This series will be based on a trilogy series, titled “Half Bad” which has been written by Sally Green. Joe Barton, the writer of the Netflix series, described The Bastard Son & Devil Himself as a spiritual adaptation of the book series. Barton admits that his work was originally supposed to be a film, and when he began rewriting it into a series, he did make some big changes from the book series, Half Bad.
As of now, we have very little information as to how much The Bastard Son & Devil Himself will be a reflection of Half Bad. Hopefully, the fans of Half Bad cut the creators some slack and allow them to make the changes as long as the adaptation pays homage to the original source material.
