The series has supernatural elements dramatically woven into the narrative. After a compelling first season, Netflix renewed it for a second season in August 2020. This announcement brought joy to the fans who were eagerly waiting for its renewal. Let’s dig deeper into more details about Warrior Nun season 2.
What Will Be The Plot of Warrior Nun Season 2?
The story follows a young orphan named Ava, who wakes up in a morgue and soon discovers she’s been imbued with ancient abilities via an artifact embedded in her back. She is now part of the ancient Order of the Cruciform Sword, a group of warrior nuns. The group is tasked to protect the world from demonic forces.
By the end of season 1, Ava finally accepts her sisters in arms (and vice-versa), but not before an evil angel-like figure named Adriel (William Miller) returns to wreak havoc. The ending sets up a new fight for Ava, to protect the halo from being recaptured by Adriel. In addition to this, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. Such as where exactly the portal that Jillian Salvius’ son went through leads, and whether Heaven and Hell are really spiritual realms or, as Jillian theorizes, merely different dimensions.
Season 1 ended on a brilliant cliffhanger, so the expectations from the second season are high. The makers have plenty of subplots and narratives to play with so we can hope that the upcoming season will be an engaging one with an overdose of twists and turns.
What Will The Cast of Warrior Nun Season 2?
The core star cast will remain the same. So, we are assuming that the following members will return for season two:
- Alba Baptista as Ava Silva
- Toya Turner as Sister Mary
- Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius
- Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith
- Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice
- Tristan Ulloa as Father Vincent
- Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superion
- Emilio Sakraya as JC
- Olivia Delcán as Sister Camila
- Joaquim de Almeida as Cardinal Francisco Duretti
- Peter de Jersey as Kristian Schaefer
- Lope Haydn Evans as Michael Salvius
- May Simón Lifschitz as Chanel
- Dimitri Abold as Randall
- Charlotte Vega as Zori
- Guiomar Alonso as Areala de Cordoue
- William Miller as Adriel
- Melina Matthews as Sister Shannon Masters
- Frances Tomelty as Sister Frances
- Fred Pritchard as Diego
There has been no official statement regarding new additions to the cast, so all we can do is hope for some high profile announcements regarding the same in the coming months. Even characters who have died could also return due to flashbacks or even a holy resurrection.
Simon Barry is all set to serve as showrunner for the series. He also serves as an executive producer alongside Stephen Hegyes with Terri Hughes Burton.

Filming of the second season has not yet started yet. But we expect the makers to lock in the script and add their final touches so that they can go out all guns blazing when the filming restarts.
Release date of Warrior Nun Season 2
The fans of the series may have to wait a little more than a year considering the show requires a considerable amount of VFX and CGI work. Moreover, as the film and television productions are currently on lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic adding to the woes, we can most probably expect Warrior Nun Season 2 to release on Netflix by mid-2021.
More seasons to come soon?
Creator Simon Barry has big plans. As Netflix has renewed the show for a second season, barry certainly hopes for more. “Anything between five and seven seasons would be lovely,” he told Inverse.
Barry in an interview with Looper said, “We had ideas out of the first season writing room that we thought would be interesting for a second season if we were lucky enough to get one. So yeah, we definitely encourage Netflix to pursue that. We were holding back so many secrets in a way in season one. The fact that we now have the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, in terms of the mythology of the show. I think it’ll be really exciting to take that journey and unpack what we’ve revealed.”
