Spoiler-Free Review of “Warrior Nun” Season Two on Netflix: Our New Chosen One faces an apocalypse…

*This is a spoiler-free review for season two so feel free to read on!*

“In this life or the next…”

Warrior Nun season two premiered on Netflix on November 10th 2022 with all eight episodes available to stream now. The fantasy-action series stars Alba Baptista, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Toya Turner, and Lorena Andrea. Each episode runs for approximately 42-50 minutes.

Ava and Beatrice return to bring down a self-proclaimed prophet as they wind up caught in another battle between good and evil.

Here is the trailer:

Warrior Nun season two is jam-packed with action, making this a solid season to indulge in. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Our chosen one is a lot more sure of herself this time around…

Sure, the annoying voice-over narration is still there, but I think that season two did a much better job of fleshing out Ava’s character. There was a lot of indecision and some whiny complaints in the first season that rubbed me the wrong way. Season two gives Ava a much better journey and I liked her character a lot more because of it.

Better pacing for season two.

Even though I enjoyed season one, many parts dragged and the pacing needed some serious work. Well, season two improved on this drastically. It was fast-paced and filled with bloody action scenes that were truly fantastic. The character dynamics were better as well and the series put forth an interesting mix of religious and scientific components to give us an intriguing plot to invest our time in.

The Cons:

Starts out in a weird way…

After that cliffhanger at the end of season one, I was expecting things to start off with a bang, but instead we got a time jump two months into the future. I didn’t get the answers I wanted and things started off a little disjointed and confusing for me personally. I definitely recommend watching the recap before you start season two because I needed a refresher to keep up.

Even though I enjoyed season two more than the first one, things still played out in a predictable way (although we did get a few fun twists).

This show is enjoyable, but I want it to do even more to stand out from some of the other fantasy shows so that it gets the attention it deserves.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

This series made a lot of improvements and held my attention for the most part, but I still am looking for more of a unique spark to set it apart from other series with a similar premise. I think we can get there though!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Warrior Nun season two in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Blood Rose Island Ad

When sisters, Nina and Gemma are vacationing in Hawaii with their friends, they get invited to an exclusive party on a private island that seems too good to be true. There’s only one rulethey can’t miss their ferry at midnight or they’ll have to wait until morning to leave the island. Only they didn’t realize that breaking this rule meant they would be hunted down on the island one by one.

Who will make it off the island alive?

I hope you enjoy my new island thriller!

Spoiler-Free Review of “Warrior Nun” on Netflix: It’s not easy being a Chosen One

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

One girl destined to fight against the demons of the world. Sound familiar? The premise screams Buffy the Vampire Slayer with religious undertones, which instantly sparked my attention, but sometimes a comparison is not always a good thing.

Warrior Nun premiered on Netflix on July 2nd 2020. It features 10 episodes (approximately 45-48 minutes in length). It stars Alba Baptista, Toya Turner, Emilio Sakraya, and Thekla Reuten.

Based on the manga style comic book character, Warrior Nun Areala, the show focuses on Ava. After waking up in a morgue, she discovers that she is far from dead and now possesses supernatural abilities as the chosen Halo Bearer. She faces new threats and demons while also searching for her own identity along the way.

Right away, I was completely hooked by the premise. The trailer was actually quite good and I’m all for a show that features a strong female character taking on the apocalypse, but does Warrior Nun do enough to make it stand out from its predecessors? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Delightful performances.

Standout performances go to Alba Baptista as Ava and Toya Turner as Shotgun Mary. They are believable and they really helped me connect more with these particular characters. There is subtle humor and sarcasm going on mixed with some real life altering scenarios, which gave us a good balance throughout the show.

These nuns kick ass!

The fight scenes may seem slightly ridiculous. They are flashy and unrealistic, but they are also really entertaining and they kept the pace going. If you’re a Chosen One, I want to see some bad-ass fight scenes and Warrior Nun certainly delivered with that.

The Cons:

Awkward voiceover narration.

I get it. We are trying to connect with Ava and learn more about her past to truly appreciate and understand what she has to deal with now. However, the voiceover narrations were awkward and out of place. They actually made Ava seem more whiny than she actually is and I could have done without them.

Too many episodes.

There are ten episodes and I think this show really could have been done in eight. When you have that many episodes, it really slows things down. There was unneeded fluff that made me lose interest several times throughout the show, which is a shame. Sometimes less is more…

This show is NOT Buffy.

I’ve seen multitple comparisons going on between this show and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. While I can absolutely see the similarities and noticed some myself, this show is nothing like Buffy, which is in a category of its own. I think this actually hurt the show because it just falls flat in comparison. On its own, the show actually has a lot of redeeming qualities, but I’m not sure it will be able to break through these comparisons.

So am I in or out?

I’m in…about 75 percent. Overall, this show was pretty entertaining. I liked the premise. I liked the characters and I loved the kick-ass fighting scenes. Once I got over the disappointment that this show would not be in the same category as Buffy, I started to enjoy it more…especially once I got to episode 4.

That being said, there is a lot slowing down the pace of this series and the exceptional premise falls flat in several areas, but there is still enough substance and heart in this show. If you are looking for a supernatural type of binge-watch, I would recommend watching The Order before Warrior Nun, but there is certainly enough to enjoy throughout your watch.
