The BBC is set to make a second series of ‘Bodyguard’.

The 2018 show – created by ‘Line of Duty’s Jed Mercurio and starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes – was a huge hit for the channel and there are now reportedly plans in place for a follow up.

A source told The Sun newspaper’s TV Biz column: “The drama is the most eagerly-anticipated in the world of TV and all the stars are finally aligning.

“Mercurio has always been too preoccupied with ‘Line of Duty’ to apply himself to ‘Bodyguard II’, and after the show’s success, Madden was snapped up by Hollywood.

“Now with both men available, the creative process has kicked off and the BBC are thrilled it could materialise within the next two years.”

Jed has previously hinted that he would love to return for a second series of the show.

He said: “I learned a lot from the success of ‘Bodyguard’. It was heartening to see how an audience would come to something that is fresh and original.

“’Bodyguard’ was just an original concept and people hit the ground running with it. I would love to do something in the next couple of years.”
