Bodyguard creator currently in talks with the BBC about Season 2

It's looking very likely.

You'll have to excuse Richard Madden because right now, he's having a moment.

Fresh from winning a Golden Globe for his performance in the wonderful mini-series Bodyguard, he followed this up with a brilliant performance as John Reid in the Elton John biopic, Rocketman.

Aside from this, he has also been linked with playing James Bond, Wolverine and a role in Marvel's new blockbuster, The Eternals.

Not bad for a fella who once played a character stabbed at his uncle's wedding.

Ah, Robb Stark. You foolishly-wonderful character.

Anyway, Madden has made some extremely good choices since his character was killed off in Game of Thrones and now that the recent season of Line of Duty is behind us, it appears that its talented writer, Jed Mercurio, is now switching his attention back to David Budd.

Deadline have reported that Mercurio is “going through the logistics” of a second season of the Madden-fronted drama. At present, nothing official about Season 2 has been confirmed, however, Mercurio has confirmed that he is in talks with the BBC.

"We're in talks. We're going through the logistics of it. There's no real update now," Mercurio told a keynote session at the Banff World Media Festival.

Given the massive success that both Line of Duty and Bodyguard have achieved, we're almost certain David Budd is going to return.

The show gave the BBC its biggest drama debut since records began, grabbing a peak audience of 11 million viewers, or a 47.9 percent share for the finale on BBC One.

In case you haven't seen the show, Season 1 is currently available to watch on Netflix.
