BODYGUARD fans have already dubbed the BBC drama as the Beeb’s best in 20 years as the nail-biting thriller has had viewers hooked for the past six weeks.
The show has now come to end and series creator Jed Mercurio revealed he’d be interested in returning to the political thriller. Here’s all you need to know.
Will there be a Bodyguard series 2?
Although it is yet to be confirmed but 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.
On September 19, 2018, it was revealed that the BBC faces a fight to keep Bodyguard for season 2 as Netflix has bought the distribution rights – this means more than likely there will be a second series.
After the last episode ended on September 23, 2018 The Sun exclusively revealed that Jed is writing FOUR spin-off shows from Bodyguard.
What have the cast and crew said about Bodyguard series 2?
Although Jed confirmed he would be very interested in returning for another series, he accepts the ever rising popularity of actor Richard Madden means he may not have the chance.
“He’s the genuine article, a real leading man,” Mercurio told Radio Times. “And I think this role has put him very much in the spotlight for bigger things.
“So the practicality may be that we have to work around his availability if we are lucky to get him back.”
Jed is also the creator of BBC series Line of Duty whose fifth season was delayed as he was writing Bodyguard, so it would be unlikely to be before 2020.

After Juliet was killed in an explosion in episode four there has been much speculation that Julia was still alive.

But however, there was no sign of her in the season finale and she is in fact really dead.
