This series is based on a comic book, “Warrior Nun Areala.” The heroine in that is Sister Shannon. In the TV series, they kill off Sister Shannon, and she’s replaced by a young quadraplegic girl. The nuns battle some demons, but they manage to put Sister Shannon’s halo (which is some sort of powerful device in her back that gives her superpowers) into the body of Ava Silva (Alba Baptista), who died recently. The halo revives her, and she has to not only fight off the demons but then rejoice in the fact that she’s alive and has full control of her body.
After that, Ava finds some other young people to hang out with, not knowing that this ancient order of nuns (and a priest) is looking for her. There’s a lot of action and special effects. There are many characters, but not so many that you have a hard time figuring out who’s who. It’s a good, fun superhero show. I enjoyed it and will probably watch the rest.
NEW SERIES WARRIOR NUN
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.
