'Bodyguard' Creator Confirms Season 2 In The Works

Publish date:

BBC Drama Bodyguard destroyed domestic viewership numbers in the UK last year to a great reception. 

The first season of the acclaimed political thriller from Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty), which was quickly picked up by Netflix, follows Richard Madden as Police Sergeant David Budd, a war veteran assigned to protect a polarising Home Secretary played by Keeley Hawes.

Hot off the back of its success, mutterings about a second season have plagued the internet for months with little-to-no confirmation - until now.

A few days ago, Mercurio seemed to confirm on Twitter (in an albeit roundabout way) that he'd hit a roadblock in the development of the second season.

We'll keep you updated as any official word comes in from the BBC.
