- Netflix canceled its fantasy drama series “Warrior Nun” in December, and fans are not happy.
- They have taken to Twitter to slam Netflix’s decision with the hashtag #savewarriornun.
- This snowballed into “#NETFLIX CORRECT YOUR MISTAKE” trending on Twitter.
Angry fans of “Warrior Nun” — a popular Netflix show that was scrapped after two seasons — have taken to Twitter to express their ire, and now “#NETFLIX CORRECT YOUR MISTAKE” is trending on the social media platform.
“Warrior Nun,” a show about a young girl who wakes up in a morgue with superpowers and is tasked with fighting demons on earth, was canceled by Netflix in December, per Variety.
In response, angry fans called out Netflix for ending shows before they reach a coherent ending. In this case, Warrior Nun’s season two ended with a cliff-hanger, just a month before the show’s cancellation.
As of Wednesday evening Singapore time, “Netflix correct your mistakes” has garnered over 31,900 tweets. The hashtag #savewarriornun has been used over 5 million times since December 13.
And angry fans are not just tweeting their disappointment. Over 108,000 people have signed an online petition on Change.org to renew “Warrior Nun” for its third season.
The show’s creator, Simon Barry, tweeted on January 6: “Holy Halo. 5 MILLION #SaveWarriorNun tweets since Dec 13. I am in awe of this fandom. Thank you!!”
Henry T. Casey, a senior editor at Tom’s Guide, an online publication that reviews tech products, tweeted: “Honestly, respect to the Warrior Nun fans. ‘NETFLIX CORRECT YOUR MISTAKE’ is a hell of a phrase to pick and get trending.”
Once the hashtag started trending, fans of other canceled shows started piggybacking on the phrase — fans of Netflix’s serial-killer show “Mindhunter,” animated sci-fi sitcom “Inside Job,” and teen drama “The Society” have since joined the Twitter conversation.
Protesters also dug up an old Netflix tweet from 2017, in which the streaming service appeared contrite about ending the sci-fi drama “Sense8” before it’s ending.
“We don’t like leaving a story unfinished. We learned a lot from Sense and we’re going to try not to do this in the future,” Netflix tweeted.
