After two seasons, Netflix has decided to terminate “Warrior Nun,” Variety has learned.
The choice was made just over a month after the fantasy action show’s second season aired on Netflix in its entirety on November 10. The second season of the show was announced in August of the same year that the first one debuted on the streaming service.
“Warrior Nun” is based on Ben Dunn’s original comic book character Warrior Nun Areala. Ava Baptista’s character Ava Silva serves as the series’ focal point. After an ancient item is inserted into Silva’s back, she is drawn into the realm of the Order of the Cruciform Sword, a sect of nuns who fight demons and other strong forces on Earth.
The television show also included Toya Turner, Sylvia De Fanti, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, and Olivia Delcan in addition to Baptista.
The television series was created by Simon Barry, who also acted as executive producer and showrunner. In addition to Amy Berg serving as consulting producer, Stephen Hegyes and David Hayter also served as executive producers. Co-executive producer Terri Hughes Burton was involved.
According to Netflix watching data, the second season of the series spent three weeks in the top 10 series rankings on the service. It had a 26.22 million hour debut before reaching a peak of 27.74 million hours in week two. With 11.97 million hours of viewing in week three, it dropped to number nine before being removed from the list. Even if those statistics are not insignificant, they were not sufficient to renew the show for another season.
RDF’s Hegyes stated that by filming the show in Spain, the business has been able to forge connections with regional talent, buyers, and directors when he spoke with C21 last month. RDF is now in discussions to create an office in Europe, probably in Madrid, or to form a partnership in 2023.
The cancellation was initially reported by Deadline.
