Netflix has cancelled yet another TV show and fans are yet again raging into their keyboards.
The streaming service has apparently dumped Warrior Nun after two seasons even though the series had very positive reviews.
Showrunner and creator Simon Barry posted about the move and thanked everyone who gave it a chance.
"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," he said.
"It was a privilege to be a part of this."
The synopsis for the programme says Warrior Nun is about a young woman called Ava Silva who wakes up in a morgue with inexplicable powers and gets caught up in a battle between good and evil.

It's based off the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala, originally created by Ben Dunn.
Ava Baptista played Ava Silva and she wrote on Twitter: "Working on Warrior Nun was a very special chapter of my life. Thank you to the cast and crew for giving everything they had. Thank you to the fans that loved and supported us.
"I see you and I love you. It was all for you."
Fans were devastated about the revelation and lamented the idea of another highly-rated series biting the dust.
One viewer said: "Warrior Nun has an amazing story, with really good character developments, incredible visuals and a beautiful love between two girls, I’m not forgiving Netflix never."
Another added: "Warrior Nun being canceled is so disappointing. I hate that it's not surprising at this point too. LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and even female-led shows are seemingly held to a higher (and apparently unattainable) standard."

I see you and I love you.
It was all for you.
I’m forever grateful.❤️
Other fans pointed out how the show has a very impressive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The audience score for the whole show is sitting at 97 per cent, while the critic score is at 84 per cent.
When you look at the second season, which premiered a few weeks ago, it's sitting at 100 per cent for the critic score and 99 per cent for the audience.
That is seriously impressive.
Variety says Warrior Nun sat in the global Top 10 list for several weeks after it was released.
It had 26.22 million hours viewed in the first week before peaking in week two with 27.74 million hours viewed.
