Barry promised more details soon, and English delivered them today in a YouTube video. “I am very happy to announce that ‘Warrior Nun’ is coming back as a trilogy of motion pictures. Once again, a trilogy of feature films. Three,” English announced in the video, clearly thrilled. Fans of the series, which is based on Ben Dunn’s comic book series “Warrior Nun Areala,” will be too, but they may have to wait a while for the saga’s return. English mentions that he can’t announce any actors or writers attached to the project due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, and we can assume that unless they were already made in secret, production on the projects won’t begin until the fight for fair pay in Hollywood is resolved.
Plenty of Netflix shows, from lesbian vampire series “First Kill” to wrestling comedy “GLOW,” have earned the fan campaign treatment, but “Warrior Nun” joins just a small handful that have actually been given a chance to come back and complete their stories. In 2018, the Wachowski sisters’ high-concept thriller “Sense8” concluded with a feature-length finale, while the streamer’s early days were marked by its ability to “rescue” axed cable and primetime shows like “The Killing” and “Arrested Development.” In recent years, the streamer has become much more recognizable for the shows whose stories it abruptly cut short, but luckily, “Warrior Nun” will have more than a two-season legacy — thanks to its dedicated fans. The film trilogy has no set release date at this time.
