A drama series airing on cable has been picked up for another season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that AMC has renewed “Into the Badlands” for season two.
“Picked up straight to series in 2014, the show from ‘Smallville’s’ Al Gough and Miles Millar will be back with 10 episodes after launching its six-episode run in the plumb post-‘The Walking Dead’ slot,” THR reports. “‘Into the Badlands’ will not return until 2017, AMC announced Tuesday.”
The post-apocalyptic martial arts series reportedly had the No. 3 cable launch of 2015, with 8.2 million total viewers and 5.1 million viewers in the key 18-49 demo for the series premiere in November, based on Live+3 figures. “The strong premiere ranked behind fellow AMC launches with ‘Walking Dead’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ off-shoots ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ (No. 1) and ‘Better Call Saul’ (No. 2), respectively,” THR notes.
