Leave it up to Netflix when it comes to delivering wonky, really out there, pieces of entertainment. A scroll through the app's landing page will show you the level of ridiculous content, which would not have worked on any other television network, thriving on the streaming platform. Now, Netflix is adding another questionably fun looking series to their library called Warrior Nun.

Warrior Nun cast is led by Portuguese actress Alba Baptista who plays Ava in the Netflix series. Ava was a 19-year-old orphan who arrives at the Church as a dead person, only to be resurrected by the Halo. She is chosen as one of the Warrior Nun, also being the holder of the Halo means she is the champion of god against forces of evil. After finding the secret society, Ava feels free from her abusive orphanage past, which leads her to make mistakes.
Ava is backed by her Sister Nuns Shotgun Mary, played by Toya Turner, Sister Lilith, played by Lorena Andrea, Young Sister Beatrice, played by Kristina Tonteri-Young, and Camila, played by Olivia Delcan. They are also supported by Father Vincent, played by Tristan Ulloa, and Mother Superion, played by Sylvia De Fanti.
Shotgun Mary does not care about the Church, she is devoted to the sisterhood, and that is where her loyalty ends. Sister Lilith is a legacy Sister Nun; her prominent family gives her an air of entitlement, which does not go down well with other sisters. Young Sister Beatrice is all about strategy and clear vision, who does not take nonsense from anyone. Camila is the heart of the group, she does not understand what she does, but sisterhood is all that matters to her.
Ava is the leader of the Sister Nuns, but Warrior Nuns are overseen by Father Vincent. He is a reformed man who left behind his past to take on the collar and become the spiritual leader of the nuns. Then, there is Mother Superion, she trains the Nuns, and even without much power, she is the one who runs the whole place, and everyone is afraid of her.
Thekla Reuten plays the villain, Jillian Salvius; she is the CEO of a tech company going against the Vatican by showing the other side. Emilio Sakraya also appears in the show as JC, a wild card, who has hopes of becoming someone great but hindered by his choices in life.
Warrior Nun Plot Details – Learn the Story Behind the Series
Warrior Nun follows a group of Nuns who are tasked with fighting the unholy creatures of Hell and preventing the rise of Hell and Heaven's fall. To this end, a 19-year-old recently deceased Ava is revived by the use of an ancient artifact known as the Halo. The Halo embeds itself in the back of Ava, and she becomes the instrument of Heaven in their battle against Hell and other people who seek to harm the order.
The rise of a tech company, trying to make Vatican and Heaven inconsequential, causes problems for the Sisters who find an increasing number of dead creatures wreaking havoc. The main story of the series is about the Sisters’ fight against evil and their journey to secure both Heaven and earth.
