Netflix will soon release one of the most-anticipated comic-adaptations in July 2020. Here’s what we know about season one of Warrior Nun including its July 2nd release, who’s involved and what we can expect.
Netflix has a long history of comic-book adaptations. Some of the most popular shows on Netflix have been based in this genre. They include The Umbrella Academy and multiple Marvel Defender series. There is also the Millarworld universe. Movies like Polar and The Last Days of American Crime are examples of this.
The series is inspired by the 1994 comic series Warrior Nun Areala. Netflix announced the series for the first time in September 2018.
Here’s what you can expect from season one, according to the Netflix synopsis:
“After waking up in a morgue, an orphaned teen discovers she now possesses superpowers as the chosen Halo-Bearer for a secret sect of demon-hunting nuns.”
Now let’s take a look at what else we know:
Emre Kaya's update to the Netflix page and subsequent Netflix page updates have confirmed that Warrior Nun season 1 will be available on Netflix worldwide in July 2020.
The ten episodes are available on Netflix starting July 2, 2020.
