BODYGUARD is an award-winning BBC One series starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes. The show scooped an NTA for Best New Drama in 2019 and looks set for a second series. Will there be a Bodyguard series 2? Although it is yet to be confirmed, it is more than likely that the show will come back. Series creator Jed Mercurio told the Daily Mirror: “I have got some ideas for a second series, but it is worth waiting until the run is finished to see which bits worked and which bits didn’t work for the audience.” But a new series will have to wait until after the next series of Line of Duty - as Jed writes this as well.
