Looks like we may have to wait a bit longer for season two of Bodyguard

Richard Madden has confirmed that season two of Bodyguard won't be filmed this year.

The news comes a shortly after creator and writer Jed Mercurio confirmed they were "in talks" about a follow up season - although nothing had been officially confirmed just yet.

Now, Madden has said that if there is a another season of Bodyguard, it won't be for awhile - as they have decided they want to do the story justice and not rush things.

He told Deadline:

"So I'm very keen to work with Jed and work out how to move on the next bit of the story.

"But we decided we're not going to rush it and shoot something this year.

"We're going to give it a breath and do it justice. If we come back to do another one, I want to do something as different as the first series was, and not just repeat the cycle, repeat the formula.

"I want to do something totally different and I'm excited to see what Jed comes up with in that way."

He also admitted he had been "fascinated" by his character, David Budd, and was "very keen" to find out what would happen to him two years later.

He continued:

"When we did the show, it was just going to be a one-off, it's own thing, because Jed was still writing the show as we were doing it.

"But the show's engaged with so many people, and it's engaged with me, because I'm fascinated by that character. I'm fascinated by a man who's gone through so much, and I'm very keen to see what happens to him two years later.

"Where will this man be, in terms of his mental health, in terms of his wife and children, in terms of his career? He's not going to sit back and retire, and he's not going to pick a normal job. He's going to be engaged in something interesting."
