'Into the Badlands' is back with a super sized second season (10 episodes, up from the first season's 6), starting on Sunday, March 19 at 10/9c on AMC in the US and Tuesday, March 21 on Amazon Prime Video in the UK. The first season was a bit wonky during the talky bits, but damn if the fight scenes weren't spectacular. Here's to another season of of kung fu goodness!

Season 2 of 'Into the Badlands' finds Sunny and M.K. 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 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.

oh shit. Didn't think there'd be a season 2. That must be why Netflix just put up the 1st season. I dropped off at one point, but I think the last episode didn't even have any fights in and that's the reason we watch this.

Not that it really matters in this type of show, but are there any changes/new writers or major staff? Can probably enjoy it regardless if they up the ante but it was definitely a week point.

So fucking hyped for this. Adored the first season and I still recommend it to everyone I can. Sucks that Iron Fist apparently turned out to be garbage but at least we'll still have this for batshit crazy action.

Hopefully MK dies on the way back to his home planet. I didn't find most of the story or characters particularly interesting but MK was the only aspect of the show I hated.

Besides MK, I thought the biggest problem with the first season was how centered it was on Quinn and his Barony. Every time we got a glimpse of something/somewhere else it was infinitely more interesting but we always kept cutting back to Quinn and his rather boring family.

If they can improve on the non-asskicking aspects of the show this could be something truly special.

Nobody is here for the non-ass-kicking aspects. Come on.
That is exactly why I said what I said. The plotting, narrative choices, and whatnot could make the show way more than a chore than it should have been. We are not talking about a show with wall to wall action here so having the majority of your show as fairly uninteresting just so you can get to a handful of minutes with awesome action is not good thing.

I'll say this: Quinn's seemingly demise (I still have hope!) makes me worried cause that means his piece of shit son will be taking a bigger role and he was easily the worst part of the show. People rag on M.K but Ryder sucked way more. So the show has a lot of work to do with that. On the flipside, Quinn's departure means more time for Quaritch high jinks with Widow, which can only be a positive.

I'm also tentative about Lydia's plotline. I'm in total love with the actress so the more screentime she gets the better (doubly so if she takes it away from her son), but the show's attempt to make her Cersei light failed imo. I hope her foray into the mysticism of this world with her cult leader father at least gives us opportunities for more world building and that they improve on her character now that her situation has drastically changed.

Don't remember shit about the status quo of the setting after the season finale and don't care. Just give me more Sunny and Widow spilling more blood, but also put me in the "curious about what is going to happen to Veil" camp.

This! MK may get no sympathy for me but he is not a complete piece of shit that doesn't deserve a single thing he's gotten like Quinn, holy shit.

I seriously hope they improve everything besides the fighting. I loved fights in Season 1 but it was a drag to get through even if it was only 6 episodes.

Just started season 1. 2 episodes in and really liking it so far. I think the only part of the show I don't like so far is the younger boy with whatever super powers...not sure if it's the character or the actor, but he doesn't quite fit in. Sticks out like a slightly sore thumb in all of his scenes.

Yeah he's not so great. The girl who plays Tilda is better.

Still the best fight scenes to ever grace cable. Season 1 despite being short had a ton of flaws.


The super cut available on YouTube is the best way to catch up on this show.

I love how this show embraces the craziness of martial arts, slow mo, and stunts.

This show is what I wanted from iron fist

I liked almost all of them. Even the last one right up to the
stacking like it says in the title

Tagged for the guy still watching.

In for more martial arts goodness. First season wasn't perfect, but it had some of the best fight scenes on television. Didn't know Nick Frost joined the cast, which makes me even more hype.

So I binged Into The Badlands after coming off Iron Fist and after being initially sceptical I'm glad to say that I did. A pulpy Louisiana infused Wu Xia that knows exactly what it is. Characters are well realised and the first season lays some solid foundation for S2.

I read an interview with Wu that admitted the fighting and drama was a little bit disconnected and they hope to intertwine the two much further in the second season in order to rectify that which is reassuring.

Although Nick First joining the cast has me most excited.
