In another post, Suranne, who plays the lead character Anne Lister, is seen posing solo wearing a robe with the name of her character inscribed on it. She captioned the image: "We only bloody wrapped on the 2nd season!

"The crew worked so hard. We juggled episodes and directors, Covid, babies, the passing of my father and a world that was masked and in chaos for most of our shoot. We had a summer off when we needed to be with our family and friends then we got through this last five weeks together and faced a few more challenges on the way."
