The exceptionally brilliant crime thriller from BBC is one of the most anticipated series right now. The first season was crafted in a beautiful way, where the plot of the story developed around a legislative document to strengthen anti-terrorist activities in England. The series revolved around an influential politician who is holding the post of Home Secretary and her bodyguard. There are a lot of twists and turns in the series, and now the series is expected to air its second season.
So let’s explore the possibility of a second season and the underlying facts a fan should know if he is planning to watch the second season.
What’s the current status of the second season of The Bodyguard?
An official announcement is yet to be made, but there are ample chances of having a second season. The first season left many unanswered scenarios, and they ought to be answered in the second season. The first season made a firm ground to have a second season, and fans are truly excited to see it. The first season was premised on the anti-terrorist legislation, which Julia Montague, the Home Secretary, was trying to pass in the parliament, and even that issue remained as it is, so this suffices to prove that the second season is inevitable.
