Warrior Nun is a Simon Barry-created American fantasy drama streaming television series based on Ben Dunn’s comic book character Warrior Nun Areala.
Originally conceived as a feature film adaptation, the project was reimagined as a television series for Netflix after the company received a first-season series order. Filming took place in several places throughout Andalusia, including Antequera, where the fictional Order of the Cruciform Sword’s headquarters was filmed.
Alba Baptista, a Portuguese actress who plays Ava Silva, a paraplegic orphan who discovers she has supernatural abilities and is forced to join an old order of warrior nuns, narrates and leads the series. Baptista makes his English-language debut in this series. Toya Turner, Thekla Reuten, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, and Tristán Ulloa are among the cast members.
The series premiered on Netflix on July 2, 2020, to mostly positive reviews. The sitcom got renewed for a second season in August 2020. The story of a 19-year-old lady who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine relic embedded in her back is told in Warrior Nun. She learns that she is now a member of the ancient Order of the Cruciform Sword, which has been tasked with combating demons on Earth, and great forces from both heaven and hell are on the lookout for her.
