We are sad to say that on February 9, 2019, AMC canceled Into the Badlands after three seasons.
Into the Badlands’s final eight episodes of season 3 will debut on Sunday, March 24, 2019. The series will then move to its regular time slot on Mondays at 10:00 PM, starting on Monday, March 25, 2019.
Here’s what the critics had to say about Into the Badlands:
Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, “AMC finds a bloody, fun and entertaining non-zombie counterpart to The Walking Dead and turns Sundays into an escapist red zone.”
Maureen Ryan of Variety wrote, “The action scenes scattered throughout Into the Badlands are not just stirringly presented, they represent a test passed with flying, and bloody, colors. This efficient AMC series is an homage to classic Samurai films and kinetic action fare churned out by Hong Kong maestros of furious fists, and if the TV drama had failed to meet the standards set by the sturdiest examples of those genres, it would have seemed superfluous at best. Fortunately, star Daniel Wu is more than up to the task of occupying the center of this streamlined story of vengeance, tyranny and roundhouse kicks.”
Acclaimed martial arts drama Into the Badlands season 3 returned to AMC on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at 10/9c.
Into the Badlands Season 3 finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil’s (Madeleine Mantock) death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Nick Frost) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Emily Beecham) and Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ally Ioannides) or Waldo (Stephen Lang), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Orla Brady) and in Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus) — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season 2. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of “peace,” old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.
The series also stars Aramis Knight as M.K., Lorraine Toussaint as Cressida, Ella-Rae Smith as Nix, Lewis Tan as Gaius and Dean-Charles Chapman as Castor.
From AMC Studios, Into the Badlands was created by executive producers, showrunners and writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and is executive-produced by Oscar-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg, along with David Dobkin, Stephen Fung, Michael Taylor and Daniel Wu.
