Warrior Nun - Season 1 !LINK!

Developed as a feature film adaptation, the idea was re-imagined as a television series for Netflix when the service had given the production a series order for a first season. Filming takes place in multiple locations in Andalusia, Spain, such as Antequera,[1] where the headquarters of the fictional Order of the Cruciform Sword was filmed.

Warrior Nun - Season 1

The series is narrated and led by Portuguese actress Alba Baptista in the role of Ava Silva, a quadriplegic orphan who discovers she now has supernatural powers which force her to join an ancient order of warrior nuns. The series marks Baptista's English-language debut. The cast also features Toya Turner, Thekla Reuten, Lorena Andrea, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Sylvia De Fanti and Tristán Ulloa.

On September 28, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes.[7] Simon Barry was set to serve as showrunner for the series. Barry is also credited as an executive producer alongside Stephen Hegyes with Terri Hughes Burton serving as a co-executive producer for the series.[8] Production companies involved with the series are Barry's Reality Distortion Field and Fresco Film Services.[9][10] The series premiered on July 2, 2020.[11] On August 19, 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a second season.[2] On December 13, 2022, it has been announced that the series has been canceled after two seasons.[3]

Sometime after the series order announcement, it was confirmed that Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Tristan Ulloa, Thekla Reuten, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Lorena Andrea, and Emilio Sakraya would star in the series.[8] On April 1, 2019, it was announced that Sylvia De Fanti had joined the cast as a series regular.[12] On October 18, 2021, Meena Rayann, Jack Mullarkey and Richard Clothier joined the cast as recurring roles for the second season.[13]

Filming for the first season took place on location of Andalusia (Spain), in the town of Antequera (where the headquarters of the Order of the Cruciform Sword is located) Marbella, Ronda, Málaga, and Sevilla, from March 11, 2019 to July 5, 2019. The El Tajo Gorge was featured in one of the scenes.[14][15][16] Pre-production for the second season began in late May 2021 and filming began in late July 2021 in Madrid, Spain.[17][18][19] Production for the second season wrapped up on November 4 in Spain.[20]

On Rotten Tomatoes, season 1 has an approval rating of 68% based on 34 critic reviews, with an average rating of 6.5/10. The website's critics consensus reads, "Though Warrior Nun's heavy handed set-up weighs it down, committed performances and excellent fight choreography may be enough for those looking for more pulp with their pulpit."[24] On Rotten Tomatoes, season 2 has an approval rating of 100% based on reviews from 11 critics.[25] On Metacritic, the show has a weighted average score of 62 out of 100, based on reviews from 7 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[26]

On December 13, 2022, creator Simon Barry revealed on Twitter that Netflix would not be renewing Warrior Nun for a third season, thanking the fans for the love showed to the cast and production team.[32] Fans responded on social media, with many seeing the decision as part of a trend of discontinuing female-led shows with queer representation, known colloquially as the trope "Cancel Your Gays".[33] Within days a grass roots fan-led campaign began to advocate for the reversal of the cancellation and renewal of the show, or for Netflix to sell the rights of the show to another streaming platform. A fan created petition on Change.Org was set up in response to the cancellation by Netflix and as of January 15, 2023, has gained over hundred-thousand signatures.[4][34]

Production companies involved with the series were slated to consist of Fresco Film Services and Reality Distortion Field.

In the season finale, the mythology, and the world, of Netflix's Warrior Nun were torn apart. Adriel (William Miller) is not an angel that bestowed the power to the first halo bearer, he is actually a demon, and the first Warrior Nun stole his power. The source of The Halo's power is a lie, and so is the belief system and religious order built around it is based on it.

SIMON BARRY: One thing we did in season one was to introduce stakes that were on a level that was much more personal for Ava. 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. We don't want to play it safe because then the show won't ever feel like it's changing and evolving, it'll just be repeating itself, which we don't want to do. If we get a season two, we need to build on what we did in season one and not reproduce it.

