If you’re a fan of the Conjuring Universe, you probably remember the terrifying face of Valak, the demonic nun who haunted Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring 2 and Sister Irene in The Nun. Well, get ready to scream again, because Valak is coming back for more in The Nun 2, the sequel to the 2018 hit film that became the highest-grossing installment of the franchise.

The Nun 2 is set to be released on September 8, 2023, just in time for the Halloween season. The film is directed by Michael Chaves, who also helmed The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and written by Akela Cooper, Ian Goldberg, and Richard Naing from a story by Cooper. The film stars Storm Reid as the new lead character, Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, Anna Popplewell as Kate, Katelyn Rose Downey as Sophie, Bonnie Aarons as Valak, and Jonas Bloquet as Frenchie.

The plot of The Nun 2 is still shrouded in mystery, but according to JoBlo, it will be a direct sequel to the first film, taking place in France four years later. By setting it in 1956, that means that the sequel will be the second chronologically in the Conjuring Universe timeline, after The Nun and before Annabelle: Creation. We don’t know much about Storm Reid’s character yet, but we can assume that she will somehow cross paths with Valak and Sister Irene, who survived the events of the first film.

We are super excited for The Nun 2 for many reasons. First of all, we love the gothic atmosphere and the creepy imagery of the first film, which was inspired by classic horror movies like The Exorcist and The Omen. We hope that the sequel will maintain that style and deliver some more spine-chilling scares. Second of all, we are curious to see how Valak’s story will continue and how it will tie back to Lorraine’s story in The Conjuring films. James Wan, who co-produced both films, said that he has a “really fun” storyline planned for the sequel and that he knows how to make it all come full circle.

Third of all, we are thrilled to see Taissa Farmiga reprise her role as Sister Irene, who was one of our favorite characters in the first film. She was brave, smart, and compassionate, and she had a special connection to Valak that made her both vulnerable and powerful. We wonder what happened to her after she left Romania and how she will face Valak again. We also hope that she will reunite with Frenchie, who was revealed to be possessed by Valak at the end of the first film.

Lastly, we are eager to see Storm Reid join the cast as the new lead. She is a talented young actress who has impressed us with her performances in films like A Wrinkle in Time and The Invisible Man. We are sure that she will bring a lot of charisma and emotion to her role and that she will have great chemistry with Taissa Farmiga and Anna Popplewell.

The Nun 2 is one of our most anticipated horror movies of 2023. We can’t wait to see what Michael Chaves and his team have cooked up for us and how they will expand the mythology of Valak and the Conjuring Universe. We are ready to be scared out of our wits by the return of the nun.
