The party is just getting started in this first trailer for Into the Badlands season two

2 min read

Know what you get when you mix together genres like “Kung Fu action”, “post-apocalyptic drama”, “fantasy” and then sprinkle in a pinch of “steampunk” just for good measure? Well usually you get a crippling identity crisis at best and an unwatchable mess at worst, that’s what. Luckily, Into the Badlands is not your usual show.

After a first season comprised of six episodes of entertaining ass-kicking and world building, the fan-favourite show will be returning to AMC in a couple of months and I can’t wait. We’ve already seen our first batch of pictures for the upcoming season, but while a picture may be worth a thousand words, a trailer is worth… well however many frames there are in this new ___ long trailer. Multiply that by a thousand and that’s a lot of words! And most of them are “awesome”.

Check out the new trailer below, which doesn’t show off a whole lot of martial arts goodness, but also introduces us to Nick Frost’s new character, Bajie, who looks to be a comedic foil to Daniel Wu’s stoic Sunny.

Into the Badlands Season 2 finds Sunny (Daniel Wu) and M.K. (Aramis Knight) separated and scattered to the wind, each imprisoned in unlikely places.  While M.K. struggles to control his powers, Sunny is determined to fight his way back into the Badlands to find his family or die trying.  On their journey, Clipper and Colt are assisted by mysterious, new allies whose motivations may be anything but pure.  Meanwhile, The Widow (Emily Beecham) continues to consolidate power against the other Barons, while a dark and mysterious threat prepares to exact revenge on them all.  Alliances are struck, friendships betrayed, and by season’s end, Sunny and M.K.’s lives will be forever altered with devastating consequences.

Into the Badlands now expanded 10-episode season two premieres in the US on March 19.

A man of many passions – but very little sleep – I’ve been geeking out over movies, video games, comics, books, anime, TV series and lemon meringues as far back as I can remember. So show up for the geeky insight, stay for the delicious pastries.

  • Admiral Chief

    Such a silly notion putting those rings on a sword, how will you make a clean cut then?

    • Lu

      I fail to see their purpose at all, other than being flashy

      • It was actually a real thing they used to do in China. They served the dual purpose of being noisy and distracting, and also allowed more cheaply made swords to more easily block incoming strikes from proper made blades like katanas,

        • Lu

          I know they used to do it, wasn’t sure why though. Critical Education 🙂

        • And for warding of evil spirits and alerting people that you were armed. Still meant that they were slower than standard weapons.

  • That looks awesome… how do we watch it locally?

    • Dawid Eduard Roestorf

      I watched it on Netflix, it is brilliant

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    This show is so damn cool. I need more Widow in my life.

  • Francois Knoetze

    how did I not know about this?!

  • Craig “CrAiGiSh” Dodd

    Can’t wait for season 2.

    The fighting choreography in this series is on par with some of the best Kung Fu movies around.

    … I LOVE KUNG FU !!!!

  • ‘which doesn’t show off a whole lot of martial arts goodness’? Put the meth down boy! Also, this looks awesome!
