Jed Mercurio would “absolutely” like to do another series of Bodyguard on BBC1, but is worried that he may not be able to hold on to leading man Richard Madden.
The creator of BBC1’s hit thriller said he is keen to continue the story of principal protection officer Richard Budd, but added that discussions with the BBC about Bodyguard series two will only begin once series one has finished.
“You have to wait until the end because anything can happen,” Mercurio said in the latest issue of Radio Times magazine.
“Some shows do nosedive at the end, or some piece of content could become incredibly controversial and affect the way the show is seen. In the end, you have to accept that the broadcaster holds all the cards.”
