Netflix has NOT yet renewed Warrior Nun season 2. However, we believe there is an 81% chance that there will be a season 2.
Official Netflix status: Waiting for approval.

Season 2 will be approved (prediction) with release date in late 2021
Warrior Nun has not been officially blessed for a new season 2, but our algorithm shows that there are high chances that it will be. Our data analysts track several popularity indicators and compute a “TVscorecards.com Renewal score” based on this analysis. Cursed has a 81% renewal score.
Why we think that Warrior Nun’s season 2 will be coming in 2021
There are several reasons that lead us to think Netflix will approve season 2:
- Viewership data is strong and steady. We believe that Warrior Nun will be renewed based on the following: the show started fairly strong, although below blockbuster hits such as Cursed (Also likely to be renewed for season 2). However, Warrior Nun performed remarkably well when it came down to sustaining viewership across the 10-episode long season. The show seemed to be doing better and better compared to other similar shows. The chart below shows the trend of the TVscorecards.com popularity indicator, by episode. A decrease in the indicator is expected as viewers drop off between the episodes, but Warrior Nun somehow managed to sustain a very high viewership and popularity across episodes. This is an excellent indicator that its audience is loyal and will continue to watch the show with the season 2 of Warrior Nun when it is available.
2. The plot opens the door for a season 2. An important consideration in a TV series renewal is the potential for a compelling season 2 storyline. With Warrior Nun, the finale of the first season ends with a cliffhanger: halo-bearer Ava meets angel Adriel who has been trapped for centuries underneath the Vatican catacombs. Ava’s Warrior Nun friends set him free, but he turns out to be a devil. Father Vincent was working to liberate Adriel since the beginning. As a result of his newfound freedom, Adriel calls on demons, and the pack engulfs Ava and the sisters. At the end of the finale, we don’t even know if the Warrior Nun team makes it alive.
3. Viewer scores are high. The show scored well on viewer satisfaction, as expected, with a 76% TVscorecards score. While this doesn’t quite place it as a top-rated shows of 2020, it is still a high score that shows the series has been well received by viewers, a positive factor as well that contributed to our prediction that Warrior Nun will be renewed for season 2 soon.
4. The producter/showrunner keeps talking about the potential for a Warrior Nun season 2 storyline. Another important consideration to find out if a show is going to be renewed is the sentiment of the cast. We scan interviews to find hints that there are positive vibes for a second season. For Warrior Run, we’ve learned that producer/showrunning Simon Barry told Den of Geek that “We’ve thrown a lot of ideas around about where the show could go at the end of the season, of what we want to do next season (…) I know that season two, if we’re lucky to get one, could redefine the show in ways that might change that.” (See article). Simon Barry also gave an interview with INVERSE, stating “Anything between five and seven seasons would be lovely”. Inverse reported that “Barry tells Inverse he already has plans for Season 2 and beyond if Netflix decides to renew”. In an interview with EW, Barry also stated “Given what’s happened at the end of season one and going into a season two, the stakes have increased exponentially for her and are much less personal. (…) If we get a season two, we need to build on what we did in season one and not reproduce it” and there is “obviously fertile ground for season two” (See EW interview).
When will Netflix announce the official status?
We believe that renewal for Warrior Nun season 2 will happen in the late August/September timeframe, although COVID-19 made it hard to predict when renewal announcements officially take place as the pandemic resulted in significant production delays throughout the spring/summer seasons.
