AMC’s ‘Into the Badlands’ Gets April Season Premiere Date
Rejoice, Badlanders! AMC has set the date for season three of Into the Badlands. The series will return on Sunday, April 22nd at 10 PM. We know so far that we’re getting some new cast members and the season will focus, in part, on Sunny raising his newborn son, Henry, after Veil’s death.
From the first-look photos released by AMC, we know that Emily Beecham, Ally Ioannides, and Aramis Knight will return as The Widow, Tilda, and M.K. As for new characters, we know that Babou Ceesay (Guerilla, A.D. The Bible Continues, ) will be playing a character named Pilgrim.
Veteran actress Lorraine Toussaint will be playing a character named Cressida. Toussaint’s long list of projects includes roles on Rosewood, The Fosters, Selma, and Orange Is The New Black. With almost 96 credits to her name, her casting adds some serious acting talent to the Into the Badlands cast. You can see the first-look image of her and Ceesay’s characters below.
Orla Brady will return as Lydia, who now has lost her son and estranged husband. Nick Frost will also return as Bajie, who was in bad shape the last time we saw him. I’m excited to see what comes of the mysterious message he sent out in the final moments of season two.
What storylines do you want to see play out in season three of Into the Badlands?
