into the badlands
Fans of Daniel Wu and “Into the Badlands” have been rallying on social media to save the show after its cancellation at AMC.
The martial arts series, which first aired in November 2015, will end after the second half of its third season, which begins March 24.
AMC’s “Into the Badlands” is only halfway through its second season, but the network has already renewed the series for an expanded 16-episode third season set to premiere in 2018.
The hit martial arts drama, starring Daniel Wu who also serves as one of the show’s executive producers, is averaging a total of 3.6 million viewers with 2.2 million between the ages of 25 and 54, according to Nielsen live-plus-three ratings.
Daniel Wu, who plays Lu Ren in “Tomb Raider”, has been making headlines for his hit AMC martial arts drama “Into the Badlands”. The great storytelling, drama, and beautifully choreographed fight scenes have created a legion of fans all over the world.
Wu is far from a brand new star. He’s been in the entertainment business for decades and achieved stardom in Hong Kong before ever setting foot in Hollywood. However, acting was not something Wu initially wanted to pursue.
