Update: The post on Wu’s Facebook has since been deleted.
For those who have enjoyed AMC’s “Into the Badlands,” so far, we come bearing great news: The series is seemingly coming back to AMC for a second season following four episodes airing so far this fall.
This news was confirmed in a post on Daniel Wu’s Facebook page, and it included some other ways to help increase the show’s popularity and positive image, including giving it the highest overall grade on IMDb possible. We feel like especially in this case people need to be involved given the uphill battle the show has currently with “The Walking Dead” fans still not thrilled about it replacing “Talking Dead” for a brief period of time on the schedule.
Unfortunately, this is all of the information that is out there at the moment, so we’ll have to wait for an official announcement to get some more details. We’re ultimately not surprised, even though we expected a renewal to come after we learned the ratings for the show without the aforementioned great lead-in. The biggest thing that it has going for it other than the numbers is that it is really working on establishing a great place for martial arts on scripted TV; it is for the most part a subculture only in feature films, and there have not been too many people willing to try this in such a format here.
The final two episodes of “Into the Badlands” will be airing on the 13th and the 20th of this month. We’ll have some more information about them and the future of the show in due time, so be sure to keep checking back for more!
