I suppose it was no coincidence that the What’s On Netflix guys recently managed to take the time out to remind subscribers of the new fantasy action series, Warrior Nun. IGN has an official trailer running as of Wednesday signaling the first signs of life from the manga adaptation, as it’s been central to the endeavors of quite a few film industry people over the last seven years.
This incarnation, hailing from creator, showrunner and exec producer Simon Barry, joins him with execs Jet Wilkinson and Stephen Hegyes for the show’s official ten-episode launch on July 2. The show stars Alba Baptista, Tristán Ulloa, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Lorena Andrea, Toya Turner and Thekla Reuten among the roster.
Inspired by the Manga novels, Warrior Nun revolves around a 19 year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artifact embedded in her back. She discovers she is now part of an ancient order that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth, and powerful forces representing both heaven and hell want to find and control her.
What’s On Netflix provided a detailed outline of the episodes to come, along with the writers involved, including Barry himself, as well as David Hayter (Wolves) and Amy Berg (Caper) among others.
