Anyone who's looking for a good netflix binge worthy series right now please watch warrior nun. Warrior nun never disappoint us! Excellent written and executed series. Amazing casts! Warrior nun is a badass series and a masterpiece. The plot is really great! Its really good and the action scenes are just so hot and amazing! The acting are so good its 10/10. I really love the chemistry of ava and beatrice. It is really rare to have a queer couple with a good story line. I want ava and beatrice to have a happy ending. It will really break my heart if netflix will not give us season 3. So please give us season 3!! #RenewWarriorNun #WarriorNunS3

Warrior Nun is one of the best show that captured my heart. It deserves all the love and support. WE NEED SEASON 3

Everyone please go watch and stream this show nonstop to get it renewed (muting doesn't count as a view) also go rate seasons on IMDB/ rotten tomatoes and metacritic. Warrior Nun is truly a rare show. It flawlessly blends an interesting plot, punchy action sequences, detailed world building, complex characters, commentary on the blurred line between science and religion together to create an incredible fantasy show, not to mention one of the best slowburn ships (sapphic or otherwise) ever seen on tv. After the recent cancellations of other sapphic content (e.g. the wilds, first kill…), a renewal would be extremely meaningful to a community that feels increasingly underrepresented and undervalued in current television media, while other mlm content such as heartstopper gets double renewals with little to no effort despite warrior nun performing better. Please help us to secure a season 3 by signing and spreading this petition to others.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21 ):
Kids say (16 ):

This absorbing Netflix supernatural mystery series with a Catholic framework starts in the middle of its story and takes its time getting where it's going, but is enjoyably bonkers along the way. Though in the comic Sister Shannon Masters is the leader of the nun contingent of the great war against good and evil, Warrior Nun wastes no time dispatching Shannon and putting a new character at the center of the action. Ava is young, confused, recently returned from the dead, and much more interested in making a new life for herself after enduring a short and miserable previous existence than in learning about the angel's halo that was hastily implanted in her back in a conflict-laden moment.

Thus her whole chosen-one quest temporarily takes a back seat to an unusual but compelling storyline where Ava hooks up with a group of glamorous drifters who bum around a (unnamed but beautiful and atmospheric) Spanish city, squatting in mansions. Once the titular warrior nuns catch up with her, the story takes on beats that will be familiar to fans of other girl-power monster slayers (Buffy, Xena, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina jump to mind). But the actors are fresh and interesting, the setting and backstory compelling, and the mythology just meaty enough to carry a few seasons of fun adventure. There's no fighting this Warrior Nun in the battle for your next binge.
