Warrior Nun Season 2 Plot
The series showed the evil force escaping from the tomb the Vatican had held him in for years and summoning his demons into this world. After some of the jaw-dropping twists in Season 1, and the ending of the series in the middle of a battle with everyone’s fate in the air, everyone was left with a lot of unanswered questions. Warrior Nun Season 2 will pick up from where the previous season left and will definitely take us on a ride filled with action, excitement and a few revelations here and there.
Warrior Nun Season 2 Cast
We did see many big names associated with the show like:
Alba Baptista as Ava, Tristán Ulloa as Father Vincent, Toya Turner as Shotgun Mary, Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice, Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius, Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith, Emilio Sakraya as JC, and many more.
It was announced in October 2021, that Season 2 would be having three new faces:
Meena Rayann playing the role of Coptic nun/journalist Yasmine Amunet, Jack Mullarkey playing the role of a charismatic activist Miguel, and Richard Clothier playing the role of the Vatican’s Cardinal William Foster.
What is Warrior Nun about?
Warrior Nun revolves around the story of a 19-year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life, a halo cemented on her back, now destined to fight demons on earth becoming a member of a secretive, holy collective of demon-hunting warriors. The most striking and unique thing about the series was that the show even while dealing with a supernatural item like a halo did not fall into the science versus religion fight but rather was able to build a healthier relationship between the two.
How many episodes are there in Warrior Nun?
Warrior Nun Season 1 has 10 episodes that run between 37 minutes and 51 minutes.
