“Into the Badlands” is 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.
AMC announced today that Into the Badlands has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes six episodes into the martial arts drama's sophomore run, where it is currently averaging a healthy 3.6 million viewers per episode.
The cable network is upping the episode count once again for Season 3, ordering a supersized 16 episodes for when the show returns in 2018. That numbers is up from the six and 10 episodes ordered for Seasons 1 and 2.
