Netflix chopped off yet another series from its list just two months after its premiere
The famous streaming service which played “Half Bad: The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself,” which is a young adult fantasy drama, canceled the series within a span of 2 months from its debut.
After its eighth episode premiered in the series on 28 October, two months earlier from now, Netflix had officially decided that it would not allow continue the show with another season.
The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself
Adapted from a novel written by Sally Green, the show was created by Joe Barton and proved popular enough to be listed among Netflix’s top ten most-watched originals within the first week of its release, with a rating and review of 93% from Rotten Tomatoes, 7.6/10 from IMDb, and quite a talk in social media by newly earned fans.
Half Bad is a show we are incredibly proud of, which gained stellar reviews, along with a fiercely loyal global fanbase. While we are disappointed not to continue the story, we have loved working with such a talented cast and crew on bringing our beloved show to life. pic.twitter.com/kt3nAhvrew

But despite the fact that there had been enough support and rating on the series, which received positive reviews from the critics had still been slashed by Netflix as an original itself from its box.
The cast members of the series are Nathan Byrne played by Jay Lycurgo, who is the Bastard Son, Nadia Parkes as Annalise O’Brien, Emilien Vekemans starring as Gabriel, and many more.
The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself is not the only series Netflix had canceled this year. The Midnight Club had also been removed from the list after its debut, and the directors had taken their story to Amazon Studios where it had been smoothly approved.
It is always suspense as to whether or not Netflix will give any new debut series a second chance for its next season, and unfortunately The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself had also joined the long list of other TV shows Netflix has canceled or worse abandoned.
It is not clear until now as to whether the team of this series is going to plan on keeping the series alive as it got better praise from the audience, or will it be completely shut down (which seems to be not possible though.)
