AMC is bringing back the futuristic martial arts drama Into The Badlands on 19 March. At the end of season one, Sunny was captured and sold into slavery, which is where things pick up. Needless to say, it’s only a matter of time before he fights his way to freedom.
“We are so excited about season two. We take the audience deeper into the Badlands and really open up the world. Our characters will meet new barons, new threats and new allies as their journey continues… including Nick Frost, who is absolutely brilliant. His mix of humor and humanity make the show soar as much as any martial arts move. And he kicks ass as well!”

Into the Badlands Season 2 will return to AMC in 2017. Nick Frost recently joined the regular cast. His character is described as “a man with questionable morals and who’s always looking for the quick score, he is an irreverent and unlikely new ally to Sunny.”
Check out the trailer to Into The Badlands, a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, “Badlands” tells the story of a great warrior and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.
