Fans of Warrior Nun were crushed when the series was axed in December after delivering its second season. And like its titular hero, they aren’t giving up the fight for their cause.

Following the news it wouldn’t be returning, fans created an online campaign to save the series with #SaveWarriorNun. The hashtag has racked up almost 10 million tweets and the accompanying Change.org petition has more than 112,000 signatures with a goal of 150,000.

Series creator Simon Barry has caught wind of the ongoing campaign to revive Warrior Nun and he recently retweeted a post by Twitter user @haya saying “for those of you who are losing hope, just think, [Simon] would not be telling us to fight and the #SaveWarriorNun hashtag to 10M tweets if there was no hope.”

“CONFIRMED BY SIMON YALL DONT LOSE HOPE #SaveWarriorNun #WarriorNun NETFLIX REVERSE YOUR DECISION”

The user retweeted his retweet (yes, it’s all very meta) with the caption in all caps, “confirmed by Simon Yall, don’t lose hope.”

Fans were shocked and infuriated when news broke that the show was ending, particularly considering its seeming success on the streamer (both seasons were in the top 10 globally watched list), as well as its 97% fresh audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

“I’ve just found out that @netflix will not be renewing #WarriorNun - my sincere appreciation to all the fans who worked so hard to bring awareness to this series, and for the love you showed me, the cast and the whole production team. It was a privilege to be a part of this. ❤️”

Barry himself shared his disappointment when the show was canceled, but expressed hope that the show would find a new home. To that end, Barry and company have reportedly been looking for different homes for the show. No doubt having a loyal and passionate fanbase helps to make Warrior Nun more desirable for any streaming service that might be considering reviving the queer fantasy series.

While we’ll have to wait and see if the campaign proves successful, we’re rooting for them and cheering them on.
