AMC’s new martial arts drama series INTO THE BADLANDS will premiere Sunday, November 15th at 10:00 pm PST. In a land controlled by feudal barons, INTO THE BADLANDS tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Daniel Wu) and a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight) who embark on a spiritual journey across a dangerous land. The six-part series is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale JOURNEY TO THE WEST.
