Netflix Cancels Warrior Nun After 2 Seasons

By Jessica Lerner 

Warrior Nun has been canceled by Netflix after two seasons.

Showrunner Simon Berry tweeted about the news: “I’ve just found out that Netflix will not be renewing Warrior Nun – my sincere appreciation to all the fans who worked so hard to bring awareness to this series, and for the love you showed me, the cast and the whole production team. It was a privilege to be a part of this.”

The news comes one month after the second season was released.


The second season spent three weeks on Netflix’s Weekly Top 10 for English-language programs, scoring a 26.22 million hour debut before reaching a peak of 27.74 million hours viewed in week two. With 11.97 million hours of viewing in week three, it dropped to No. 9 before being removed from the list.

The series follows a 19-year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a heavenly relic embedded in her back. She learns that she is now a member of the venerable Order of the Cruciform Sword, which has been tasked with battling demons on Earth, and that strong forces from both heaven and hell are attempting to locate and subdue her.

The cast stars Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Tristán Ulloa, Thekla Reuten, Sylvia De Fanti and William Miller.
