There Netflix goes again, shooting down a pretty decent series after just one season. This time, the streaming giant has axed the British supernatural series “Half Bad: The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself.” Now, fans are left with a lot of questions and few answers. I guess it’s time to read the trilogy written by Sally Green that the series is based on.


In the series, “Sixteen-year-old Nathan (Jay Lycurgo) is the illegitimate son of the world’s most dangerous and deadly 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.



“Half Bad” features a score by the British pop group Let’s Eat Grandma and stars Jay Lycurgo, Nadia Parkes, Emilien Vekemans, Isobel Jesper Jones, Paul Ready, David Gyasi, Kerry Fox, Liz White, Karen Connell, Fehinti Balogun, and Misia Butler, as well as multiple Brit Award + Mercury Music Prize nominee Roísín Murphy making her debut.


“Sadly, yes, Netflix [has] cancelled [the show],” series creator Joe Barton posted to Twitter in response of the news saying, “Very proud of it and really liked the people I got to make it with. Sorry not to be able to finish the story.”
