The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself Season 2: Release date and updates you need to know

Netflix’s The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself gives the viewers a taste of the supernatural world that centers upon Nathan Byrne, an illegitimate son of the world’s dangerous witch, Marcus. The series is based off of Sally Green’s novel, Half Bad. Since its launch in October 2022, fantasy drama fans are wondering if the series has more in store for them. Unfortunately, there is no official statement for season two, yet we keep our fingers crossed for the best. With that said, here is everything you must know about The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself season two:

Has Netflix confirmed a season two of The Bastard Son and The Devil?

The streaming giant has not yet confirmed the future batch of episodes of The Bastard Son and The Devil just yet. Typically, the streamer makes a renewal announcement following a couple of weeks from a series debut. In that way, the fantasy show is available for almost a month now, so Netflix may time a while before deciding the series’ fate. 

Moreover, there is plenty of material for additional seasons, thus we see season two on its way with more stories to be told. 

The Bastard Son and The Devil Season two Airing date

The release date for season two is solely dependent on when Netflix gives an official go-ahead for the project. However, looking at its previous release schedule, season two could probably be dropped by the later quarter of 2023 or perhaps early 2024. 

The series arrived around Halloween time this year. Thus, its future episodes could follow a similar timeline. 

Season one was eight episodes long, so it is safe to assume that the second installment Will have at least 8 if not fewer episodes. 

The Bastard Son and The Devil Season two potential storyline

The second part will be inspired by Sally Green’s second book, Half Wild which serves as a continuation of the storyline of season one. In the novel, Nathan, the titular character, is in search of the Fairborn knife following Gabriel’s disappearance. 

In the last Season, Annalise attained mastery over her powers and fought against Soul, his father. The soul being dead in the finale episode, we still have Jessica as the Big Bad. Appears there are more threats on the way as the dangerous witch, Marcus is still alive. Assuming season two is renewed, fans should expect the main characters, Annalise, Gabriel, and Nathan to get together as a proper couple. 

Therefore, there are many more places for the characters to explore and discover, and it does not seem to us that their stories are all over. The bookworms should not be surprised if the tv adaptation diverts from the original material as what we have already seen in season one. 

Wait for season two’s renewal news to get a solid idea of what the future plot would be like. 

The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself Season 2 Cast

Neither the producers nor the cast has revealed any casting details about part two of The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself. But fans are all excited for the return of their favorite characters- Jay Lycurgo reprising his role as Nathan Byrn, Nadia Parkes as Annalise O’Brien, and Emilien Vekemans as Gabriel. Gabriel has said in a recent interview that she wants to see her character in a more evolved space in the future- from a one-night-stand guy to a lover. The transformation will not be easy for his character as it demands a specific lifestyle. But fingers crossed! Aside from the mainstays, season two is likely to welcome back Isobel Jesper Jones as Jessica Byrn, David Gyasi as Marcus Edge, and Róisín Murphy as Mercury. 

Though Soul’s journey in the book continues, it is unlikely that Paul Ready as Soul will play a significant role in season two since his character is dead by season one’s finale episode. Another cast member who shall be missed dearly is Karen Connel as Ceelia. But considering the supernatural abilities of the characters, they might have a comeback in form of flashbacks or through some powerful abilities. 

 Based on how the story goes ahead, fans might see some new faces as well with the above mix, however, this is just a conjecture. 

 Joe Borton has worked as the screenwriter of the series while Colm McCarthy has helmed it alongside Debs Paterson and Rachna Suri.

 Season one of The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself is available to stream on Netflix. Until we update this space as more information becomes available, why don’t you catch up with season one and return shortly?
