Into the Badlands Season 3 is readying an impactful return on AMC.
The series has complemented its stunning fight sequences with an impressive array of costumes and unique looks over the course of its two previous seasons. Now, it appears to be upping the ante in terms of aesthetics. Of course, you won’t need to take our word for it, take a look for yourself in the gallery!
The upcoming season will see sword-swinging primary characters, Sunny (Daniel Wu) and the Widow (Emily Beecham), in difficult new positions, with the former finding himself a single father to baby Henry, trying to survive in a desolate apocalyptic world, and the latter as a weakened baroness who’s in desperate need of allies. However, the playing field of the series is about to change with the introduction of a group of nomads and its enigmatic leader, Pilgrim (Babou Cessay).
Into the Badlands Season 3 premieres Sunday, April 22 at 10/9c on AMC.
Here’s AMC’s official synopsis:
Into the Badlands Season 3 finds Sunny (Daniel Wu of Tomb Raider) living off the grid, doing his best to provide for his infant son, Henry, in the wake of Veil’s death. It is only when Henry contracts a mysterious illness that Sunny must join forces with Bajie (Nick Frost of Shaun of the Dead) and journey back into the Badlands, where The Widow (Emily Beecham of Daphne) and Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura of Wonder Woman) are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilized the entire region. No longer supported by Tilda (Ally Ioannides of Parenthood) or Waldo (Stephen Lang of Avatar), The Widow must find new allies in Lydia (Orla Brady of Fringe) and in Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus of Westworld) — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season two. But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay of Guerilla) arrives in the Badlands on a mission to restore Azra and usher in a new era of “peace,” old enemies must band together to defend the Badlands.
