Six weeks after the launch of Warrior Nun, Netflix has decided to approve a second season of this adaptation of Ben Dunn‘s Warrior Nun Areala comics. Created by Simon Barry (Continuum), the series follows Ava Silva (Alba Baptista), a 19-year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a divine artifact embedded in her back. She then discovers that she has been given extraordinary powers and that she is now part of an ancient order dedicated to fight demons on Earth.
Season 2 should include the return of Alba Baptista, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Lorena Andrea, Toya Turner and Olivia Delcán.
Biohackers, another new Netflix release, has also been officially renewed for a second season. Released on August 20th, the German series has received very positive reactions on the streaming platform and is now being offered additional episodes.
Created by Christian Ditter (Love, Rosie), the series revolves around Mia (Luna Wedler), a medical student who is investigating the death of her brother and who will find herself immersed in the world of biohacking. The use of this technology will lead to a revolutionary discovery, but when it falls into the wrong hands, Mia will have to choose sides.
Altered Carbon cancelled at the end of its second season
Takeshi Kovacs will not be getting further funding from Netflix. The streaming giant has decided to put an end to the adventures of this elite warrior whose spirit can be transferred to a new body for the purpose of carrying out a variety of missions.
Released in 2018, Altered Carbon was acclaimed by both the critics and the public. The second season available since February 27, 2020, has had trouble convincing the public. According to Deadline, the decision to cancel the series would have been taken back in April and was not related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its cast included Joel Kinnaman, Anthony Mackie, Chris Conner, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee, Dichen Lachman and Martha Higareda.
