anne Lister Is Back and Better Than Ever

From the very first beat of Gentleman Jack Season 2, it's plain to see that Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) is intent on making an entrance. In the midst of her decisive strides across a dirt road, cane in hand and top hat perched jauntily on her head, she turns to address the camera directly (in what will come to be the first of several fourth-wall breaks that the show cheekily likes to employ) and greets us as one would the return of an old friend: "Ah, there you are. Good." And with that, it's as if we were never parted from her in the first place. Even while the series (which initially premiered back in 2019) had a long road to the production of its second season, with a delay resulting from the ongoing pandemic, there's something infinitely comforting about being able to literally pick up right where we left off with the ongoing adventures of Anne Lister from creator Sally Wainwright — and this is still Anne Lister, all right, in all her outwardly assured and inwardly vulnerable glory.
