The preview shows Anne (Jones) and her wife, Anne Walker (Sophie Rundle), establish their home together at Shibden Hall in Halifax. The relationship causes a stir among some who wish to teach Anne "consequences."

Joanna Scanlan joins the cast as Anne's former lover Isabella "Tib" Norcliffe. Gemma Whelan, Lydia Leonard, Gemma Jones and Timothy West also star.

"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," an official description reads.

HBO shared photos from Season 2 in February.

Gentleman Jack is created, written and directed by Sally Wainwright. The new season premieres April 10 on HBO and BBC One.