When the series begins, Ava is very uninterested in being The Warrior Nun and wants to finally live her life. In the end, she's committed to her Sister Nuns and saving future Warrior Nuns. Where is Ava on her journey of accepting the role by the end of the season?

Her intentions going into the [season one] finale were genuinely to solve two problems. One was her own feelings of inadequacy in taking on this role as a leader and as the halo bearer, which she wasn't and still isn't really accepting. The other being making sure that no one else has to suffer the fate that she'd witnessed [past Warrior Nuns] suffer, like dying young or giving everything up for a potentially false narrative.

That is obviously fertile ground for season two, if we get one. When you have a character like Father Vincent believe in something so strongly, it makes you question the narrative that you've been told. If he believes in Adriel, then maybe there's something there that the others don't know yet that Vincent does. So, we're sort of counting on Vincent's belief in Adriel to keep things fluid and not necessarily black and white.

Well, it's a great question. I love the idea that the audience is going to see this character, who they despised for all of season one, in such a different way. Now that he's Pope, Duretti is in a position to actually help, and he may not even be aware of what's happened with Adriel. I liked that we could reverse the audience's opinion of Duretti without denying who he is. He is very single-minded, will always look after his own interests.

The larger world will have to now come into play in a way if we get to season two. The nature of Adriel's reveal and the scope of what happened after Duretti becomes Pope is something that obviously is a public event. The idea that this event and the Adriel's emergence goes unnoticed by the public simply doesn't make sense. We're going to have to see the impact of it on the world outside of the OCS, and the nuns themselves. Adriel's plans will have to come into focus, and that's obviously something bigger than what would involve just the church.

Ava and Beatrice (Kristina Tonteri-Young) have this wonderful relationship, one that social media is loving! What was it like developing that dynamic in the first season, and what does the future hold for them?

We established Ava's relationship with JC and her as someone keen to explore romance and sexuality out of the gate. The relationship with Ava and Beatrice was something we could slow down in terms of the story of the season, building a bond between them was more important. We felt that this was a long view relationship that had to be complex, interesting, and grounded in honesty. One that helped Ava express her situation, but also helped Beatrice do the same. We were more interested in teeing up possibilities than exploring an absoluteness.

The truth about the OCS is definitely the big red herring of season one. Thinking Duretti is trying to dismantle the OCS only to reveal that that's not his intention, and he is actually just protecting his reputation and himself politically. On top of that, the reveal of Adriel and that truth of how their own organization was created. In essence, the mistake that they've made in releasing Adriel. If you take that into consideration, then the OCS is even more imperiled.

Although Warrior Nun focuses primarily on the Order of the Cruciform Sword, the show features another subplot that could prove important in season 2. To recap, Warrior Nun Season 1 sees ARQ-Tech CEO Jillian Salvius (Thekla Reuten) constructing a portal to save her son. He suffers from a terminal illness, and Jillian wishes to send him to a better place.

Agnieszka Smoczynska is an up-and-coming Polish director who already has a lot of productions under her belt. Finally, Sarah Walker has directed on the fantasy series Wolfblood (2012-2017) and, more recently, on season 1 of A Discovery of Witches (2018-).

The next season will see Ava and the Order bringing the fight to Adriel. With the devil now revealing himself to the world, instead of standing alone, the forces of heaven may descend upon the Vatican and give assistance to the Order.

The second season of Netflix's hit fantasy drama Warrior Nun is available to stream now, with the new run finding Ava and the Sister-Warriors of the OCS trying to find a way to defeat the angel Adriel.

The show's base for season 2 was in Madrid, with the show shooting a large percentage of scenes there. In November 2021 when the second season wrapped, showrunner Simon Barry tweeted: "That is a wrap on #WarriorNun main unit s2!

Meanwhile, the entirety of season 1 was shot on in Andalusia in Spain, with several of the region's cities and landmarks making appearances throughout - including Marbella, Ronda, Antequera, Málaga, and Sevilla. 041b061a72
