The Bodyguard TV series was one of the most-viewed new shows of the 21st Century when it aired on the BBC back in August, but if you missed it the first time around - or you don't have access to the BBC iPlayer  - never fear: the Bodyguard TV series hits Netflix today!

That's good news for US viewers, who may still be wondering how to watch the Bodyguard TV series after it took the UK by storm earlier this year, and even better news for the show itself, which will surely only continue to surge in popularity as it makes a home for itself on the biggest streaming platform around. 

Bodyguard is only available on Netflix US from today, but don't worry if you don't have access as there's still plenty of viable ways to watch it in the meantime, regardless of where you are in the world.
