Into the Badlands is only a few episodes into its second season, and is already delivering all the excitement and martial arts action fans could hope for. The show was created by Al Gough and Miles Millar, and has received critical praise as well as a vast legion of loyal fans.

The show centers around a new world after a cataclysmic event, and combines political intrigue akin to Game of Thrones, with the action of a martial arts epic. The show premiered its first season in November 2017, and quickly joined the ranks of fellow shows The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul, as the number-four scripted hourlong drama on cable.

Into The Badlands is set to continue its epic story, and will return for a third season with more episodes than ever.
