NEW YORK, March 8 (UPI) -- AMC says it has renewed its martial-arts drama Into the Badlands for a 10-episode second season.
The ratings hit is to return in 2017.
"With its deep dive into authentic martial arts, the visually stunning Into the Badlands proved to be unlike anything else on television," Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said in a statement Tuesday.
"Co-creators and showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar, along with a talented team of producers, cast and crew, brought us an artfully crafted series. We're eager to return to the world of barons and blades and spend even more time with these compelling and evolving characters across an expanded second season."
"We can't imagine any other network bold enough to embrace a show like this," added Gough and Millar in their own joint statement. "We look forward to continuing the journey into the Badlands!"
Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu, Marton Csokas, Aramis Knight, Oliver Stark, Emily Beecham, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Ally Ioannides and Madeleine Mantock.
