Warrior Nun showrunner discovers the campaign has a powerful backer
Netflix has come under increasing fire for canceling an alarming number of fantasy shows, with more than 25 kicking the dust since early 2020 alone. That’s overwhelming for a variety of reasons, but none of the episodic originals that have bitten the dust has sparked as much online fury as the untimely death of warrior nun.
It’s easy to see why, as the supernaturally tinged comic book adaptation drew huge viewership and became a top 10 hit in dozens of countries around the world immediately after both seasons ended, and the critical acclaim was there to to live up to the cult following – especially when the second run ranks as Netflix’s top-rated episode of all time.
Creator and showrunner Simon Barry has encouraged fans to fight the good fight, and the filmmaker reacted with awe to discover that a heavyweight in the media world has dug deep into the grounds warrior nun‘s untimely death has captured the attention and imagination so much.
Gaining support and mainstream headlines is all well and good, but so far no network or streaming service has even hinted that they’re interested in reviving Warrior Nun. As we saw at Hannibalno amount of pandering or solicitation from either audiences or key creatives is enough to warrant a lengthy delay in execution, but perhaps the movement will eventually bear fruit.
Ironically, it’s Netflix that has a habit of acquiring shows from other companies, not the other way around.
