The trailer for the new Netflix series has landed showing iconic Irish musician Roísín Murphy making her acting debut.

Based on the 'Half Bad' trilogy of books written by Sally Green, the series follows Sixteen-year-old Nathan (Jay Lycurgo), the illegitimate son of the world’s most dangerous witch. Fearing he will follow in his father's footsteps, Nathan is constantly monitored.

But as the boundaries between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fray, Nathan - along with mischievous Annalise and charismatic Gabriel - will soon discover who he truly is.

Leading the cast is Lycurgo ('Titans', 'The Batman', 'I May Destroy You'), Nadia Parkes ('Starstruck') and Emilien Vekemans ('Transferts'). Multiple Brit Award and Mercury Music Prize nominee Murphy joins them, playing Mercury, an evil witch.

The rest of the cast includes Isobel Jesper Jones, Paul Ready, David Gyasi, Kerry Fox, Liz White, Karen Connell, Fehinti Balogun and Misha Butler.

Murphy spoke to NME about the role saying, "They just offered me the part. I was a bit surprised to be honest and I didn’t believe I could do it. But I gave it a go at home on the phone, just reading the script, and everybody loved it. So out of curiosity, I took the job.”

'The Bastard Son & The Devil Himself' is written by Joe Barton ('The Lazarus Project', 'Giri/Haji'). Adrian Sturges ('The Third Day') and Steve Clark–Hall ('Avenue 5', 'The State') produce. Barton, Andy Serkis, Jonathan Cavendish, Will Tennant, Phil Robertson executive produce alongside Colm McCarthy ('Black Mirror: Black Museum', 'The Girl with all the Gifts'), who directs the first four episodes. Rachna Suri and Debs Paterson also serve as directors. 

It also boasts an entirely new score created by British pop group Let’s Eat Grandma.
