In this post, we are going to talk about Bodyguard season 2 release date, cast, and updates. We have been through an amazing journey with protection officer David Budd, who is a war veteran and got a job to protect home secretary Julia Montague. But she was assassinated, and David Budd became the main suspect. But finally, our hero came out clean, and Luke Aitkens was convicted as the culprit. But this is past now, the burning question is, will we receive another season of Bodyguard? Let’s discuss that!
Bodyguard Season 2 Release Date, Cast, and Updates
The first season concluded, and major kill-off was Julia, so the possibility of the second season with anything with a similar plot is eliminated. If we receive the second season, there will be a new plot, although David Budd will surely be on the same occupation. As of now, there is no confirmation on the renewal of the show. BBC One might be analyzing the data, and considering all the factors to conclude.
Even though BBC has nothing to say, for now, we have a positive attitude from writer Jed. He said in an interview with a private news agency, “There are no plans for the show to return at the moment.”
“I am certainly interested in doing another one (season), although it is a harder format to turn into a returning series than Line of Duty was,” He added. He also said, “I do have a few ideas floating about, but it’s up to the BBC if they want to recommission it, and I have not had a conversation with them about it yet.
So, we can actually see that writer Jed has something in his mind for the second season, he is just waiting for a green signal from BBC. If the show is renewed, the second season will surely be released in 2019, most probably in August.
Talking about the cast, then it is very much obvious that Richard Madden will return as David Budd. But predictions about the other cast members is very hard, as we do not know whether the second season will continue from where the first season left, or we will have something else. However, we can expect David Budd’s wife Vicky, played by Sophie Rundle might return.
