While you may have initially thought that 'Bodyguard' was a one-and-done series, it now looks like another season is on the way - just not any time soon.
In a lengthy interview with Deadline, Richard Madden revealed that showrunner Jed Merucrio is working on a second season, but that it won't be on screens any time soon. "When we did the show, it was just going to be a one-off, it’s own thing, because Jed was still writing the show as we were doing it," Madden explained.
"But the show’s engaged with so many people, and it’s engaged with me, because I’m fascinated by that character. I’m fascinated by a man who’s gone through so much, and I’m very keen to see what happens to him two years later."
As you can imagine, Madden - who's currently starring in 'Rocketman' - said that he was "very keen" to go back to the role of DS Budd, but added that it had to be right for everyone. "We’re going to give it a breath and do it justice. If we come back to do another one, I want to do something as different as the first series was, and not just repeat the cycle, repeat the formula."
"I want to do something totally different and I’m excited to see what Jed comes up with in that way."
'Bodyguard' is currently available on Netflix.
