Netflix Canceled Warrior Nun After 2 Seasons

#SaveWarriorNun started trending on Twitter after creator Simon Barry announced it would not be renewed for a third season.

Warrior Nun, a seedy action-fantasy series that debuted its second season last month, has been canceled by Netflix, a person with knowledge of the decision told IndieWire.

Starring Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, the series quickly amassed a passionate online following, and the show’s second season even spent three weeks on Netflix’s weekly top 10 list for English language television, peaking at number 5. “Warrior Nun” Creator and showrunner Simon Barry tweeted Tuesday that the show would not be returning to Netflix, trending the hashtag #SaveWarriorNun on Twitter.

Hey, the “SOS” (Save Our Show) hashtag movement has worked before—who says it can’t this time?

Warrior Nun tells the story of Ava Silva, an orphan and paraplegic who discovers that she possesses supernatural powers and is forced to join an ancient order of warrior nuns. The show is based on a manga series titled Warrior Nun Areala and first debuted in the summer of 2020 before ending its second season in November.

In its first week, Warrior Nun season 2 was streamed for 26.2 million hours. The following week saw 27.74 million hours of viewing, putting the show’s first season in the top 10 along with it. (“Warrior Nun” season 2 pulled in 11.97 million hours in week 3.) Such catch-up viewing can happen when a new season debuts on Netflix.

Those are all pretty good weekly performances for a Netflix Original, but the service — and the streaming industry at large — has become very cost-conscious of late. The end, in this case.

Toya Turner, Thekla Reuten, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Sylvia De Fanti and Tristán Ulloa all star on the show alongside Baptista, who made her English-language debut with Warrior Nun. Barry executive produced the series, starring Stephen Hegyes and David Hayter.

Deadline was the first to report the news of the show’s cancellation.
