‘The Bastard Son and the Devil Himself’ viewers have been hoping for a second season, but unfortunately, it is no longer in the cards after the show’s cancellation.
On December 10, one of the series’ stars Jay Lycurgo expressed his sentiments via a tweet that reads:
“‘The best YA fantasy show Netflix has ever made’ Thank you Nathan.”
Three photos are attached to his tweet, one of them being a screenshot of his emotional message.
“Oh how there was so much more to tell. Me, emilien and nadia felt very emotional about the shows end. We weren’t emotional about the decision. These things happen. But more emotional that we won’t be able to tell the story of Nathan, Gabriel and Annalise again,” he wrote at the beginning of his statement.
He continued by expressing his gratitude to the show’s creators, as well as telling everyone to be “proud of the story already told.” Of course, the 24-year-old actor didn’t forget to thank the people who supported the series, which received critical acclaim.
Lycurgo then concluded his statement writing,
“I can’t tell you how grateful I am! Let’s always find the positives, and remember sometimes the bad times are the good times xx.”
Aside from his message, he also shared a photo of the show’s positive reviews, as well as an image of the series’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which received 92 percent in audience score.

Netflix cancelled The Bastard Son And The Devil Himself and I feel… idk. Angry, betrayed, heartbroken? sure. but when it's one amazing poc and/or LGTB+ led series after the other? it's just exhausting.
