*Spoiler alert*

There are parallel movie franchises running through the main Conjuring Universe, including the Annabelle spin-off and the New Line Cinema’s The Nun spin-off. The Nun follows the life of Sister Irene, who travels to a Romanian monastery with Father Burke to investigate the case of a nun who allegedly took her own life. A slew of paranormal episodes leads the duo to conclude that a portentous demon named Valak is haunting the abbey and is in possession of the people living there. The end of the movie does not end with a conventional defeat over the demon.

The sequel will possibly pick up from where its progenitor left off and bring Sister Irene tete-a-tete with Valak once again. In addition to that, the sequel will reportedly pick up in 1956, four years after the first film. The setting will move to France from Romania. The murder of a priest brings Sister Irene face to face with Valak in the sequel.
