Bodyguard Series 2: Did The Show Finally Get Renewed In 2022?

The Bodyguard Series 2 is under production. However, it may be quite some time before we see it in theaters. Producers at BBC1 have announced that Jed Mercurio’s political conspiracy thriller will be back for a second season, with Richard Madden set to reprise his role as Police Sergeant David Budd.

Among the most popular dramas of the decade, the first season drew an audience of 11 million for the series finale in 2018, with millions more tuning in via iPlayer. Now, four years after the climactic first season, it’s safe to say that viewers are begging for a second installment.

For some time after his performance, people have speculated that Richard Madden might be a good choice to play James Bond. Following an extensive search, here is all the kompromat we were able to unearth concerning the highly anticipated Bodyguard Series 2.

Bodyguard Series 2 Plot

Season 1 of “Bodyguard” concludes with Budd having successfully identified the conspirators responsible for Montague’s murder, as well as a few government officials who are gaming the system to cover up illegal activity.

After being exonerated of any wrongdoing in Montague’s death, Budd resolves to get treatment for his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in order to mend fences with Vicky and his children. Considering the state of their relationship at the end of the season, it’s safe to assume that Budd and Vicky won’t get back together.

They’re both interested in meeting new people when the show ends, but they plan to keep co-parenting. The British Prime Minister and the head of MI-5, Hunter-Dunn, resign after the truth is revealed. As a result of his escape, Longcross’s backstory and motivations are left open for further investigation in the episode.

It would be fantastic to see the animosity between Longcross and Budd grow in future of Bodyguard Series 2″ despite the fact that there are just a handful of tense and interesting exchanges between the two in Season 1.

Nothing has been confirmed about the “Bodyguard Series 2,” although it’s probable that the show will pick up the story a few years later and introduce fans to a very different Budd.

Richard Madden, who played Tyrion Lannister in the first season of “Game of Thrones,” has “confirmed” he will return for the second season and has said that he has been in talks with Jed Mercurio about the upcoming series.

In a few weeks, I plan on seeing Jed in person to pick his brain and hear what he has to say about anything and everything. As a result, I find myself wondering, “What else could possibly go wrong?” The situation with David, as you well know. Simply put, he endured two months of torture there.

With this guy, where do you plan on going?” Along the same lines as Line of Duty, Jed Mercurio has thrown a few indications that a new cast will be joining a select group of returning characters. It’s not like we were the first ones to switch up the cast, Jed conceded.

But Line of Duty proved that it functions admirably. Indeed, the whole public grasps the idea.” It’s possible that Sophie Rundle, who played David’s estranged wife Vicky in seasons 1 and 2 of Peaky Blinders and Gentleman Jack, will reprise her role, along with Gina McKee’s Commander Anne Sampson, Nina Toussaint-DS White’s Louise Rayburn, and Ash Tandon’s DCI Deepak Sharma.

Despite the fact that there were speculations that Hawes’ character wasn’t actually killed off at the end of season one, it appears doubtful that she will return…

Bodyguard Series 2 Release Date

It’s not easy to find a satisfactory response to this question. Fans of “Bodyguard” knew they would have to wait a while for fresh episodes after the first season premiered in August and September 2018 due to the long gap between seasons in other British shows.

Although Madden, Mercurio, and others connected to “Bodyguard” have commented on a second season being essentially inevitable ever since the first concluded, at this time the series has not been formally renewed or cancelled. The only question is when.

Madden looked confident that Season 2 of BBC’s “Bodyguard” would happen when he told Deadline in 2018: “I’m going to meet Jed in a couple of weeks, to have a conversation and see what’s in his amazing head.”

Midway through 2019, during the Banff World Music Festival, Mercurio said that he had been in talks with BBC, but that Bodyguard Series 2 had not yet been greenlit.

Actor Nicholas Gleaves, who played Roger Penhaligon in Season 1 of “Bodyguard,” told RadioTimes in late 2019 that he had spoken with a producer who “definitely guaranteed” a second season, but until then, nothing is certain.

By 2021, Madden’s commitments to “From Now” and “Eternals” will be over, clearing the way for him to reprise his part in “Bodyguard.” If BBC doesn’t get production started soon, we probably won’t see new episodes of Bpdyguard Series 2 until late 2022 or early 2023.
