‘Warrior Nun’ Fans Rent Billboard Outside Netflix Headquarters Asking For Third Season


Warrior Nun fans have rented a billboard outside of Netflix’s Los Angeles headquarters, asking for a third season.

Netflix canceled the hit series last month, shortly after the release of Season 2.

Fans of the show, which reportedly scored the highest audience ratings ever for a Netflix series, have been calling on the streamer to reverse their decision. Over 100,000 people have signed a petition and hashtags like #SaveWarriorNun and #NetflixCorrectYourMistake are regularly trending on Twitter.

Now the campaign has kicked things up a notch, with Warrior Nun fans renting a billboard on Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard (opposite Netflix’s LA offices) calling on the platform to save the show.

The billboard was crowdsourced, with fans raising over $34,000 to hopefully help save Warrior Nun.

Sharing the billboard, Warrior Nun showrunner Simon Barry wrote: “Incredible. I’m stunned and beyond impressed. You guys are next level!”

Based on the comic series by Ben Dunn, Warrior Nun follows Ava Silva (Alba Baptista) who wakes up in a morgue, with a divine artifact in her back, and discovers she is now part of an ancient order that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth.

Announcing the cancelation, Barry wrote: “I’ve just found out that Netflix will not be renewing Warrior Nun – my sincere appreciation to all the fans who worked so hard to bring awareness to this series, and for the love you showed me, the cast and the whole production team. It was a privilege to be a part of this.”

When asked if the show could be saved by another network, Barry replied: “We are looking into this. We will find out if there’s a path to moving the show somewhere else. Will keep everyone posted. #SaveWarriorNun.”

Posting about the cancellation on Twitter, Baptista wrote: “Working on Warrior Nun was a very special chapter of my life. Thank you to the cast and crew for giving everything they had. Thank you to the fans that loved and supported us.

“I see you and I love you. It was all for you. I’m forever grateful.”
