The series premiered just weeks ago on BBC in the U.K. and quickly established itself as a breakout hit. The terror thriller tells the story of war hero David Budd (Madden), who now works as a Specialist Protection Officer for the Royalty and Specialist Branch of the London Metropolitan Police Service. But when he’s appointed to protect Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes), his beliefs and his station come into conflict.
Bodyguard, created by Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty), hits Netflix on Wednesday, October 24. Hey, at least we know it’ll be better than “The Rains of Castamere.”
