Gentleman Jack Creator is looking for a new home for the show


It is possible to still have hope Gentleman Jack

The BBC and HBO cancelled the co-production after it aired for two seasons. Sally Wainwright said the news caught her off guard—but that it’s not all bad news.

“It’s been a bit of a surprise really because it’s been doing really well, certainly in this country,” Wainwright “We were ready to go again, the BBC certainly [is] up for going again.”

As Wainwright explained it, the show must find a global streaming partner. “I think all those other options are being explored at the minute given that there is a desire to go on with it amongst quite a lot of people.”

Wainwright said she remains flummoxed about HBO’s decision—and she’s particularly gutted for the show’s dedicated fandom.

“It’s been a very successful show in all areas for them,”She said. “It’s had fantastic reviews, it’s had a very respectable audience and, on top of that, it’s had an impact on the community of gay women. We have the most extraordinary fanbase, they organize all sorts of events.”
