Bodyguard Season 2 Story
In the first season of Bodyguard, Julia Montague was murdered by Luke Aitkens aka Matt Stokoe, and his gang. What was Aitkens’s motive for killing Julia? Basically, he wanted to prevent Julia from becoming a Prime Minister and transferring the powers she has to the security services. But what he did was finally exposed and Aitkens was put to jail. With him, Budd’s Lorraine Craddock was also jailed. He was the one who gave Aitkens Julia’s Itineraries her security details after Aitkens gave him the cash to do so.
Not only this, Train bomber, Nadia was not a helpless victim but he really was a member of the bombmaker. And then he and his terrorists worked with Luke Aitkens so that they can build more bombs for Aitkens in return for cash. On the other hand, David Budd was cleared of not having any kind of involvement in Julia’s death and then he tried to cure his mental health problems and tried rebuilding a relationship with Vicky and their children. Is this the end? Probably No! There are chances that The bodyguard could revisit the places of the first season and wrap up the loose ends in Julia’s death.
When Anne Sampson leaked the information of Kompromat that contained scandal information regarding the prime minister. Therefore, the Leader of the county was forced to resign and the boss of MI5 Stephen Hunter Dunn aka Stuart Bowman was also forced to resign.

This will be revealed in the second season for sure. Julia’s ex-husband Nicholas Gleaves aka Roger Penhaligon also planned to undermine Julia including her loyal supporters- Chief Whip and Mike.
