Warrior Nun Returns As Film Trilogy

Warrior Nun Saved August 15 Announcement

After two seasons, Netflix stopped making Warrior Nun, but thanks to fans' backing, the show will come back as a trilogy of movies. Executive Producer Dean English used social media to say that Warrior Nun had been picked up and that Ben Dunn's comic book character would be turned into three movies. Netflix has nothing to do with the three movies.
After the show based on the comic book Warrior Nun Areala by Ben Dunn was canceled, there was a strong push for it to come back, both online and off. Even though it didn't have enough viewers to keep it from being canceled, the show still has a strong fan group, which English says is what made him decide to bring it back. Now, English has said that all of these fans' hard work has paid off in the end.
I need to start by thanking all of you loyal fans. It’s because of you and your incredible energy that we keep pushing forward to make these stories. You guys really make it all worthwhile. So thank you so much for your continued support. I am very happy to announce that Warrior Nun is coming back as a trilogy of motion pictures. Once again, a trilogy of feature films. Three.- Dean English
When the show was dropped at the streamer in 2022, it joined a growing list of sapphic shows that had been put on hold. But from the beginning, there were people who never gave up hope that the story would be told again. Given that Hollywood is currently on strike, English's video statement from the executive director was short on details.
One thing we need to touch on involves the strike in Hollywood involving actors and writers. And it’s due to that, that we cannot make any announcements today on that front. Some may ask, ‘Does this perhaps infer that there’s going to be a universe being launched of Warrior Nun, which could expand into films and TV series following characters that we already know?’ The answer to that question is yes. And there will be more details in the future.- Dean English
Simon Barry created and ran the Warrior Nun series. It's about a 19-year-old woman (Alba Baptista) who wakes up in a morgue with a new start in life and a divine artifact stuck in her back. She finds out that she is now part of an ancient order whose job is to fight demons on Earth, and that strong forces from both heaven and hell want to find her and take control of her. Kristina Tonteri-Young, Lorena Andrea, Toya Turner (1st season), Tristán Ulloa, Thekla Reuten, Sylvia De Fanti, and William Miller all worked with Baptista.
It's still not clear where the movies will come out in theaters, on another streaming service, or through some other method. Warrior Nun will live to fight another day, no matter what happens. She's not going out with a whimper; she's coming back with a bang.

Conclusion

After two seasons, Netflix stopped making Warrior Nun, but thanks to fans' backing, the show will come back as a trilogy of movies. Executive Producer Dean English used social media to say that Warrior Nun had been picked up and that Ben Dunn's comic book character would be turned into three movies. Deadline has found out that Netflix has nothing to do with the three projects.
He also hinted that the release of these movies could lead to a movie world based on the characters from the series. English thanked fans for their support of the show in his statement.
