What is the Warrior Nun season 2 release date? Based on the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala by Ben Dunn, Warrior Nun was one of the breakout hits of 2020 for Netflix. Filled with action, magic, and betrayal, the first season had us all begging for more.
The TV series revolves around the 19-year-old quadriplegic orphan Ava, who, after having an ancient artefact embedded in her back, develops supernatural powers. If the show’s title didn’t give it away already, Ava is forced to join an order of warrior nuns and fight the forces of evil, whether she likes it or not. After the first season ended on a huge cliff-hanger Netflix answered our prayers and announced that Warrior Nun season 2 is on its way.
That’s right, the Order of the Cruciform Sword is coming back along with all those pesky demons. So ahead of this holy Netflix release, The Digital Fix has communed with the higher powers to bring you the inside scoop on the Netflix series. Here we discuss the Warrior Nun season 2 release date, cast, plot, trailer, and more.
Warrior Nun season 2 release date speculation
There is no set release date for Warrior Nun season 2 just yet, but fear not, friends, Netflix has confirmed the show is coming in winter 2022. Simon Barry, the showrunner has even confirmed that he’s seen the new episodes,
In 2020, shortly after the first episodes of season 1 hit our small screens, the streamer took to social media to share the good renewal news via a promotional video.

Filming for season 2 officially wrapped in November 2021. Showrunner, Simon Barry, took to Twitter in December of that year to tease that he had “watched all the episodes” of the new season – meaning that it is likely that editing for the production is finished, or at least is in its final stages too.
During its annual Geeked Week in June 2022, Netflix confirmed that Warrior Nun Season 2 will be released in winter 2022, making a December release date pretty much guaranteed — it’s just a matter of when.
Warrior Nun season 2 trailer
A release timeframe wasn’t the only Warrior Nun news that Netflix brought to Geeked Week. The streamer also unveiled a short teaser for the upcoming season.
The trailer didn’t reveal anything about how the season 1 cliffhanger — meaning we’re still in the dark about the Order of the Cruciform Sword’s showdown with Adriel, but we did see more of Ava’s ongoing journey (she can walk on water now, by the way).
Warrior Nun season 2 plot speculation
The last shot of the first season saw Shot Gun Mary being swarmed by the forces of evil before the screen cut to black. So, needless to say, it is pretty clear that season 2 will have to follow on directly from the events of season 1.
At the end of the first season, we got the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers. Basically, the freshmen run of Warrior Nun concluded in the middle of a full-out battle, with Adriel summoning a ton of wrath demons.
Demons? Best horror movies
After we see the gang face off against Adriel and try to save their comrade, there are still plenty more questions that season 2 needs to answer as well.
Where is JC, and will we see him return? Where is Michael after we saw the youngster run through the quantum portal? And of course, we need some more answers about Father Vincent’s betrayal after he called Adriel “Master” – the big one being why did he do it?
Betrayal: Best thriller movies
Another big question is the mystery surrounding Sister Lilith. At the end of episode 7, we saw Lilith return to the land of the living with similar powers to the Tarasks.
However, we still don’t know why she returned, the source of her powers, or if her amnesia is real or not. Barry confirmed that Lilith will be a major player in Warrior Nun season 2, so hopefully, the character’s mysteries get cleared up in the next chapter.
“It’s one of those imperatives that we dig down and understand what she’s going through and what’s happened to her,” he told Uproxx. “By doing all we did to her, by forcing Lilith, someone we thought we knew, to change, it meant that the audience had to go through this re-examination as well.”
Although Warrior Nun is based on the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala, we, unfortunately, can’t look towards that piece of source material for narrative clues for season 2.
It is art! Best anime series
This is because the story for the Netflix series is vastly different from Dunn’s creation – for example, Ava isn’t the main character in the graphic novels; instead, it is Sister Shannon, who you may have remembered died in episode one of the freshmen season.
So we will have to stick with Barry’s words for now.
Warrior Nun season 2 cast speculation
It is pretty clear that all the main players will be back for Warrior Nun season 2. We couldn’t have the series without our leading lady Alba Baptista as Ava Silva.
Similarly, it is unlikely that we won’t be seeing Toya Turner as Sister Mary, Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith, and Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice again.

Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius will also be making a comeback, as will Tristan Ulloa as Father Vincent and Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superior. Considering how the first season ended with his character unleashing hell’s forces, we are also willing to bet that William Miller as Adriel will be making a comeback to our small screens too.
Here is the expected cast list for Warrior Nun season 2:
- Alba Baptista as Ava Silva
- Toya Turner as Sister Mary/Shotgun Mary
- Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius
- Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith
- Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice
- Olivia Delcan as Sister Camila
- Tristan Ulloa as Father Vincent
- Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superior
- William Miller as Adriel
Currently, it is unknown if Emilio Sakraya as JC will be making a comeback, or if Lope Haydn Evans will be reprising his role as Michael Salvius after his trip across the portal.
It is also unclear if any new additions have been added to the mix. Be sure to bookmark this page as more news continues to come in.
