Netflix has formally announced that Warrior Nun will be getting a second season.
The series, inspired by the comic of the same name, tells the story of Ava (Alba Baptista) a young woman, cared for (to use the term generously) at an orphanage run by nuns in Italy since a tragic accident over a decade before that killed her parents and apparently left her a quadriplegic. After she ‘dies’- that’s doesn’t stay the status quo. Before she can be buried a battle between warrior nuns and something not of this dimension crashes into the crypt and the dying combatant, Shannon (Melina Matthews), has a holy glowing relic transferred from her own back to that of the circulatory-challenged Ava. The relic revives Ava and she escapes into the night, her limbs now fully-functioning but understandably confused as to what’s happening. At first simply wanting to explore the freedom and life she’s been denied so far, she is pursued by forces of light and darkness who want what she has in their eternal battle… but who can she really trust?
The show got mixed-to-positive reviews with many noting the ‘Euro-Buffy‘ feel to proceedings and that at the international production allowed the series some spectacular scenery and often had the feeling of an exotic European travelogue.
There’s no details on when the show will start filming again. Without revealing spoilers, the first season ended on some pretty earth-shattering unholy events and it will be interesting how the show picks up and resolves those for another run…
