Will there be another season of Warrior Nun? Continue reading to find out.
All the viewers who tuned in to watch the show are now wondering if this is the last time they will watch it or if Netflix will renew it for additional seasons. The second season concluded a few weeks ago and has a plot that deserves to be explored further. As a result, it is essential to note that the show has piqued the interest of viewers who want to learn more about the new themes and character arcs that were offered to the audience. So, it is fair to ask about the franchise’s status. If you were looking forward to knowing more about the next chapter of Warrior Nun, then you have reached the right place, as we have listed all the crucial and latest information about the current status of the show.
Here is everything we know about Warrior Nun Season 3’s status with Netflix.
Warrior Nun: Will there be a Season 3?
Unfortunately, the answer is NO! Netflix has officially confirmed that the second season of Warrior Nun is scrapped only after two seasons. The news of cancellation after one season is surprising as the overall reception of the prior seasons has been amazing. As season 1 has an approval rating of 68% based on 34 critic reviews, with an average rating of 6.5/10, and the second season has an approval rating of 100% based on reviews from 10 critics. On Metacritic, the show has a weighted average score of 62 out of 100, based on reviews from 7 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
According to Deadline, Netflix has opted not to order a third season of Warrior Nun. The decision was made a month after the Nov. 10 release of the fantasy drama’s second season. Warrior Nun’s second season rating performance follows the pattern of other scripted series which have been canceled by Netflix as the streamer evaluates viewing vs. cost for their renewal decisions. Season 2 spent just three weeks in Netflix’s Weekly Top 10 for English-language series, peaking at #5. Warrior Nun has built a small yet passionate fan base, which helped it secure a second-season renewal but was not enough to sustain the series in the long run.
Take a look at series creator Simon Barry and some of the fan’s reactions to the sudden cancellation of the show which has led viewers to save the series by trending #SaveWarriorNun on social media platforms:

Warrior Nun Season 3: What could have been the plot?
The series is expected to continue and explore the plotline further from the second season, which establishes that Ava and the Sister-Warriors of the OCS must find a way to defeat the angel, Adriel, as he attempts to build his following into the dominant religion on the planet. Moreover, it is expected to continue from the final season just like the first season which ended with a massive cliffhanger and excited the fans to tune into watching the upcoming chapter. In the final episode, the viewers got to see that, Ava visits the other realm, and returns with a new plan to end Adriel’s unholy charade – but it will require superhuman strength and painful sacrifices.
In addition to this, Barry did hint at wanting to continue the relationship between Ava and Beatrice in a Variety interview, quoting, “There’s definitely something there with Ava and Beatrice in the sense that Beatrice openly admits she’s gay, and that’s a part of her journey and part of our story,” Barry explained. “Does that define Ava? Well, that remains to be seen. I mean, we have more seasons hopefully to tell the story and that will be an ongoing journey, not something that is easily defined in one scene with one life, you know?” He added that they don’t want to “define Ava and Beatrice too quickly or too irresponsibly” and ruin their relationship. “So for now, let’s just say we are open and exploring, much like the characters are,” he said.
Warrior Nun Season 3: Who would have returned?
The series is executive produced by Barry with Stephen Hegyes and David Hayter in season 2. Amy Berg is consulting producer. Terri Hughes Burton is a co-executive producer. If the series is renewed or picked up by another platform then the main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles in the next season are as follows: Alba Baptista as Ava Silva, Toya Turner as Sister Mary / Shotgun Mary, Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius, Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith, Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice, Tristán Ulloa as Father Vincent, and Olivia Delcán as Sister Camila.
There can be new casting announcements in the near future which will be confirmed by the show creators. The recurring cast members of the series are as follows: Joaquim de Almeida as Cardinal Francisco Duretti, Peter de Jersey as Kristian Schaefer, Lope Haydn Evans as Michael Salvius, Jack Mullarkey as grown-up Michael Salvius, Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superion, Emilio Sakraya as JC, May Simón Lifschitz as Chanel, Dimitri Abold as Randall, Charlotte Vega as Zori, Guiomar Alonso as Areala de Cordoue, and William Miller as Adriel.
