‘Into the Badlands’ To End With Season 3
We shall go no further ‘Into the Badlands‘, as AMC announces the upcoming second half of Season 3 will conclude the post-apocalyptic martial arts drama.
The show is set on an Earth, centuries in the future, where a feudal society has emerged in the wake of civilization’s destruction. The Badlands are ruled by 7 rival Barons, each presiding with an iron fist, back up by armies and assassins called ‘Clippers’. Sunny (Daniel Wu) is a ‘Clipper’ for Baron Quinn (Marton Csokas), who has been unchallenged as for years… However, a new Baron ‘The Widow’ (Emily Beecham) is looking to change that… After Sunny comes to the rescue of a young boy called M.K. (Aramis Knight) after a near-fatal ambush, he begins to learn the teenager has a hefty bounty on his head and holds a dark secret. Together the duo head out on an odyssey which could change life in The Badlands forever.
As we enter the final chapter of ‘Into the Badlands’, an imprisoned Bajie (Nick Frost) warns Sunny that Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay) can’t be trusted. But with his son’s life on the line, Sunny struggles with his decision to help Pilgrim unlock the Meridian Chamber. Meanwhile, M.K. (Aramis Knight), still reeling from the revelation that Sunny killed his mother, is hell-bent on revenge. Kidnapped by The Master, the Widow is forced to confront her past. Moon (Sherman Augustus) meanwhile races to save Lydia from impending death after she risked her life for his on the battlefield. As the last episodes unfold long-buried secrets will be revealed, new alliances will be forged, and the saga will climax in an epic battle to end all battles.
