Has The Bastard Son been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Bastard Son is a well written and intriguing fantasy drama, blending tried and tested clichés with a fresh flavour of fantasy. After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is The Bastard Son Season 1 about?

The story is not without its clichés and centers on Nathan, a 16 year old bastard who’s thrust in the middle of a war within the European witch community, torn between two sides – the Bloods and the Fairborns. Now, Fairborn witches suspect that Nathan is a dangerous Blood witch, given his biological father Marcus’ lineage. The reason for this fear stems from an old incident known as the Peace Massacre, where Marcus showed up and slaughtered all the fairborns in attendance.

When the fairborn leader Soul shows up in town, during our present timeline, his daughter Annalise just so happens to be attending the same school as Nathan, and as one may expect, the two befriend one another.

There are some wildcard entries in here when it comes to characters, and that stems from Gabriel and Ceelia, who both guide Nathan in their own ways. To balance things out, we have Jessica and Mercury, two antagonist figures who have their own motivations for wanting to stop Nathan. Tensions between the two sides escalate across the season before eventually culminating in a blood-soaked and crazy finale.

We have extensive coverage of The Bastard Son across the site, including a full season review and an ending explained. You can find that HERE!


Has The Bastard Son been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, The Bastard Son has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.

Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, The Bastard Son has had a really good reaction from audiences and critics, with many pointing out strong characters and an intriguing story. There’s certainly a fresh spin on the fantasy genre, that’s for sure! The show is also currently doing a great job hitting the top 10 on Netflix across various regions across the world.

Given the way this show is set up and that big cliffhanger at the end of season 1, we predict that this will be renewed for a second season. This is the perfect sort of show to binge through and very moreish too!

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, there’s a very good case for another season to follow.

If this is renewed, expect Soul’s heart to potentially be consumed by Nathan, while Annalise grapples with her part to play in the future.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
