Netflix's Warrior Nun is currently storming her way across the streaming service, and that's a much better position for Ava (Alba Baptista) to find herself in considering how her tale begins. Because being a 19-year-old who wakes up in a morgue with no idea what's going on and a divine artifact renting out space in her back isn't the best way to start a day. But she plans on using this new lease on life to kick the holy hell out of evil.
Created by series showrunner Simon Barry (Continuum, Van Helsing) and inspired by Ben Dunn's Warrior Nun Areala manga comics, Warrior Nun introduces Ava (and viewers) to an ancient order that she's now finding herself a part of, one tasked with fighting demons on Earth. But as she struggles to understand and control her newly-discovered powers, forces from both Heaven and Hell will do their best to control her. But as you're about to see in the following teaser, Ava has no intention of sitting idly by. She's ready to bring out the big "nuns":
Created by series showrunner Barry, Netflix's Warrior Nun stars Alba Baptista (Ava), Tristán Ulloa (Father Vincent), Kristina Tonteri-Young (Sister Beatrice), Lorena Andrea (Sister Lilith), Toya Turner (Shotgun Mary), and Thekla Reuten (Jillian Salvius). Joining the cast are Sylvia De Fanti (Mother Superion), Emilio Sakraya (J.C.), Olivia Delcan (Sister Camila), Joaquim De Almeida (Cardinal Duretti), May Simón Lifschitz (Chanel), Dimitri Abold (Randall), and Charlotte Vega (Zori). Berry, Jet Wilkinson, and Stephen Hegyes serve as executive producers.
