Netflix’s Warrior Nun looks like the campy, wild, scifi joyride of our dreams and we so here for it. Yes, it looks slightly ridiculous. There are a group of elite nuns tasked by an ancient order to fight demons. And smack dab in the middle of all of this is Ava, played by Alba Baptista, a young woman who wakes up in a morgue with unimaginable powers and a weird symbol/artifact embedded between her shoulder blades. Keeping all of that in mind, it looks like the kind of ridiculous that is set to entertain you and take you on a ride like no other.
The fact that Simon Barry created the show, based on the popular comic book series created by Ben Dun called Warrior Nun Areala, makes us want to watch Warrior Nun even more. Top it all off with Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice, Tristán Ulloa as Father Vincent, Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith, Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius, and Toya Turner as Shotgun Mary. and you’ve got a show brimming with possibilities!
Inspired by the manga novels, Warrior Nun revolves around a 19 year-old woman (Alba Baptista) who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artifact embedded in her back. She discovers she is now part of an ancient order that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth, and powerful forces representing both heaven and hell want to find and control her.
