Fans of British television series Bodyguard may keep their hopes up as creator Jed Mercurio recently confirmed that a second season for the show was indeed in discussion.

As reported by NME, Mercurio was quoted saying during the Banff World Media Festival that the subject was currently being discussed with the BBC, including matters related to logistics.

The Line of Duty writer shared no further updates, however he added that he had not expected the show to be such a huge success, even went on to achieve "the highest BBC viewing figures since 2008".

Released last year, the six-part political thriller series featured actors Keeley Hawes and Richard Madden, who received a Golden Globe for his convincing portrayal of British Army war veteran turned Police Sergeant David Budd. (ayr/kes)
