    Great news!! I really liked the first season.

  2. wrstlgirl says:

    Cool, it’s a good show. Just don’t make us watch this before Talking Dead again.

    • Mike M says:

      WD / TD will run out together, then it will be replaced by Fear TWD / Fearfully Talking About This Dead Show Walking. Then we will get Into The Badlands / Into Talking Badly About Land (& Swords). Hopefully by around 2020 Cable standards will get where AMC are happy to make a show simply called Well Cr*p, so we can just get on down to the really cool title we all want to see – Talking Sh#t. And yes I do and will watch them all – Damn you Chris Hardwick lol

    Speaking of Gough and Miller, any chance of a SHANNARA renewal?

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Happy the show got renewed! Season 1 was really good!

  7. APFW says:

    I am pleased, the martial arts scenes were entertaining. I was wondering why the renewal announcement was not forthcoming.

    • JPB says:

      My guess is they never dreamed it would be as successful as it was this is why we have to wait until 2017 so they were definitely. unprepared

  8. Ray Watts says:

    Even tho we have to wait till 2017. I will be there to look at season 2. I love this series and can not wait.

  9. Kris Meachum says:

    This series needs to stay on the air!!! There is no other show like this one. The story is great, the martial arts are amazing!! Great acting and even better cinematography. I’m glad to hear it’s coming just wish it was sooner. I hope it stays on!!

  10. cleetus says:

    I can’t wait, awesome news!

  11. safistikaytdlayd says:

    YES!!! great show and great acting!!! The fight scenes are mind blowing!!! As many other commenters stated the cinematography is awesome!!! Can’t wait!!! Is AMC playing S1 on their site?

  12. tvjunkie says:

    Keeping it off the air for more than a year is a good way to tank the ratings for season 2

  13. The general says:

    Great. I can’t wait to see Wu kicking more ass
    Great show

  14. Ronin says:

    The first season was so intriguing. I don’t get truly excited to watch many shows so I am glad it has been renewed. I do wish it was returning sooner but it will give me something to look forward to. I would like for Chris do Talking Badlands, if that’s possible. I like the guest appearances on his show, and I like the discussions analyzing their characters. Let’s be honest, there are some fantastic characters on this show.

  15. erick joseph says:

  18. David says:

    So, did season 2 start already? If so no notice of it on AMC! Or if not til 2017 as suggested below , why do we have to wait so long? and lastly AMC has wierd formatting, great show but crappy network!

  19. THANK YOU AND!!! Super excited!!!!

  22. Michael says:

I hope the next series just as good as when it first started I am definitely a Critic but I really like this show and so does my dad he’s the one that peep me up on it and as far as the martial arts I’ve been around martial arts almost all my life since I was growing up and the choreography for into the Badlands definitely definitely superb

  23. scott olson says:

  43. Roland Walker says:

    Into the badlands was, in my opinion, one of the best shows on tv. Why is it taking another year to start the 2nd season? Sorry, but this sucks!! it was just starting to answer questions about the mysterious black eyed bad asses. or raise more.

  44. Maria says:

    2017 really for the 2nd series. Wow! But I cannot wait!

  45. Ed says:

    I guess we have to wait. The shows really good 10 episodes that’s kind of short.

  46. Baron kwabe says:

  47. Danny Obi says:

    Is super fantastic into the badland. I love it and can’t just wait for season.
