Great news, horror fans: Valak is back. That’s right, the demonic nun – who first unleashed terror upon audiences in 2016’s The Conjuring 2 and later starred in her own feature film titled The Nun in 2018 (a testament to her popularity among Conjuring fans) – is set to return to the big screen very soon. Set four years after the events of The Nun and serving as a direct sequel, The Nun II once again follows Sister Irene as she faces her evil tormentor, Valak.

The movie begins in 1950s France, with the grisly murder of a local priest catching the attention of Sister Irene. As she begins to investigate, Sister Irene soon comes to a bone-chilling yet familiar realization: the murder was committed by something inhuman, something that is now spreading its evil across a boarding school filled with petrified children. Sister Irene must again rely on her courage and bravery to save those Valak is determined to bring to a violent end.
Reprising their roles are Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Sister Irene, Bonnie Aarons (Mrs. Davis) as Valak/The Nun, and Jonas Bloquet (Marie Antoinette) as Frenchie. Joining them is Anna Popplewell (The Chronicles of Narnia) as Marcella and Storm Reid (Euphoria) as Sister Debra. Other cast members include Katelyn Rose Downey (Clean Sweep), Maxime Elias-Menet (L’amour (presque) parfait), Leontine d’Oncieu (Balthazar), and Anouk Darwin Homewood in her feature film debut.

When Is ‘The Nun II’ Coming to Streaming and VOD?
Regarding when and where The Nun II will be available to stream, there’s no news at present.
However, the movie’s distribution company, Warner Bros. Pictures, leads us to speculate The Nun II will likely be hosted on Max when the time comes. 2018’s The Nun is currently available to stream on Max with plans starting at $9.99 per month.
Additionally, some Warner Bros. movies are currently available to stream via Hulu, including The Conjuring Universe’s Annabelle and James Wan‘s Malignant. Plans start at $7.99 per month.
When Will ‘The Nun II’ Be Available on Blu-ray and DVD?
As of right now, we don’t know. While the film will eventually land on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD, Warner Bros has not yet revealed a specific date as to when that would be. The first Nun film also premiered in theaters in early September and was released on Blu-ray and DVD in December. Our best guess is that the sequel will follow a similar path and will be available around the holiday season.
Watch ‘The Nun II’ Trailer
Warner Bros. Pictures released a trailer for The Nun II on their official YouTube channel on July 6, 2023. The trailer begins with Frenchie – now working at the cursed boarding school – suffering an unexplained collapse in the school’s courtyard. Without giving too much away about The Nun’s ending, it seems Frenchie is finally suffering the effects of what happened to him during the 2018 movie’s hair-raising conclusion. This is witnessed by a student, Sophie, who begins to suspect that something evil has made its presence known on the grounds. Soon, Sister Irene is called to the school where she is seen interviewing Sophie. The girl tells Irene “something” is here, something “that’s not meant to be”. Throughout the trailer, we see Valak’s apparition appearing with increasing frequency, terrifying a group of girls roaming the halls at night. Additionally, the trailer hints that we will see more of Valak’s long-awaited backstory: a priest reveals that the demon Valak was once an angel, rejected by god and stripped of power. With Sister Irene now aware of what Valak wants, will she be able to banish her tormentor back to hell once more?
What Is the Background of ‘The Nun II’?
The Nun II serves as a direct sequel to 2018’s The Nun, both of which are installments in The Conjuring Universe. The two Nun movies center on the character of Valak, a demonic nun first seen terrorizing paranormal experts Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) in 2016’s The Conjuring 2.
Despite what has been widely reported, we can confirm that The Nun II marks the eighth – not the ninth – installment of The Conjuring Universe, as we recently learned that The Curse of La Llorona is not part of the franchise.
