As expected, Warrior Nun is officially coming back to Netflix for another season! Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming second season of the fantasy drama on the streaming platform.
The Netflix Original is based on Ben Dunn’s comic book series of the same name. Alongside Dunn’s contributions is Simon Barry’s directing talent. The same production house that manages Game of Thrones also spearheads the production of the series––making it one of the most exciting series to watch on the platform.
I mean, Netflix knew they were doing extremely well statistics-wise and it would be a sin to not renew the show for a second season at that point.
As Simon Barry said in an interview:
“When we were finishing Season 1, we had many more avenues to go down story-wise. So we created a folder thinking, hey, if we’re lucky enough to get Season 2, here are some things we could draw from. After seeing the show completed, we regrouped just to talk about ideas.”
On the 19th of August, 2020, the show was officially renewed and was announced by Netflix’s official @NXOnNetflix Twitter account. In the tweet, we see the cast and crew in a virtual call to confirm the second season. Here’s the tweet:

As the show tops charts all around the globe, here’s everything you need to know about the second season according to Simon Barry himself:
“Well, I guess we were holding back so many secrets in a way in season one. The fact that we now have the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, in terms of the mythology of the show. I think it’ll be really exciting to take that journey and unpack what we’ve revealed. The appearance of Adriel, the relationship with Father Vincent, and also as the stakes have changed for Ava and the other sister warriors. For me, it really is building on what we did well in season one — and hopefully doing a better job at season two, if we get it.”
