What is ‘Warrior Nun’ about?

Warrior Nun is loosely based on a 1993 manga comic book series created by Ben Dunn. The 10-episode season follows a young woman named Ava Silva (Alba Baptista), who finds herself in the middle of a war between heaven and hell. 

“Inspired by the Manga novels, Warrior Nun revolves around a 19-year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artifact embedded in her back,” the Netflix description reads. “She discovers she is now part of an ancient order that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth, and powerful forces representing both heaven and hell want to find and control her.”

Will the series return for Season 2?

The season finale of Warrior Nun ended with a major cliffhanger. So, fans are understandably anxious to find out if the series will return. But, as of now, there is no official word on whether or not the show will get a second season. 

Netflix usually waits a few months before announcing any series renewals. And unlike most broadcast TV networks, the streamer doesn’t share their ratings information, which makes it difficult to gauge how well a show is doing. 

However, if Warrior Nun does well in terms of viewership, there’s a good chance Netflix will renew it. Fans will just have to keep their fingers crossed.

The ‘Warrior Nun’ showrunner does have plans for a second season 

Netflix may be mulling their decision on whether or not to renew Warrior Nun. But fans can take comfort in knowing that the series’ showrunner already has a second season mapped out. In an interview with CBR, creator/executive producer Simon Barry revealed that he wrote Season 1 with a future storyline in mind.

“We had ideas out of the first season writing room that we thought would be interesting for a second season if we were lucky enough to get one,” Barry said. “So yeah, we definitely encourage Netflix to pursue that. They have a very strategic process where if the audience shows up, the second season and third season happens. So we knew that going in and we were going to be part of that process as a new show to find an audience to make sure that could happen.”

Barry is ready to make a second season, as long as Netflix is on board. And he noted that he hopes to start working once the streamer gives him the green light.

“The writers and I discussed at length many ideas for Season 2,” Barry added. “And we look forward to being able to implement them.”
