AMC’s hit post-apocalyptic and visually stunning martial arts series, Into the Badlands, returns for a third season on Sunday, April 22 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. Into the Badlands, which closed its second season as a top-ten scripted cable series, is a story of survival and dominance set in a future feudal society. Within the territory known as the Badlands, a variety of clans struggle for supremacy over one another; these clans have been formed by the destruction of familial bonds and skirmishes over power. The show’s interwoven themes of martial arts, love and redemption are highlighted by what the show is best known for: its stunning cinematography and striking fight sequences.
The ensemble cast is led by Daniel Wu (Tomb Raider), Aramis Knight (Enders Game) Emily Beecham (Daphne), Orla Brady (Fringe), Ally Ioannides (Parenthood) and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead). They will be joined by new series regulars Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black), Sherman Augustus (Westworld), Babou Ceesay (Guerilla)and Ella-Rae Smith (Clique), as well as recurring guest stars Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones) and Lewis Tan (Iron Fist).
Season 3 of Into the Badlands finds Sunny living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil’s death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie and journey back into the Badlands, where the Widow and Baron Chau are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda or Waldo, the Widow must find new allies in Lydia and in Nathaniel Moon — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season 2. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim 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.
