AMC has released a new behind-the-scenes video for the upcoming third season of Into the Badlands. In the video, the cast and creators talk about expanding the world of the Badlands by introducing a new nemesis, whether Sunny can escape his past as a killer, and how all the characters are trying to build a better future.
In the new season, Sunny (Daniel Wu) is living off the grid, trying to take care of his infant son since the death of Veil. But when the boy contracts a mysterious illness, Sunny must team up with Bajie (Nick Frost) and return to the Badlands. But The Widow (Emily Beecham) and Baron Chau (Eleanor Matsuura) are locked into an ongoing war that is tearing apart the region. The Widow is not longer backed by Waldo (Stephen Lang) or Tilda (Ally Ioannides), forcing her to make new allies with Lydia (Orla Brady) and Nathaniel Moon (Sherman Augustus). And all of this gets turned on its head when a nomadic leader called Pilgrim (Babou Ceesay) arrives to restore Azra and bring about a new era of peace, forcing old enemies to ally against this new threat and save the Badlands.
Joining the cast this season are Lorraine Toussaint (Orange Is the New Black) as Cressida, Babou Ceesay (Guerilla) as Pilgrim, Sherman Augustus (Westworld) as Moon; Ella-Rae Smith (Clique) as Nix; Lewis Tan (Iron Fist) as Gaius; and Dean-Charles Chapman (Game of Thrones) as Castor. Returning cast members include Wu, Beecham, Ioannides, Brady, and Aramis Knight.
Into the Badlands season 3 debuts April 22nd on AMC.
