While Into the Badlands lost a lot of ratings steam over its first season, the series was still a top three show for AMC. Can this TV show maintain or even build its audience in the second season? Will Into the Badlands be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
A martial arts drama, Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu, Marton Csokas, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Oliver Stark, Madeleine Mantock, Ally Ioannides, and Nick Frost. The AMC series takes place centuries into the future in a feudal society called the Badlands. Season two finds Sunny (Wu) and M.K. (Knight) separated and scattered to the wind, each imprisoned in unlikely places. While M.K. struggles to control his powers, Sunny resolves to fight his way back into the Badlands and find his family or die trying. Meanwhile, The Widow (Beecham) continues to consolidate power against the other Barons, while a dark threat prepares to exact revenge on them all.

What do you think? Do you like Into the Badlands TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
Please renew this show
Please do not ever cancel this show. It’s one of my favorites and I dont have that many. I love martial arts and this is like the only show on TV that has good scenes and the fights scenes are crazy. 10 thumbs up. Keep the show coming.
Bring this show back. Different than most house shows. Tired of watching the same shows
I’m amazed the ratings for the last episode were that low. I’m looking forward to season three. There should be lots of new faces.
renew something different
You’re joking, right? This is a fantastic show. The ratings are definitely good enough for renewal, which is why it was ALREADY RENEWED! There will be 16 episodes next season. AMC already renewed HUMANS which went from a 0.39 to a 0.14. Even they renew failing shows.
i personally love this show it’s amazing show
I’m very happy it was renewed. The season has been fantastic. Only 3 episodes left this season. Make sure you watch them.
Season 2 is slipping. Season 1 was amazing but 2 has veered off the tracks and continues to focus on characters that I either do not like or do not care about. Quinn was great in season 1 but is now terrible, the widow is trash, tilda is boring, veil is even more boring. Without the snippets from Sonny and MJ the show wouldn’t even be worth watching, and neither of those arcs seem to be progressing the plot. Unfortunately I think Season 2 is going to kill off a show that had amazing potential.
The show has already been renewed. There will be 16 episodes next season. I guess they aren’t killing off enough of the main characters for your taste. This is a very good show, and even without the ratings boost from The Walking Dead, it is blowing the doors off the ratings The Expanse got.
It has been renewed.
Definitely renew Into The Badlands. It’s one of my favorite shows. ITB is visually stunning and the fight scenes are amazing.
Most definitely needs a season 3. There’s so much more opportunity to build upon an already “amazing story,”… This can be epic, Hopefully they give it a chance to get its wings. It’s takes some series a bit of time to grab the attention of the masses, ITB has that potential. I sense this is only the beginning of a cult classic….
VERY GOOD START.!!
I love the perimere of season 2. It was everything that I have always wanted. I can not wait to see what season 2 await us. I can not wait to see Veil and Nick Frost kick butt.
