Being a fan of YA-style fantasy shows on Netflix is a dangerous prospect, since until you rhyme with “Branger Brings,” you’re likely to be on the cutting edge and likely to be canceled before you can complete your storyline. Warrior Nun fans hope their show avoids that fate, and they make a pretty good case for staying alive.
At this point, Warrior Nun season 2 has a perfect 100% from critics, though that’s only six, but what’s more impressive is a 99% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 4,500 reviews at the time of writing. It’s nothing short of a miracle that 4,500 people agree on anything on the internet, and as such it means that Warrior Nun has the most votes, totaling the highest ratings of any Netflix show I can find.
I previously wrote about Netflix’s ratings when it was Cyberpunk Edgerunners that racked up huge numbers. But if we take Warrior Nun Season 2 out of Season 1 (which has a 92% rating, giving the total a 96%), the list now looks like this:
- Warrior Nun Season 2 (100% critics, 99% audience)
- Cyberpunk Edgerunners (100% critics, 98% audience)
- Lennox Hill (100% critics, 98% audience)
- Julie and the Phantoms (93% critics, 98% audience)
- Crash Landing on You (no critics, 98% audience)
- Heartstopper (100% critics, 97% audience)
- Call My Agent (96% critics, 97% audience)
- Making a Murderer (80% critics, 97% audience)
- Arcane (100% critics, 96% audience)
- Teenage Bounty Hunters (94% critics, 96% audience)
- Mindhunter (97% critics, 95% audience)
- The Last Kingdom (91% critics, 95% audience)
Download warrior nun season 2 literal the best show on Netflix or savvy fans are just expressing their appreciation as they can? I mean it’s part of that, yeah, but season 2 should be really pretty good, and if I were Netflix, this isn’t a fanbase I’d be pushing off just because Warrior Nun doesn’t have X, Y, or Z stats fetches.
Warrior Nun surfed around the mid/low end of Netflix’s top 10 list when it arrived, and has since fallen completely off the list. It’s not exactly a great performance and other shows have been canceled because they performed much better. Netflix is known for canceling many shows after 1-2 seasons because they see further renewals as not contributing to subscriber acquisition, the most important thing they care about.
However, at least to one secure mate, Netflix seems to have been a little less homicidal lately. A show like Heartstopper had super-high critical and audience ratings, but it didn’t seem like it was getting a lot of viewers, but Netflix gave it the go-ahead for two more seasons. Now fans are hoping to see the light with Warrior Nun for Season 3 given the improvements shown between seasons and the fan base it has garnered. The smart thing to do here would be innovation, but it’s anyone’s guess what path Netflix will take.
