Warrior Nun was a well-received supernatural action fantasy drama based on the comic book series Warrior Nun Areala created by Ben Dunn that stars Alba Baptista in the titular role, and many fans are eager to learn everything there is to know about Warrior Nun season 2.

Netflix has a number of great shows within its impressive library that are based on comics, with some of the best programs making the list being original series. Daredevil, The Umbrella Academy, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Warrior Nun are just some of the superb titles available on the streaming service right now, the last of which has just begun its journey with a second chapter being in very high demand with fans of the initial outing.

Warrior Nun season 2 release date: When will it air?

There is no officialrelease date for Warrior Nun season 2 available at this time, and it may be a good amount of time before any kind of new information comes out about the next chapter. There is a chance if they start things up in regards to production at some point this year that a premiere date could happen in 2022 or 2023, but that is just speculation at this time.

It's safe to assume most of the cast will return for season two, including the following:

• Alba Baptista as Ava Silva

• Toya Turner as Sister Mary/Shotgun Mary

• Thekla Reuten as Jillian Salvius

• Lorena Andrea as Sister Lilith

• Kristina Tonteri-Young as Sister Beatrice

• Tristan Ulloa as Father Vincent

• Sylvia De Fanti as Mother Superion

Emilio Sakraya figured prominently in the first half of season one before JC and Ava broke up, so it's possible he might return somehow in future episodes.

Expect William Miller to play a bigger part this time too in the role of Adriel, the pseudo-angel who started this whole ordeal. In the season one finale, he was outed as the villain behind everything, and it would be weird for him to be sidelined moving forward.

And remember: even characters who have died could also return due to flashbacks or even a holy resurrection.

Now that Adriel has revealed his true self to the world, Ava and her fellow sisters will fight his army of demons and hopefully save Shotgun Mary in the process.

Thanks to that sinful cliffhanger, fans have a lot of questions that need answering in season two, including what happened to JC, where Michael went, and how Ava will find the strength to defeat Adriel.

The sisters will also have to reckon with the fact that The Order of the Cruciform Sword is built on a lie, one perpetuated by Father Vincent's betrayal, so expect some serious ass whooping there too.

Speaking to Inverse, showrunner Simon Barry revealed that the writers have already started planning what could happen next.

"When we were finishing Season 1, we had many more avenues to go down story-wise. So we created a folder thinking, hey, if we're lucky enough to get Season 2, here are some things we could draw from. After seeing the show completed, we regrouped just to talk about ideas," he said.

But what about the narrative beyond season two? How much story could Warrior Nun cover?

"These things tend to reveal themselves when the story starts to feel like it's building to a crescendo," Barry said (via Inverse). "You do want to find a point where you can wrap. With Warrior Nun, I would give it a window because we're still so early in the process of developing it."

One particularly intriguing plot thread which will be explored further in season two revolves around Beatrice's queer identity. Thankfully, Barry fully intends to delve into that further too, telling Fangirlish: "Should we get the chance to keep going then we'll definitely want to double down on Beatrice's story and backstory and find out where that goes.

"I can't say if it'll resolve into a full-blown relationship with Ava, but I do like the idea that everyone had to come to this story with their own journey and their own battle. And I love that Beatrice is one of our strongest and fiercest combatants in this story. She presents her journey in such a beautiful and nuanced way."

Barry will build on the foundations set by season one, telling Looper that he wants to explore "the appearance of Adriel [and] the relationship with Father Vincent, as the stakes have changed for Ava and the other sister warriors". He elaborated: "Having the opportunity to look back at the other Warrior Nuns, I think, is a really great opportunity for the show. Telling those stories of the other Warrior Nuns through history could be amazing and also enlightening to the present."

And Barry has also said that he plans to delve deeper into the character of Lilith.

"It's one of those imperatives that we dig down and understand what she's going through and what's happened to her," he told Uproxx. "In building Lilith as the presumptive Halo bearer and the most eager to be selected, we knew we were dealing with a trope-y character study that exists in many, many other stories, but we didn't want to use her the way other stories would have used her, which would have been to be the classic foil for Ava.

"By doing all we did to her, by forcing Lilith, someone we thought we knew, to change, it meant that the audience had to go through this re-examination as well. The journey that Lilith took was very much part of our plan from day one. In fact, if she ever comes across in the first three episodes as being a little bit one-note, it's because we knew we were going to flip it."
