Will Netflix or Amazon Prime Pick Up Into The Badlands Season 4?

Posted by Jessie Richardson on May 13, 2019

Into The Badlands is a martial arts TV series that ran on AMC for three seasons until being canned. The final episode aired on May 6 2019 and for now at least, that’s it. The news didn’t go down well with fans who all thought there was a lot more life in the series yet. So will Netflix pick up Into The Badlands as they have done with other canceled shows?

I think Into The Badlands stands a good chance of being picked up by Netflix.

AMC said that Into The Badlands didn’t achieve the audiences they wanted so called time on it at the end of season 3. The cast took it with good grace as you would expect with star Daniel Wu tweeting

‘“Thank you for your support. We always had you in mind while making this as we wanted to give you the best martial arts action show to ever appear on tv and I think we achieved that. But that wouldn’t have been possible without you! So thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”’

Into The Badlands TV show

Into The Badlands has a post-apocalyptic semi fantasy setting heavily influenced by ancient Chinese culture. Some technology has survived while some has not and guns are now considered beyond the pale so are no longer used. It’s back to swords, arrows and martial arts to keep order.

The Badlands is set between the Rocky Mountains and Mississippi River and a feudal system has developed similar to Medieval Europe. Barons control the land and the people and slave labor is the norm. Order is maintained by the Clippers, a sort of militia. Outside of this organized society are Nomads and other organizations trying to get by.

The show is a real mix of post apocalypse and ancient history. The idea that guns are no longer used is a good one and the cultural mix is also neatly done.

Into The Badlands stars Daniel Wu as Sunny, Aramis Knight as M.K., Ally Ioannides as Tilda, Madeleine Mantock as Veil and Marton Csokas as Quinn.

Into The Badlands season 1

Into The Badlands season 1 has 6 episodes and introduces us to the world, the characters and life in general. Sunny is a former Clipper who is involved in a recue of M.K. a mysterious character who may be able to help Sunny escape from the Badlands. Sunny begins training M.K. while fighting bad guys and trying to survive amongst other Clippers, the Barons and various villains.

The season is full of action and good storytelling. This isn’t wire-fu but seriously athletic martial arts with a great eye for choreography. It’s a refreshing change from the usual post-apocalyptic story.

Into The Badlands season 2

Season 2 is 10 episodes long and sees Sunny as a slave miner and M.K. training with some monks. Sunny enters the fighting pit to try to escape while being betrayed by someone who knows who he really is. The other characters, Tilda and The Widow have moved on but are still in the Badlands.

Sunny and Bajie work their way through a list of enemies while The Widow does what she can to secure her position and put down her enemies.

Into The Badlands season 3

Into The Badlands season 2 is also 10 episodes long and Sunny is back in the Badlands. Only The Widow and Chau remain of the original barons and its civil war. Sunny and Bajie again work their way through a complex storyline while fighting bad guys and trying to stay out of trouble and end up fighting blind cannibals, warriors and more while Sunny ends up in prison again.

All storylines come together in a fight to the finish. I can’t say much more without spoilers. It’s difficult enough writing a synopsis without them as it is!

Will Netflix take on Into The Badlands?

At the time of writing, Netflix have not mentioned wanting to continue Into The Badlands. I think chances are good that they will. The show isn’t your usual terrorist, zombie, law, police or crime procedural but something different. Sure, the plot took some serious twists and turns and sometimes ended up in unlikely places but overall, the action and the acting was good enough for it to gather a core following.

Some of which has spilled onto social media to demand Into The Badlands be continued. With such a fanbase and more international appeal than many US TV shows, I think it quite possible that Netflix will pick it up.

It is upsetting that they ended into the badlands after only 3 seasons just to leave it open the way they did for more. Sunny and the widow both getting their gifts back. The master saying worse danger is in the horizon. Come on Netflix pick up the show and keep it going!
Ed Winters says:
The show is boring trash and it is never coming back. Stop begging for more and find something better to watch…if your small brains can handle a show with a decent story. Pathetic.
Chewbakattack says:
I bet you watch Lindsey Lohan’s Beach Club and re-runs of Jerry Springer, because it looks like you’re begging for drama.

geoffrey hough says:
Into the Badlaands…..what a great series and what do we think about a fourth series? This has surely been a decade for the rise of fantasy genre, after all with reality of “Punch and Judy” politics in the UK and similar experiences for our American cousins there is nothing like a good fantasy tale to take us away from reality and I must single out praise for The Game of Thrones. The Badlands has remained popular with all three series leaving the fans desperate for the next episode. Well done to the production team but I am sad that you feel that your is done. So come on Netflix this is not going to be the worst financial decision you will make for 2020.
TheronWare says:
I have never seen martial arts performed at this level before in a tv series! I sincerely hope someone can pick up this series in the near future and don’t have it end so soon like my beloved Rome!
French says:

Jok3r says:
Into the badlands is a great and exciting tv show it sucks that they cancelled come on Netflix pick this show up we want to see more of this great and exciting season 4 of into the badlands
Justin says:
Cancelling this show was the worst decision ever. Also because there are worse shows with less viewers getting more seasons but Into The Badlands didn’t get a 4th season? Makes no sense. I stopped watching AMC because they cabcelled the best show on their network.

TWD got old after season 4. FTWD is meh. Hell On Wheels is okay. Other shows meh. My opinion, I to The Badlands was an amazing show above all others. Mix of modern with medieval type fighting with no guns? Yes please. Fighting scenes were a step of anything ive seen in years.

Shame on AMC for cancelling this show. I really hope netflix or some network picks up this show and makes it a hit like it always has been. The way season 3 ended shows that a lot is yet to come.

I fell in love with this show. You really didn’t know who to route for. Everyone was killing everyone and it was a bit chaotic at times. Sonny seemed to be the only one fighting for a real cause Baiji was awesome all through it all. Would love to see this show make a comeback. Loved all the action and the way the widow finally came out to be someone who really did care about her people. Thank you everyone on the cast of the Badlands for three fantastic seasons. Please someone pick the show up for more seasons.
