If you love a bit of the sexy supernatural (who doesn't?) then you've likely been patiently awaiting Netflix's latest fantasy series, The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself.
The show finally dropped today (28 October), based on the YA book trilogy, Half Bad, by author Sally Green. It follows protagonist Nathan Byrn, the illegitimate son of a dangerous witch, plus a whole host of other supernatural teenagers.
Book fans have been thoroughly invested in this one leading up to its release (and we're officially shipping #Nabriel). But will the show get a second series? Here's everything we know about The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself season two so far.
Has The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself season 2 been confirmed?
We don't have Netflix confirmation on a season 2 *just* yet sadly. The show was only released on 28 October so, being a new series, it's unlikely that Netflix would announce a second season for a brand new show right away.
So, we'll have to wait a while to see how popular this one proves to be. And fingers crossed Netflix shares an S2 announcement soon!
Plus, it's worth remembering that The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself is based on Sally Green's Half Bad book trilogy. With that in mind, it's likely that further seasons could happen, given that the book content is already there to inspire the show.
What have the cast said about The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself season 2?
Speaking to Cosmopolitan UK in the below video, the The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself cast shared their ideas for what could happen in a season two.
Isobel Jesper Jones, who plays Jessica, shared, "I want a Gabriel/Jessica showdown. Not even a showdown, I just want a weird scene ... I don't know what Jessica would do with Gabriel."
Nadia Parkes (Annalise) then responded, "I wonder if she'd try and shapeshift into him," adding, "Emilien's come up with some crazy ones."
Sharing his own thoughts for S2, Emilien Vekemans (Gabriel) joked, "I have great ideas. I think a lot of people underestimate my ideas. But, yeah, I have some ideas about how actually my parents could be monkeys, and there's a whole episode where I'm just looking for my parents."
On where the idea came from, Emilien added, "I went to Gibraltar. And there's so many monkeys everywhere, and I thought 'OK, this is where my parents are actually. They're monkeys.'"
Responding to Emilien's, err, interesting ideas, Jay Lycurgo (Nathan) responded, "I don't get that. I'm trying to understand it right now, and he's told me this loads of times. And I'm like, 'Where does that make sense, anywhere in the story?'"
Emilien then joked, "It's genius. You wouldn't understand. I'm gonna write my own show."
Hey, somehow we don't feel as though that one's going to happen. Sorry, Emilien.
Who might star in The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself season 2?
OK, we're crossing everything for The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself to get a second series. And, if one goes ahead, we'd hope to see our fave lead cast members returning.
That's: Jay Lycurgo as Nathan Byrn, Nadia Parkes as Annalise O'Brien, Emilien Vekemans as Gabriel, and Isobel Jesper Jones as Jessica Byrn. Plus, there's also David Gyasi as Marcus Edge, and Róisín Murphy as Mercury.
When might The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself season 2 be released?
Unfortunately we'll have to wait for season two confirmation before getting any idea of a release date. Series one dropped on 28 October 2022 (just in time for Halloween). Given the supernatural plot line, it'd make sense for any future instalments to also coincide with spooky season - so here's hoping we'd see a season two for October 2023!
The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself is streaming now on Netflix.
