‘Warrior Nun’ is a fantasy adventure drama series that follows a young woman who gains superpowers and a new lease at life when she is branded as a paranormal warrior. Albeit reluctantly, she embarks upon a mission with an all-women group of fierce warriors to hunt down demons and other evil forces. Based on the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala by Ben Dunn, the show is created by Simon Barry.
Upon its premiere in July 2020, the supernatural series was lauded by the critics and audiences for its surprisingly upbeat tone, action-packed narrative, jaw-dropping twists, ultra-Catholic moral debates, and a thrilling performance by the lead, Alba Baptista. In case you are curious about the renewal and other details of ‘Warrior Nun’ season 2, here’s everything we know.

Warrior Nun Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 1 revolves around a young paraplegic woman named, Ava, who has spent her whole life in an abusive orphanage until her death. While in the morgue, a nun brands a divine halo on Ava’s corpse, thus injecting life back into her lifeless body. After waking up, Ava discovers that she can not only stand on her own two feet but also kill demons using her new-found superpowers. She is filled with angst and disdain for the orphanage but is compelled to go on a mission to fight evil supernatural forces for the ancient order.
Throughout the season, Ava strives to strike a balance between her new and old life. However, she is joined by a group of fiery warrior nuns like herself, and together they head out to serve the good and save the earth. Multiple times in the season, Ava is forced to make difficult decisions that clash with her freedom, morality, and sometimes even her love life.
In Season 2, Ava might continue to explore her superpowers and learn to use it to save the good from all things evil. And to fulfill that purpose, Ava can hold hands with other warriors who might exercise their collective superpowers to prevent the earth from turning into hell. We can expect them to go out on a limb and fight demons, witches, ghouls, etc., to restore the order of the world.
