Witch's Son Netflix Series 'The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself' Trailer
"Wouldn't you rather die than be a Blood Witch?" Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for a new streaming series titled The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself, which is one hell of an appealing title. The series is based on the Half Bad trilogy of books by Sally Green. Sixteen-year-old Nathan (Jay Lycurgo) is the illegitimate son of the world's most dangerous witch. Fearing he will follow in his father's footsteps, Nathan is closely monitored throughout his childhood. As the boundaries between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fray, Nathan - along with mischievous Annalise and charismatic Gabriel - will soon discover who he truly is. The series features a score by British pop group Let's Eat Grandma. Starring Jay Lycurgo, Nadia Parkes, and Emilien Vekemans. They're joined by an exciting mixture of new & familiar faces including Isobel Jesper Jones, Paul Ready, David Gyasi, Kerry Fox, Liz White, Karen Connell, Fehinti Balogun, Misia Butler, as well as multiple Brit Award + Mercury Music Prize nominee Roísín Murphy making her drama debut. This looks like an edgier / more violent Harry Potter, but it also looks super cheap and campy.
