Bodyguard Season 2: Will the British Political Thriller return with the second season?

Bodyguard Season 2 Updates: The immense popularity of the Jed Mercurio directed and written and World Production produced Crime Fiction ‘Bodyguard’ definitely demands for a second season after the mind-blowing and heart-dropping finale.

Earning the highest ratings on BBC One since 2008, the political thriller premiered on the same on August 28, 2018.

Bagging numerous awards and Golden Globe and Emmy Nominations along with various others, this drama was well-received both by viewers and critics.

When can we get the release date of Bodyguard Season 2?

Keeping in mind the brilliant performance of the show it can be undoubtedly predicted that the show will have a season 2.

Though BBC One and Netflix have not given any official confirmation regarding the same, one more reason to wait for a second season is that Jed has been actively talking about the renewal of the show along with Bodyguard star Richard Madden who revealed that Jed has been talking to him about how his character will look in the next season.

Both the creator and actor agree that a few months break is much needed both for the show cast as well as to heighten the curiosity of the viewers.

The show revolves around David Budd, a former war veteran and present police sergeant who seems to be suffering from PTSD. Even though he despises the politics of Home Secretary Julia Montague, he is assigned the job of her principal protection officer.

The series talks about PTSD and also takes into account the controversial regulation and monitoring of personal information by the government.

Jed facetiously intrigued the audience even more by suggesting a probable plot for the next season where Budd might be protecting a foreign dignitary or a royal member.

Also, interestingly enough, Julia Montague who was bombed in the first season might be alive and make a comeback in the upcoming season to shock the fans.

Jed wants a storyline that can help in creating even further seasons.

The expected Cast list is:
Richard Madden as PS David Budd
Sophie Rundle as Vicky Budd
Keeley Hawes as The Rt. Hon. Julia Montague MP
Vincent Franklin as Mike Travis MP
Gina McKee as Commander Anne Sampson
Pippa Haywood as CSI Lorraine Craddock
