Is Gentleman Jack returning for another season? Continue reading to find out more about Gentleman Jack Season 3.
Gentleman Jack is based on Lister’s collected diaries, which contain over four million words and are primarily written in secret code and describe a lifetime of lesbian relationships. As the series draws to a close with the final episode scheduled to conclude the series, many viewers are asking themselves the same question as we are. Is the show getting a second season or not?
If you’re curious about what’s next for this outstanding miniseries. The series has received critical acclaim. The review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported a “Certified Fresh” approval rating of 100% based on 18 critic reviews, with a 95% from the audience score.
The website’s critics consensus states, “Blessed with Suranne Jones’ exquisite performance and some of the crispest dialogue on television, Gentleman Jack remains a total ace.” This might lead to a renewal, which wouldn’t be surprising given how HBO Max has lately renewed a lot of its shows due to popular demand and expanding its amazing catalog for original movies and TV series.
So, we’ve got you covered with all the information you’ll need after watching the final episode of Gentleman Jack, whether the series will be renewed for more seasons to expand further on this story. Here’s all we know about Gentleman Jack Season 3 so far.
Is Gentleman Jack renewed for Season 3?
As of June 13, 2022, Gentleman Jack Season 3 is yet to be officially confirmed by HBO Max. The second season of Gentleman Jack ended with the finale episode, It’s Not Illegal, which was released on May 29, 2022, in the UK, and June 13, 2022, in the US. The episode is directed by Fergus O’Brien and written by Sally Wainwright. Moreover, the series has reached its end in terms of the second season’s story and now is left to be judged and speculated by the fans.
Given the series’ conclusion in June, any news or updates about a prospective season renewal appears way too soon for any major network to make such substantial statements in such a short time. Fans should wait till the network accepts and validates this information. Before renewing the series for future seasons, the network may assess its performance and reception.
Moreover, Creator Sally Wainwright has also stated: “I did make stuff up in the first series. 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. Further adding. “The stuff I made up in series one was the story with the Sowdens and that’s slightly disappeared in series two just to make more space for [accuracy].”
Further adding, “I really respect the journals. I think the truth is always more interesting than something I can make up but it’s just injecting it with life. It wasn’t hard because the journals are so full of life.”
Gentleman Jack Season 3 Potential Release Date
Because the series has not been formally verified by the network, the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there. But if we have to predict the potential release date, it might happen sometime around early to mid-2023, just like the first and second seasons, as the very first episodes aired on April 22, 2019, and April 10, 2022, respectively.
So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and release the season in a similar time frame for the viewers to watch the episodes if the network decides to continue and renew the series further.
Gentleman Jack Season 3 Plot
There is no word on what the plot of Gentleman Jack Season 3 will entail, but several key plotlines have indicated possible scenarios and directions in which the series may go if renewed for another season. As the official synopsis of Gentleman Jack Season 2 Episode 8, It’s Not Illegal, states, “Anne Lister and Ann Walker’s trip to London is blighted by tension. Anne refuses to introduce Ann to her society friends, and simmering resentments on both sides of the relationship boil over when Miss Walker takes Anne to task over her financial borrowing.”
The plot of the upcoming season, if renewed, can be picked up from this finale episode’s ending and continue to expand further and discover more likely dynamics that bring these characters and plot in a perfect unison narrative. The show creators will pick up in terms of character arcs from the 8th episode to build major plot twists to develop the tale for a potential third season. Hence, the fans will just have to wait and see what happens.
Gentleman Jack Season 3 Episodes
Although the precise amount of episodes for Gentleman Jack Season 3 has yet to be released, if the series is renewed, we may expect at least 8 episodes, each running 60 minutes. The number of episodes may vary, which is ultimately dependent on the plot that the show intends to convey to the audience. Meanwhile, we suggest fans to patiently wait and binge-watch Season 2, which recently aired, in order to update their recollection of certain significant plotlines.

Furthermore, viewers have seen and known that as many series strives to maintain a consistent episode count throughout the season. So, we anticipate that this series may follow a similar pattern. We recommend that fans wait patiently for any such updates because more information will be revealed once the announcement is officially made.
