Dropped in July on Netflix.  My wife and I streamed it in under two days.  Based on a comic series I've never heard of, I highly recommend it.  Really great world building with a cast that is up to the task.  Alba Baptista (in the lead role) is a discovery.  She's definitely influenced by Sarah Michelle Gellar but with her own unique spin on the fish out of water, destined to be a hero character.  The locations, filmed entirely in Spain, are gorgeous and the soundtrack is fantastic.  

Watch it.  You'll thank me later.

I never read Warrior Nun Areala, but I would always see it on the rack or in Previews. The covers were very 90s, with the Warrior Nuns in stripperiffic, skin-revealing, sexy nun outfits that made no sense for a Catholic order. The Netflix series is a very loose adaptation that follows a new character created for the show and avoids all that.

Pretty good show. Watched the first season a couple of weeks ago. 

Give a thumbs up also.

I watched (and enjoyed) the first season. I don't find the protagonist very interesting or likeable, but other characters make up for that. My favorite is Sister Mary, followed by Sister Beatrice and Father Vincent.

Interesting, Wallace.  I absolutely loved the lead.  I think she's someone we'll be seeing a lot more of in the coming years.  That said, I thought the entire cast was up to the challenge.  Well rounded, interesting, with so many questions about how they came to be that are (as yet) unanswered.

Matt, just to clarify... I don't care for the lead character. The actress portraying her is probably doing a good job of giving viewers what the directors/writers want.

Im enjoying this as well.  To think I was considering dropping Netflix when Disney came around. What a mistake that would have been!
