After an intense fan campaign to revive the show, Warrior Nun is set to make a comeback as a trilogy of feature films. The fantasy drama series, which was canceled by Netflix after two seasons, will now continue its story on the big screen.
The news was confirmed by executive producer Dean English, who expressed his gratitude to the fans for their support. He stated, ‘It’s because of you and your incredible energy that we keep pushing forward to make these stories. You guys really make it all worthwhile. So, thank you so much for your continued support.’
Warrior Nun, based on the comic book Warrior Nun Areala by Ben Dunn, follows the story of Ava, a young woman who is resurrected after death and discovers she is part of an ancient order tasked with fighting demons on Earth. The show premiered on Netflix in July 2020 and received positive reviews, leading to its renewal for a second season.
However, the series was later canceled by Netflix in December, much to the disappointment of its dedicated fanbase. But the fans didn’t give up. They launched a passionate campaign on social media and even organized billboard and other promotional efforts to save the show.
Their efforts paid off when series creator Simon Barry announced on Twitter that Warrior Nun would be returning. He thanked the fans for their voices, passion, and amazing efforts, promising that the show would be even more epic than before.
While the details of the film trilogy are still scarce, it is an exciting prospect for fans of the series. The trilogy will continue the story of Warrior Nun in a new format, allowing for a more expansive and immersive experience. It remains to be seen whether the original star, Alba Baptista, will reprise her role as the titular Warrior Nun.
One challenge that the production team faces is the ongoing strikes in Hollywood involving actors and writers. This means that no announcements can be made regarding the creative talent attached to the movie trilogy at this time.
Despite the challenges, the future looks bright for Warrior Nun. Executive producer Dean English hinted at the possibility of expanding the Warrior Nun universe with additional films and TV series featuring familiar characters. This opens up a world of possibilities for fans to explore and dive deeper into the mythology of the show.
Warrior Nun has proven to be a unique and captivating series, blending supernatural adventure with strong performances and a reverent writing style. The Spanish backdrop adds an extra layer of richness to the storytelling, making it a visually stunning and immersive experience.
As the Warrior Nun trilogy prepares to hit the big screen, fans can look forward to a continuation of the story they love, with the potential for even more exciting adventures in the future. The dedication and passion of the fans have shown that their voices can make a difference, and they have successfully brought back a beloved series from the brink of cancellation.
