Bodyguard boss speaks out on plans for series 2 – with more explosive fights than ever before

BODYGUARD'S boss has spoken out on plans for series two – with more explosive fights than ever before.

The hit BBC thriller aired in 2018 and starred Richard Madden as the titular Bodyguard, assigned to protect Keeley Hawes' Home Secretary character.

The series featured plenty of shock twists, which was to be expected considering it was written by Line of Duty creator, Jed Mercurio.

Since the series ended, fans have been desperate to know if it will return for a second season, and now Simon Heath has given fans a cryptic update.

Simon is the CEO of World Productions, which has collaborated with Jed on Line of Duty and subsequently, Bodyguard.

Speaking to Metro about the show, he said: "Bodyguard is a big beast to put back together. I’m reasonably confident we will see it in due course."

He continued: "I knew it would be compared to Line Of Duty but the excitement I was feeling at each stage of that process made me feel like we were on the right track.

"It was nice because we got to try different things. There are lots of big action sequences in Bodyguard that we probably hadn’t done that many of in Line Of Duty up to that point.

"We probably now do more of those as a result of realising we’ve got the resources and the technical skills."

Simon's comments come after Jed previously revealed he could see Bodyguard running for up to four series.

He said: "It's probably fair to say we would probably approach any thoughts of a second series with the idea that it would create an opportunity for a third or fourth.

"We do feel very privileged and fortunate that there's been such a response that it gives us that opportunity to at least think about doing more."

Meanwhile Richard, 34, previously told The Hollywood Reporter: "We've been talking about it and I spoke to Jed about a month after the show had finished airing over in the UK and we sat and decided, 'Let's give it at least a year while we work out how to do something better'".

Bodyguard is available on Netflix.
