Have you seen Bodyguard? Recently, star Richard Madden spoke with Deadline about the future of the hit BBC TV show.
The drama, which airs on Netflix in the U.S., “tells the fictional story of David Budd (Richard Madden), a heroic but volatile war veteran now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for the Royalty and Specialist Branch (RasP) of London’s Metropolitan Police Service.” The cast also includes Keeley Hawes.
In the interview, Madden said he’s not sure what a second season of Bodyguard would be about:
I’m going to meet Jed in a couple of weeks, to have a chat and see what’s in his brilliant brain. So I’m like, what can happen next? You know, with David. Because he had a hell of a couple months there. Where do you go with this guy?”
I also thought, maybe it’s going to be like American Horror Story where, in the second series, it’s a whole different incarnation of it, and I’m a royal and Keeley is on my protection team. And you get all the rest of the actors back, and we all do different things. But who knows what’s in Jed’s mind. I’m very keen to hear.
Also I think, you know, David Budd, he walks about London with a bomb on. I mean, everyone definitely knows his face now. He can’t really slip back into police work again. What’s his life like after that?”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Bodyguard? Would you watch a second season?
