People Are Comparing Netflix's New Fantasy Series 'Warrior Nun' To Buffy

People Are Comparing Netflix's New Fantasy Series 'Warrior Nun' To Buffy

A new supernatural drama called Warrior Nun has landed on Netflix, and it's going to be a hit with fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

The 10-part series only landed on the streamer a week ago, yet fans of the genre are already praising it and comparing it to the hit nineties Sarah Michelle Gellar show.

Inspired by the Manga novels, Warrior Nun centres on Ava Silver (Alba Baptista), a 19-year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a "divine artefact" embedded in her back.

"[Ava] discovers she's 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," says Netflix.

As well as Portuguese newcomer Baptista, the series stars Tristán Ulloa (Father Vincent), Toya Turner (Shotgun Mary), Thekla Reuten (Jillian Salvius), Kristina Tonteri-Young (Sister Beatrice) and Lorena Andrea (Sister Lilith).
