Jed Mercurio, creator of hit BBC One drama Bodyguard, has confirmed he’s in talks to bring the show back for a second season.
Speaking at the Banff World Media Festival, Mercurio said: “We’re in talks. We’re going through the logistics of it. There’s no real update now.”
He also confirmed the BBC has not yet officially greenlit a second season.
Mercurio said he was surprised that the first season of Bodyguard was such a huge hit. “I know there’s an adage that your failure should be surprising. But the level of success was surprising,” he said.
