Netflix has released its spooky season lineup and we’re looking forward to all the upcoming releases slated to come out at the end of the year. One of the shows scheduled to arrive on Netflix soon is the fantasy series The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself.
The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself is an upcoming British original series based on the Half Bad trilogy of Young Adult books written by Sally Green. Joe Barton signed on as showrunner with episodes directed by Colm McCarthy, Debs Paterson, and Rachna Suri.
It was first announced in March 2022, but we had no idea when it would be released on Netflix. Now, we’ve learned that it will be making its way to Netflix by the end of 2022, and we’re so excited to see it.
