Inspired by the manga novels, Warrior Nun hails from creator/executive producer Simon Barry (Ghost Wars, Continuum), who also serves as showrunner. It revolves around a 19-year-old woman (Alba Baptista) who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artifact embedded in her back. She discovers she now is 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.
