Into The Badlands is based on a 16th Century novel by Chinese author Wu Cheng’ En.
The show is set in a post-apocalyptic world roughly 500 years after a devastating war that has left populations devastated and in anarchic chaos.
The Badlands of the title is a region somewhere in the former US, which is now being governed by various barons who trade with each other if only to keep the peace.
While guns have been shunned, people now rely on more medieval weapons of choice for defence.
However, electricity and cars have managed to survive the fallout.
What will happen in Into the Badlands season 3?
The third outing is set six months after the events of the season two finale and will see the characters plunged into more peril as the Badlands descends into war.
A synopsis from AMC reads: “Season 3 of Into the Badlands finds Sunny 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 and journey back into the Badlands, where the Widow and Baron Chau are entrenched in a drawn-out war that has destabilised the entire region.
“No longer supported by Tilda or Waldo, the Widow must find new allies in Lydia and in Nathaniel Moon — the former regent who lost his hand to Sunny and Bajie in Season two.
“But when a mysterious nomadic leader called Pilgrim 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.”
