Bodyguard is a six-part political thriller created for the BBC. The series centers around the fictional character of Police Sergeant David Budd (Richard Madden), a British Army war veteran suffering from PTSD, who is now working for the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch of London’s Metropolitan Police Service. He is assigned as the principal protection officer (PPO) for the ambitious Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes), whose politics he despises.
The series began broadcasting on BBC One on 26 August 2018. The first episode was the most-watched new drama in the UK in 2018, and the first series was the most-watched BBC drama in a decade. The finale, with 17.1 million viewers, was the most-watched TV drama since records began, though like-for-like records didn’t start until 2002.
After the successful first season, fans eagerly awaited a second season. People were shocked when in 2021, Bodyguard was confirmed for a new season. With the news of the renewal, fans became curious about the release date. In this article, we will tell you everything about Bodyguard season 2, including the Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer, and more.

Bodyguard Season 2: Release Date
As we already told you, Bodyguard season 2 is official confirmed. However there is no official release date revealed. The highly expected second season probably won’t come out until at end 2024 or early 2025.
The first hint at a second season was when the writer and creator of the show, Jed Mercurio, made a tweet about it. However, considering it featured Robert Madden with Boris Johnson on the poster, it was obviously an April Fool’s Joke.
Apart from this prank, there is some more tangible information about the future of Bodyguard. Richard Madden said in a 2019 interview that the second season was being discussed, while Mercurio stated later that year, “We’re in talks. We’re going through the logistics of it. There’s no real update now,” so it could be a while before we see a second season of Bodyguard.
Bodyguard Season 2: Cast
David Budd is a part that almost can’t be played by anyone but Robert Madden, but there are likely to be a lot of other candidates. These include, but are not limited to, Sophie Rundle, who plays David’s separated wife Vicky, Gina McKee, Nina Toussaint-White, and Ash Tandon, who played Budd’s coworkers and bosses on the force.
We can leave out one character, Julia Montague, played by Keeley Hawes. Fans think she might still be living, and the actress has been asked if this is true. However, unless she comes back in the form of a flashback, we can be sure she won’t be back.
Bodyguard Season 2: Plot
There are few clues about what will happen in Bodyguard season 2, but there is a lot of talk about what could happen. After the crazy things that happened in the first season, it’s clear that David Budd’s job as a security officer isn’t over yet.
Since there are still reports of corruption and plots in Westminster, season 2 is likely to go deeper into the political intrigue and high-stakes drama that made the first season so famous. Budd may have to deal with new risks and problems from outsiders and people close to home.
There may also be a focus on his personal life, including new relationships or family ties that he didn’t know about. No matter what happens, we know it will keep us on the edge of our seats.
