What To Expect From Season 2 of The Warrior Nun?
Since the previous season ended on a cliffhanger it’s expected that the story will be picked up from where the first season concluded.
Showrunner Simon Barry dropped a few hints on what the viewers can expect from the upcoming season in a chat with Looper explaining:
“Well, I guess we were holding back so many secrets in a way in season one. The fact that we now have the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, in terms of the mythology of the show. I think it’ll be really exciting to take that journey and unpack what we’ve revealed.
The appearance of Adriel, the relationship with Father Vincent, and also as the stakes have changed for Ava and the other sister warriors. For me, it really is building on what we did well in season one — and hopefully doing a better job at season 2, if we get it.”
