One of Netflix's surprise summer hits is coming back for a second season! While quite a few Netflix projects have been cancelled in recent months, many of which after just one season, the streaming service is doubling down on its efforts with Warrior Nun. The sci-fi/action series debuted back in July and spent a good bit of time on the Netflix Top 10 list. On Wednesday morning, Netflix announced that Warrior Nun had officially been renewed for a second installment.
The announcement was made Netflix's NX Twitter account, which included a video of the core cast finding out about the renewal for the first time. In the video, showrunner Simon Barry sat down with Alba Baptista and the rest of the Warrior Nun stars and surprised them with the news.
