Pop Culture Fix: Holy Gay Goddess, Warrior Nun is Saved!

Well let’s just hop right into today’s Pop Culture Fix because I almost cannot even believe it!

+ Warrior Nun showrunner Simon Barry announced this morning on Twitter that fans have actually done it! They have saved the show! There’s no details yet, only that Warrior Nun has risen from the ashes, which is honestly the most unreal-amazing thing I have ever seen fandom accomplish, and I have seen fandom get A LOT of stuff done in my 15 years writing professionally on this gay internet. Congratulations, y’all!

  1. I’M LITERALLY TEAR-Y RIGHT NOW! LIKE I ALMOST FELL DOWN! We’re all so used to having good things taken away from us that I just… I’m so happy for Warrior Nun fans!

  2. I just can’t let myself get excited about Warrior Nun until we get more details. TVLine says, “Sources confirm to TVLine that while no deals are in place discussions are indeed underway to revive the series via a standalone movie or a shortened final season in order to give fans closure — but not on Netflix. It remains unclear where the project would potentially land.” If this is true, Simon’s really playing with fire here by making it sound like it’s a done deal. I also wonder how the writers strike and potential actors strike are going to affect this. It’s not like Simon can write or film anything anytime soon.

    • That’s what I’m wondering as well. Honestly, there have been a ton of movie and tv announcements lately and I’m like “When is this even getting made?”. Because the writers strike doesn’t look like it’s getting resolved anytime soon and now the actors may go on strike as well.

  3. Has anyone here watched Glamorous yet!? I’m surprised there hasn’t been much about it on here yet… I loooved Britt and Venetia they’re adorable we love happy gay people!!!

  4. I know I should just be thankful – right, just shut up and take what queer I can – and it is fanastic that Warrior Nun has been saved. But Sweet Xena, I am still shedding tears for ALOTO.

  5. She is risen. Praise Reya.

    Aside from Warrior Nun and Wynonna Earp, how many shows (especially ones with queer lead/main characters) have been resurrected? I can’t think of any other.
