Warrior Nun revolves around the story of "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. She discovers she is now part of an ancient order named The Order of the Cruciform Sword that has been tasked with fighting demons on Earth, and powerful forces representing both heaven and hell want to find and control her."

- On September 28, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. Simon Barry was set to serve as showrunner for the series. Barry is also credited as an executive producer alongside Stephen Hegyes with Terri Hughes Burton serving as an co-executive producer for the series. Production companies involved with the series were slated to consist of Fresco Film Services and Reality Distortion Field.
- Although the original comic on which the series is based was set in New York, the Warrior Nun television series is set in Spain. This decision was made by showrunner Simon Barry, who desired to feature the European setting because of its rich religious architecture and history. It was felt that the series needed a "sense of Christian history because we were tying in the origins of the halo to the Crusades."
The series' first season holds a 74% fresh rating on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. The site's Critic's Consensus for the series states that "Though Warrior Nun's heavy handed set-up weighs it down, committed performances and excellent fight choreography may be enough for those looking for more pulp with their pulpit."
- The title of each episode of the first season is a passage from the Bible that references the general theme of the episode.
