The latest installment of The Conjuring Universe is on its way to theaters, and horror fans can’t wait to discover what nightmare the demon Valak has in store for them next.
The Nun II, part of horror hero James Wan’s dark world, has been long awaited, and five years after the release of the first The Nun picture, people are eager to know where the devil will haunt next.
The first Nun film followed Sister Irene and Father Burke as they investigated a nun’s death at Saint Cartha’s monastery in Romania. Within the Abbey’s walls, things weren’t as they seemed, and Sister Irene faced up against the devil who had escaped exile by possessing innocent delivery man Maurice.
With the second picture taking up four years later, spectators will have to wait to witness what horrors the devil will cause in its new vehicle. Here’s all we know about The Nun 2 upcoming release date, cast, and more.

Who Is in the Cast of The Nun II?
Bonnie Aarons will return as Valak, the evil Nun that haunts the world of The Conjuring. Aarons initially appeared in The Conjuring 2 as the evil nun who begins haunting the Warrens. Aarons has played a number of horrific characters in David Lynch’s 1999 movie Mulholland Drive, including various demons, a vampire, and a filth-covered living nightmare. Aarons has stated that she enjoys her parts, which is evident in her devotion to her horrific characters.
Taissa Farmiga will reprise her role as Sister Irene in October 2022, it was confirmed. Sister Irene faced the strong demon Valek at Saint Cartha’s monastery in The Nun, banishing the evil spirit… or so she thought. Sister Irene will have to confront the devil once more, as Valak appears to have followed her and Maurice to France.
Taissa Farmiga is Vera Farmiga’s younger sister, who plays Lorraine Warren in the Conjuring series. Taissa is best known for her role as Max Cartwright in The Final Girls, but she has also appeared in 32 episodes of American Horror Story in a variety of roles.
Farmiga’s first acknowledged acting job was in the drama film Higher Ground in 2011, when she played the younger version of her sister’s character Corinne Walker. Twelve years later, the sisters are now the main characters in two linked movies from the same film franchise. Fans are wondering if the two sisters will appear together in Maurice’s eventual exorcism.
Jonas Bloquet has stated that he would reprise his role as French delivery man Maurice, popularly known as Frenchie. Bloquet’s character declares at the end of The Nun, after becoming possessed by the devil, that he is returning to his father’s tomato farm in France, where the following film takes place.
Bloquet has since been in a variety of French films and television series, as well as the 2022 Netflix horror series 1899, in which he and other tourists must solve a terrible enigma aboard a ship in the Atlantic Ocean.
Marcella, a new character rumored to be a schoolteacher at St. Mary’s School in France, will be played by Anna Popplewell. Popplewell is most known for playing Susan Pevensie, the older sister in the Chronicles of Narnia film series. Popplewell most recently starred in the 2022 time-bending thriller The Gallery and is presently working on the next epic romance picture Fairytale.
Sophie, the daughter of Popplewell’s schoolteacher role, will be played by young actress Katelyn Rose Downey. Downey will play Violet in the 2022 Hulu original film The Princess, making this her third credited acting job. In the upcoming crime series Clean Sweep, she will play Caitlin Mohan, the daughter of a detective, in May 2023.
Storm Reid is expected to appear as a fellow Nun-in-training who lends a touch of funk to the somber plot. Reid is most known for playing Meg in the 2018 Disney picture A Wrinkle in Time.
Reid was most recently seen in The Last of Us as Riley Abel, Ellie Williams’ best friend and love interest, but fans of the adolescent drama series Euphoria will recognize her as Gia Bennett, Rue’s sweet and compassionate younger sister.
