The martial arts drama will return for Season 2.
March 8, 2016
AMC announced today that Into the Badlands has been renewed for a second season. The freshman martial arts drama is coming off a successful 6-episode debut season where it averaged 5.6 million total viewers when factoring in three days of delayed viewing. The series aired late last year following The Walking Dead.
The cable network is increasing the episode count for Season 2 of Into the Badlands, ordering 10 episodes for the show's return, which is not expected until 2017.

Loved the show. So glad it's coming back! I watched the first episode in between TWD and i was hooked.
Thanks for bringing it back!

I suppose it deserves a second season. It had its moments, especially with the best martial arts scenes on dramatic TV. But the plot dragged at times.

Just fyi... it's not always summer on the Walking Dead. They are in the south. Not every part of the country suffers from bone-chilling snow storms in the winter. Some areas of the US merely drop to 40-50Â° temperatures in the winter and never see snow. But... I can see if you're in the Northeast or midwest how you may have the impression it's always summer. You can move ya know :)

I think the only reasons it's renewed is because you had to watch the show to see Walking Dead previews and crap like that, so it made it look like it had a lot of viewers.

Been waiting for awhile. There was a lot of clamor on Twitter to have this come back. I felt like I got dropped in the middle of a field and left there. As for the "bad acting". Really? In a show like this.. I am sure its not a requirement. Example. Under The Dome... terrible acting .. huge following ...until the story line ran out of ideas.

I am very surprised this was renewed. I think the story is very interesting, but the acting was not up to snuff. Also when they say they had 5.6 million viewers I am not sure that they adequately measured that correctly since there was such a huge drop off they no longer had a lead in like "The Walking Dead" (aka the most overrated show that goes nowhere and is always summer). I doubt it will get a third season if they don't follow one of their other premiere shows.

I don't get how people are surprised at this. The ratings were excellent. It's the third highest rated first season show on cable. Of course, AMC was going to renew it. It doesn't matter if you personally didn't like it, or even if a lot of people didn't like it. A lot of people watched it. It'd be idiotic to cancel it. That'd be like to stop selling a product at a store that was making record sales. The only thing that's surprising is that it took them so long to announce the renewal.

I surprised at this too, but for the opposite reasons. I like the show, alot, but agree its a little rough on the acting and stunts. But to me it has the feel of someone trying - unlike other "better" shows where its clear theyre all just making a paycheck. I'll gladly watch a 10ep entertaining story over the drawn-out 22ep mess that Heroes and Lost became. Reminds me alot of the movie Bunraku...

Good. I like this show a lot more then Revolution which is frankly almost the same show. the fight scenes are much more elaborate and the acting is a lot better on Badlands. Looking forward to season 2 !

Watched one episode and gave up. David Carradine did a better job years ago.
