Netflix is developing a live-action series based on Ben Dunn's creator-owned series Warrior Nun Areala. The show, with a shortened title of Warrior Nun, is scheduled to have a 10-episode first season from writer/showrunner/executive producer Simon Barry (Ghost Wars, Continuum).
"Inspired by the Manga novels, Warrior Nun revolves around a 19 year-old woman who wakes up in a morgue with a new lease on life and a divine artifact embedded in her back," reads Netflix's description of the series. "She discovers she is 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."
Warrior Nun Areala debuted in 1994 from Dunn's long-time publishing partner Antarctic Press.
