AMC’s renewal for Into the Badlands Season 3 came in the middle of season two. The network cited an average viewership of 3.6 million viewers per episode, with 2.1 million coming from the adults ages 25-54 demographic, also touting the series as the #4 ranked scripted drama on cable, only behind The Walking Dead, FX’s American Horror Story and Fear the Walking Dead, making it an AMC-dominant dominant top 5. As Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios expresses with enthusiasm:
Violent Into the Badlands returns to AMC today - via Arkansasonline
I'm hard-pressed to think of a more violent series on television. Even AMC's two Walking Dead series ameliorate the violence by having most of it be against already dead zombies. Still, when the violence slops over onto living beings we care about, it can be tough to stomach.

The leadership positions are all basically women, with the exception of when Pilgrim rolls into town at the end of the episode. But, even then, he's got a very strong priestess Cressida with him, who's sort of his strategist he relies on. What's interesting about the Widow/Chau relationship is [that] you're going to find out through the course of the season that it goes much deeper, and there's a lot of personal animosity and feelings wrapped up with the goals of the Widow wanting to free the Badlands, and Chau wanting the Badlands to basically go back to the way they were.

Before Sunny could do anything about the ultimatum, Veil killed both herself and Quinn. Though there’s nothing he could do about Veil’s death, Sunny still had his son, Henry, to protect and look after. At the end of the episode, we once again saw an injured Bajie, who was now riding Sunny’s motorcycle towards a tall satellite-type tower. Once inside, he used his Azra compass as a key to activate some sort of signal. What the signal was for and who will hear it--that’s what the new season will get into.

There is no way to recommend jumping into “Badlands” with Season 3 — the season premiere makes no effort whatsoever to re-establish the characters or scenario for new audiences. But fans who either kept up with the series during its run on AMC or discovered it on Netflix can rest assured that the narrative continues on in a relatively seamless manner.
It’s tough to say that this show has a lead character as it is much like Game of Thrones in that there are so many moving parts and any one of them could be taken out at any time. The open ended aspect of all the characters keeps the story fresh and exciting from where I’m sitting. The steam punk feel of <...> - by R&R - Season 2 [Mike Miro]
But the important part is that Veil is back in our lives. With a baby…boy? Wait…who the fuck said…Quinn? Fucking Quinn still breathing? Sunny done killed the population of Vermont and he don’t know a kill stroke when he swings it? Gotdamn man. Things are as bad as they’ve ever been.

World-building is another area where Badlands excels. Instead of yet another take on the played-out “white billionaire playboy superhero” trope, Badlands is set in a weird post-apocalyptic future, mixing styles from the Antebellum South, feudal Japan, and a Mad Max-style wasteland. Added to that mix is an order of <...> - by The Verge [Chaim Gartenberg]
Partnerships built first on antagonism have their place in stories like this and Sunny’s burgeoning relationship with Bajie appears ready to travel down that exact road. It’s a welcome change to the routine of the show, too, as Frost’s Fallstaff-like character is both a treacherous ruffian and a welcome comedic <...> - by ScreenRant [Kevin Yeoman]
The series hasn't immediately shed all the flaws of the first season. The performances are still fairly hit and miss. Wu is predictably dependable as Sunny, and he immediately forms a tight rapport with his new sidekick. Wu opts for the silent approach here, which works well given how far the character has fallen and <...> - by IGN Movies [Jesse Schedeen]
