The Nun was released in 2018 as a prequel to The Conjuring 2 and follows Roman Catholic priest Father Burke (Demián Bichir) and nun in training Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) as they investigate an unholy incident in 1950s Romania, and find themselves in danger from the demonic entity Valak, who is manifesting as a nun.
American Horror Story star Farmiga recently spoke about a potential return to her role as Sister Irene, revealing that “there were talks of potentially trying to see what my availability was”.
“But I also haven’t seen a script. So I haven’t heard anything definitive or anyone say: ‘Hey, this is going’,” she said. “So I don’t know, but I would love to go back and visit Sister Irene. It’s been years.”
