Netflix “Warrior Nun” fans aren’t giving up after the show was recently canceled by the streamer!
Earlier this month, Netflix opted not to order a third season of Warrior Nun. The decision was made a month after the Season 2 release of the fantasy drama.
Warrior Nun‘s second season ratings performance follows the pattern of other scripted series which have been canceled by Netflix as the streamer evaluates viewing vs. cost for their renewal decisions. Season 2 spent just three weeks in Netflix’s Weekly Top 10 for English-language series, peaking at #5. Warrior Nun has built a large passionate fan base, which helped it secure a second season renewal but was not enough to sustain the series in the long run. Per Deadline
Many are calling the fanbase small because the show wasn’t as popular but that’s no one but Netflix fault because the streamer rarely promoted the series. The fanbase is pretty big.
The #SaveWarriorNub hashtag is forming huge numbers on Twitter.
Creator Simon reacted:
We hope the show can be shopped around to other platforms because the fans truly deserve it.
Inspired by the manga novels, Warrior Nun hails from creator/executive producer Simon Barry, who also served as showrunner. It 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 now is 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.
