The fictional series “Warrior Nun”, starring Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, is to become a trilogy of films, executive producer Dean English has revealed.

In a message posted on YouTube on Tuesday and later reported by Variety magazine, Dean English explains that three feature-length films are planned to expand the universe of the “Warrior Nun” series, which was produced by the Netflix platform.

“Warrior Nun”, which premiered on Netflix in 2020 and had a second season in 2022, is inspired by the comic strip “Warrior Nun Areala” by Ben Dunn, originally published in 1994.

The story has as its protagonist a young woman, played by Alba Baptista, who “wakes up in the morgue invested with extraordinary powers and finds herself involved in a battle between good and evil”, according to the synopsis.

At the end of 2022, Netflix didn’t renew the series for a third season, which led to a wave of protest from hundreds of fans on the Internet and outside the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles, USA, and a request for the project to continue.

Last June, on the social network Twitter, Canadian creator and producer Simon Barry announced that “Warrior Nun” would be returning, without giving any further details.

In the message released on Tuesday, the executive producer only revealed that there will be three films, which will continue the “Warrior Nun” universe, but without further production details, because there are still two strikes going on in Hollywood, by screenwriters and actors.

It is also unknown whether Portuguese actress Alba Baptista will continue on the project.

In an interview with the Lusa news agency in June 2020, Alba Baptista said that her entry into the series came about by a stroke of luck, after she took part in and won a prize at the 2018 Subtitle European Film Festival in Ireland.

It was there that she made contact with casting directors and got a window of opportunity to make herself known. She was chosen to star in a series that, according to her, combines fantasy, action, science fiction, humor and can serve both a young and more adult audience.

In addition to Alba Baptista, Portuguese actor Joaquim de Almeida is also part of the cast.
