AMC is heading back Into the Badlands — and this time, the journey will last four episodes longer.
The network announced Tuesday it has renewed the bloody martial arts drama for a 10-episode second season after its six-episode first season drew solid ratings, including an average 5.6 million viewers per episode, the third-highest-rated first season in U.S. cable history. Starring Daniel Wu, Aramis Knight, and Marton Csokas, the series tells the story of a feudal, post-apocalyptic world where barons rule and guns are outlawed, leading to intensely choreographed fight sequences directed by Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Fung.
The series was created by Al Gough and Miles Millar, who serve as executive producers alongside Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg. The second season of Into the Badlands will debut in 2017.
