It has been almost two months and still the fate of AMC’s action-adventure drama series “Into the Badlands” Season 2 is uncertain. Though the showrunners and actors have expressed their interest in carrying the series forward, there has been no official confirmation yet.
Daniel Wu, who plays the show’s protagonist — Sunny, had earlier posted on his Facebook page that the show had been renewed for a second season. However, the post was deleted soon.
In a Reddit AMA, Wu stated that he “hopes” the show is brought back for a second season, confirming the rumours that the next season was still under development.
Alfred Gogh and Miles Millar, the creators of the show, have discussed their plans on how the story will continue further once Season 2 is confirmed.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Gough said that a person who has a history and career as Sunny’s is surely inhibited by a dark and heavy soul, particularly due to the guilt of killing so many people in the past.
“I think Veil does want to believe in the best in Sunny. Even with her doubts and everything Quinn planted, she wants to believe that he can change and I think she’s the light in his life that can give him hope that he can change,” Gough said.
Though the creators don’t know whether AMC will give a nod to “Into the Badlands” Season 2 or not, they have high hopes as Season 1 has garnered praises from both fans and critics, with some of them claiming that it is one of the most epic fantasy drama series in recent times.
As reported by TV Series Finale, there has been no official confirmation from AMC regarding “Into the Badlands” Season 2 yet. Nevertheless, given that the series had a viewership of about 4 million, there is a significant possibility that the fans will get to see the next phase of Sunny’s and MK’s (Aramis Knight) journey.
