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:
AMC's 'Into The Badlands' Season 3 Premiere: How Did Last Season End? - via Ibtimes
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.

Quinn was finally fatally skewered by Sunny's love and baby mama Veil (Madeleine Mantock) -- a move that also cost Veil her life. That left Sunny to raise their infant, Henry, and left the Badlands in turmoil amid a power struggle between Quinn's successor, The Widow (Emily Beecham), and her one remaining opponent, Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura).

The Tilda/Odessa relationship, that's another one we wanted to see, “How does that play out?” When you're in this world and you're at war, and you have agendas and things like that. It's just trying to play those things as honestly as you can. What would these people do in this situation? What are their points of view? Where do they have different points of view? And what does that do to the relationships? We really try to explore all of that within the insanity of our show.
'Into the Badlands' Season 3 Review: Martial Arts Drama Goes Deeper With the Mythology, But Remains Bonkers Fun - via Indiewire
The tradition of killing lady love interests extends beyond comic books and Christopher Nolan movies to the kung-fu genre, so it’s not shocking to see it here, but it still casts a shadow over the early episodes of the season, as Sunny copes with single fatherhood.
This is a show that is unique to television right now. Its combination of swordplay, martial arts and “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” leaping about and scaling walls may not play for some people, but those who have bought in are treated to a visually delightful world each week. “Into The Badlands” delivers the action we enjoy, but the storytelling has been a nice plus throughout. That which would seem to be impossible or improbable in the normal television world is absolutely doable in the Badlands. And <...> - by ATVandCity - Season 3 [John Baker]
Here's the main idea of this review, put inside a delicate yet easy-to-understand nutshell: I give a sh*t about this show now, and you should too. It's worth the investment. Its characters will grow on you. And by the time you get to this season, you'll be glad you stuck with it. That, folks, is the sign of a worthwhile television program. In a way, "Enter the Phoenix" delivers itself as a prologue to the season, a quiet reflection on what has happened and a glimpse into the future at what's on the horizon.

The show doesn’t wallow too much in his grief, as Season 3 seems poised to expand some of the background mythology of the series, specifically around the legend of Azra, the mysterious city that might be the salvation of this broken world — especially thanks to a new clan, led by Cressida (“Orange is the New Black’s” Lorraine Toussaint) and Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay), which offers up new insight into what might have led to the destruction of our society.
