Latest news about ‘Warrior Nun’ Season 2
The fantasy horror series ‘Warrior Nun’ Season 2 is based on the comic book character Warrior Areala Nun by Ben Dunn. Not much is known about the plot for the new season, which has successfully raised curiosity of fans. The mystery and intrigue, thanks to season one's plot twist, will draw fans to how Ava deals with the new information she now has about the origins of the mysterious Halo artifact. So stay tuned. The ‘Warrior Nun’ Season 2 has been shot and filmed in many locations within Spain.
In an earlier interview with Refinery 29, dated July 2020, Alba Baptista opened up about what fans can expect in terms of storyline with emphasis on Adriel’s fascinating backstory which will be explored in Season 2. “The writers have it all thought out for an eventual season 2. I love Adriel’s character. I think he’s so dense and he has a lot of layers to his story, which we will discover further on”.
Also spilling details on how the second season might be a much wilder ride, Alba said, “There’s going to be a big, big reveal for an eventual season 2. It was well thought-out. It wasn’t just an accident. It’s another plot twist for the spectators to guess on for another year. They’ll have to wait for another season."
In an interview with Inverse dated July 2020, director Simon Barry revealed he had had several ideas on how to take the story forward. He said, “I definitely have thoughts. When we were finishing Season 1, we had many more avenues to go down story-wise. So we created a folder thinking, hey, if we're lucky enough to get Season 2, here are some things we could draw from. After seeing the show completed, we regrouped just to talk about ideas”.
Also opening up on the ideal number of seasons he thinks would be apt for the story of 'Warrior Nun', Simon Barry said, “Well, I wouldn't say it's a hard number. These things tend to reveal themselves when the story starts to feel like it's building to a crescendo. You do want to find a point where you can wrap. With Warrior Nun, I would give it a window because we're still so early in the process of developing it. Anything between five and seven seasons would be lovely”.
In an interview with CBR.com dated July 2020, when Netflix had not yet greenlit a Season 2, Simon had shared, “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”.
In another interview with Looper.com dated July 2020, Simon had explained, “Well, I guess 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”.
‘Warrior Nun’ Season 2 has been created and directed by Simon Barry. It is based on the comic book manga character Warrior Areala Nun that had been created by Ben Dunn. The series has been produced by Zack Tucker Gangnes, Peter Welter Soler, Matt Bosack and Todd Giroux. The series has been backed by production company Reality Distortion Field.
The trailer has not been released yet but the teaser of the series has been dropped by the makers. You can watch it here.
