AMC’s action-adventure television series INTO THE BADLANDS is coming back with its second season after a successful six-episode season 1. The first look was recently released showing the character Sunny, played by Daniel Wu, and with a tagline “not a clipper any more”.
Lots of people were actually clueless about the premier time of season 2. However, as per reports, the sole reason for the delay is that it’s going to be a long season of 10+ episodes, and to make such a long series is like producing two feature length movies. Again a series with so many action sequences and a captivating story certainly asks for more from the makers to ensure another wonderful season.
Nevertheless, it’s all exciting as the wait is finally going to over. Moreover, with more number of episodes, we can expect more action, story and even new characters in the territory of the Badlands.
In the first season, we were introduced with a human civilization divided into seven rival communities lead by powerful Barons. Each Baron draws his/her power by employing a very loyal army of trained assassins known as Clippers. Sunny is considered as the ruthless and lethal clipper working as the trusted advisor of Baron Quinn.

For decades Quinn remained unchallenged as the most powerful Baron, but a new Baron named The Window went all out in picking a fight with Quinn. Head clipper Sunny was doing all his best to deliver a fitting reply.
One day, Sunny rescued a teenage boy M.K. who nearly survived a deadly ambush. As Sunny took the boy inside the fort, he came to know the secret behind the boy which is the sole reason The Widow has her eye on him. Together they choose a life that brought many challenges.
In Season 1 we also saw the personal life of Sunny with a doctor named Veil; and the complicated life of Baron Quinn with his two wives as well as the not so known fact that he is now suffering a deadly illness with a brain tumour. As Quinn is no longer that powerful, and as Sunny tries to move away from the Badlands, Quinn has to forge alliance with other Barons to defeat The Widow.
All in all, Season 1 of Into the Badlands has been really interesting not just with its extensive action sequences, but also an interlinked storyline that connects every major characters. If we’ve to summarize the whole story behind the series in just few lines, it must be: the story of a great warrior and a mysteriously powerful young boy who met to embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find their past and reason of existence.
