Bodyguard was a massive hit for Netflix as it erupts in 2018. But since then, everyone was asking about Bodyguard season 2, and it has not happened yet. So is it coming?
For people who don’t recall, the show followed David Budd (played by Richard Madden, who won a Golden Globe Award for its role) as he was assigned to protect Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes). Even though David vehemently disagrees with Julia’s politics, he has to keep her alive, and that is only the beginning of a dangerous operation.
The first season finale attained over 17 million viewers when it aired in the UK on BBC One, and the Netflix audience was also enraptured by the series. However, its potential is still the biggest mystery of this sequence.
How Many Seasons Of Bodyguard Are There?
As the above indicates, so far there has only been one period of Bodyguard, which is still available on Netflix to flow if you would like to rewatch it (or haven’t seen it yet-which you should instantly ).
Besides Keeley Hawes and Richard Madden, the cast also includes Sophie Rundle (Gentleman Jack, The Nest) as David Budd’s estranged wife Vicky, Gina McKee (Line of Duty) as David’s supervisor, along with Nina Toussaint-White (Doctor Who) as Detective Sergeant Louise Rayburn, who could turn into an enemy or an ally for his or her
Is Season 2 Of Bodyguard Going To Happen?
For this date, the show has not formally been renewed for season two, but it has not been cancelled either. This is one of the series that’s been living in limbo.
The future of this series seems to rest with founder and author Jed Mercurio, who’s been occupied with another little series TV fans might know called Line of Duty.
Simon Heath, that produces both shows together with Mercurio, awakened interest again back in March 2021 when he told UK website Metro he’s”reasonably confident” we’ll see the second season of Bodyguard.
But that is his perspective and not an official media release from Netflix or the BBC, so there are not any official word on the show’s future.
Bodyguard Season 2 Release Date
If you’re Bodyguard season 2 on Netflix, it is going to be interesting to see when the streamer lines up its release. The series aired in August on the BBC but clearly, those two things don’t have to coordinate.
But any Bodyguard season 2 release date could be welcome since it has been years to wait up to now. Chances are whenever it drops, if it does come to fruition, Netflix audiences will flock to see where the characters are now.
