AMC released the first trailer for the upcoming third season of its hit martial arts series, “Into the Badlands,” to a packed house of fans during a panel at WonderCon Anaheim 2018. The panel featured series star and executive producer Daniel Wu (Tomb Raider) who returns as Sunny, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) who returns as Bajie, Lorraine Toussaint (“Orange is the New Black”) who joins the cast this season as Cressida, and showrunner, executive producer and writer Alfred Gough.
“Into the Badlands,” which closed its second season as a top-ten scripted cable series averaging 3 million viewers per episode, is a story of survival and dominance set in a future feudal society. Within the territory known as the Badlands, a variety of clans struggle for supremacy over one another. These clans have been formed by the destruction of familial bonds and skirmishes over power. The show’s interwoven themes of martial arts, love and redemption are highlighted by what the show is best known for: its stunning cinematography and striking fight sequences.
The ensemble cast is led by Wu, Frost, Aramis Knight (Enders Game) Emily Beecham (Daphne), Orla Brady (“Fringe”) and Ally Ioannides (“Parenthood”). They will be joined by new series regulars Toussaint, Sherman Augustus (“Westworld”), Babou Ceesay (“Guerilla”) and Ella-Rae Smith (Clique), as well as recurring guest stars Dean-Charles Chapman (“Game of Thrones”) and Lewis Tan (“Iron Fist”).
‘Into the Bandlands’ Season 3 premieres Sunday, April 22.
