The brilliant HBO series Gentleman Jack is a comedy-drama created by Sally Wainwright and it follows the dynamic female landowner in 19th Century England as she arrives in Halifax to take care of her family estate. Her appearance and demeanor are very much masculine which becomes a subject of people’s judgment, but despite that, she takes all the judgment head-on and pursues multiple romantic relationships with women. HBO’s brilliant LGBTQ+ series has been canceled after its second season and the fans of the series are not happy with it, but there is nothing to be done about that so we made a list of the best you could watch after Gentleman Jack.
Synopsis: Written only months before Austen’s death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming (and slightly wild) Sidney Parker, in eight thrilling episodes.
