Jed Mercurio’s Bodyguard is among one of the most liked series on OTT platform Netflix. The show was released on August 26, 2018, and ended on September 23, 2018 with 6 episodes in its first season. Soon after the release of its first season, show gained a lot of popularity among audience and now all the viewers are waiting for the second season of the show ‘Bodyguard’.
When Bodyguard Season 2 Will Release On Netflix
This is a very tough question to answer. The first season of the show was released in the year 2018, but now it’s 2021 and till now there is no update on the same. Once, in the year 2019, Jed Mercurio took to his twitter handle, and replied to David Schneider’s tweet “Rees-Mogg’s remarks were isolated incident” says James Cleverly” by re-tweeting him as “What’s really holding up development of #Bodyguard Series 2 is the quest for any dramatically sympathetic reason not to kill off the cabinet minister in the first five minutes”, from here he somewhat hinted towards the second season of Bodyguard.

According to some sources, Jed Mercurio and Richard Madden, both of them were planning for working on the project ‘Bodyguard Season 2″ but because of their tight schedule as they are preparing for BBC One’s TV series ‘Line of Duty’, they haven’t got time to work over the project. Another cast of the show Nicholas Gleaves (who plays The Rt. Hon. Roger Penhaligon MP) confirmed in an interview that there will be a Season 2 for sure, but when it will be filmed and released is again in the lap of future.
Plot Of Bodyguard Season 1
A British political thriller TV Series produced by World Productions as a part of ITV Studios for the BBC is about a military veteran David Budd (played by Richard Madden) who fought in the Middle East, preventing a suicide bomber from blowing up a train and allowing the arrest of the terrorists who planned the attack. Due to his heroic act, he is promoted to serve on the detail of Julia Montague, the Home Secretary.
