One fan, Sarah Manning, even started an online petition to renew Warrior Nun for season three which surpassed 30,000 signatures.

"Warrior Nun is truly a rare show. It flawlessly blends an interesting plot, punchy action sequences, detailed world-building, complex characters, commentary on the blurred line between science and religion together to create an incredible fantasy show," Manning wrote.

Manning added that the show represented sapphic relationships as the main character has a relationship with another woman.
