Warrior Nun renewed for season 2 at Netflix

Warrior Nun renewedNetflix has renewed the action-fantasy series Warrior Nun for a second season of demon fighting.

As reported by Variety, Netflix tweeted a short video of showrunner Simon Barry breaking the news to main cast members Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young and Olivia Delcan. Their delighted reactions at the news reflect those of the show’s fans.

The first season of Warrior Nun debuted on Netflix on July 2 and it incorporated different themes such as religion, politics, and complex friendships.

As previously reported, the series is an adaptation of the manga-style American comic book, Warrior Nun Areala, created by Ben Dunn and first published in 1994. The story follows the adventures of Sister Shannon Masters, the titular warrior nun, who belongs to a fictional combatant branch of the Catholic church.

The rest of the cast include Tristan Ulloa, Sylvia De Fanti, Thekla Reuten, Emilio Sakraya, Joaquin de Almeida, and Lope Haydn Evans.

Barry discussed the epic season 1 finale that ended with a battle that left uncertain the fates of several of the main characters. He said:

“We actually wrote a version of the ending that was a little bit more conclusive. I mean, it had a bit more meat on the bone in terms of what happened. And when we submitted that script to Netflix, they were like, ‘Hey, what if you cut this a little short?’ We were all aghast at first. It was like, “Wow, that’s daring and a little bit dangerous…But I think we were basically being given tacit approval by Netflix to take some risks and to walk that line.”

Here is the official synopsis of Warrior Nun season one:

“Caught in the middle of an ancient war between good and evil, a young girl wakes up in a morgue with inexplicable powers. Her search for answers brings her to The Order of the Cruciform Sword, a secret society of warrior nuns sworn to protect the world from evil. While juggling her responsibilities as the chosen one with the normal obstacles of a teenage girl, this mysterious fantasy drama is full of mystery, action, adventure, and teenage romance, proving our main character might fight in the name of good, but she’s no angel.”
