In an interview with Digital Spy, creator Sally Wainwright revealed the series will be about Anne and Ann’s relationship progressing, and that the content of Anne’s diaries will continue to inspire the plot.

She said: “They move into Shibden together in series 2 and it's about how they negotiate their married life, conspicuously in public, and how they deal with their detractors and the effect that has on their relationship as well.

“There's no end of stories, the diaries, this huge wealth of knowledge."

If the series sticks with the couple’s real-life story, we may expect them to travel around more.
