The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself is Netflix’s new blood-spattered teen drama with a twist.

Described by critics as "Twilight meets Skins" and an "X-rated Harry Potter", Joe Barton’s (Giri/Haji, The Lazarus Project) adaptation of the Half Bad book series is a thrilling dark delight for this Halloween.

An eight-episode rollercoaster, this supernatural drama series delivers on bloody stunts, young romance and nail-biting action.

BT TV caught up with two of the show’s lead stars, Jay Lycurgo and Isobel Jesper Jones, who play young witches Nathan and Jessica to find out some set secrets and get their verdict on a potential season 2.

What is The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself about?

The series follows Nathan (Jay Lycurgo), who is the son of Marcus Edge – considered the most powerful Blood witch alive and a Fairborn witch. Abandoned by Marcus and with his mother dead, Nathan is the subject of much curiosity and animosity among Fairborn witches – in particular his own half-sister Jessica (Isobel Jesper Jones).

Nathan’s life is turned upside down when Fairborn leader Soul (Paul Ready) and his daughter Annalise (Nadia Parkes) arrive in town and he suddenly finds himself with a new enemy and secret lover in the same family.

After a series of dramatic events, Nathan and Annalise find themselves joined by French witch Gabriel – played by the show’s super-cool breakout star Emilien Vekemans – and the trio embark on a dark and dangerous mission.

Titans star Jay Lycurgo told BT TV: "The Bastard Son and The Devil Himself is a darkly humorous, romantic, at times very thrilling, at times really funny, but also very raw and human and it’s about the boy who is the son of the most evil witch on the planet."
