Video: Cast learns that Netflix has ordered a second season of Warrior Nun

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

One of these days, I'm going to take some time to watch the first season of the Netflix series Warrior Nun, a live-action show loosely based on Ben Dunn's manga-style comic book Warrior Nun Areala. I'll get my watch-through done sometime before Netflix releases the second season, which was announced yesterday in a fun way.

In the tweet embedded below, you can see video of series creator / exectuive producer / showrunner Simon Barry breaking the news to cast members Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, and Olivia Delcan.

Warrior Nun stars Baptista as 

Ava, 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. 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.

Turner plays Shotgun Mary, "a woman loyal to the sisterhood more than the Church"; Andrea is Sister Lilith, "a legacy Nun who is committed to her beliefs, which causes her to overstep and over-reach in her entitlement"; Tonteri-Young plays Young Sister Beatrice, "a powerful Sister Warrior and the team's resident strategist"; and Delcan's character is Sister Camila, whose "special skill is computers".

Also in the cast are Tristan Ulloa as Father Vincent, "the spiritual and strategic leader of the Order of the Cruciform Sword"; Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius, "CEO of a tech startup who has challenged the Vatican’s power directly by making a discovery that could make religion obsolete"; and Emilio Sakraya as JC, "the charismatic leader of a group of alluring petty criminals".
