Finally, one of the most anticipated comic-book adaptations is coming to Netflix on July 2, 2020. To fill you in, here’s what we have with the first season of Warrior Nun alongside its 2nd of July release date.
The streaming giant isn’t new to the game of comic-book adaptations, though, as some of their biggest hits are from that genre. From the likes of Riverdale to the Marvel Defender series, The Umbrella, Locke & Key, and even our beloved The Walking Dead.
Netflix estrena el 2 de Julio WARRIOR NUN, la historia de una huérfana que despierta en una morgue y descubre que una secta secreta de monjas cazademonios que luchan con metralletas y katanas le ha conferido superpoderes. Cualquiera se resiste a este delirio con amigos. pic.twitter.com/LpXzRZUp71

Warrior Nun, though, will be an adaptation of the comic book series titled Warrior Nun Areala way back in 1994. 24 years later, in September 2018, Netflix has announced that the series will be coming to the platform.
According to Netflix’s synopsis, season one will go as planned:
“After waking up in a morgue, an orphaned teen discovers she now possesses superpowers as the chosen Halo-Bearer for a secret sect of demon-hunting nuns.”
The team behind the series is a fantastic one––with the likes of Van Helsing, Continuum, and Ghost War‘s Simon Barry, spearheading the show. The Canadian screenwriter and producer has been working on his craft––airing most of his series on Syfy. However, he’s not a stranger to the platform as he’s also working on Creeped Out, a kids series that was renewed for a second season.
To go alongside Barry, we have writers David Hayter who is well known for his work for the X-Men universe, Watchmen, and has even appeared in Metal Gear Solid and King Shark. One of the earlier, notable members of the team as he has already committed to working for the series back in September 2018.
For the cast, we’ll be seeing Toya Turner as Shotgun Marry, Alba Baptista as Ava, Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius, Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superion, and May Simón Lifschitz as Chanel.
It’ll be an exciting month of July, people! If you’re excited for this one, remember to drop a comment!
