The worst news imaginable has come for Into the Badlands fans. It looks like season 3 will be the series’ last.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Into the Badlands, and it turns out all that silence didn’t bode well for us.
According to TVLine, Into the Badlands will conclude after season 3 has finished airing its final eight episodes.
Season 3, episode 9 will air on Sunday, March 24 at 10:00 p.m. ET after a new episode of The Walking Dead. Episode 10 will air the following night and the show will continue Monday evenings at the same time until the season concludes with episode 16.
We also have a synopsis for the second half of the season:
As we enter the final chapter of Into the Badlands, an imprisoned Bajie warns Sunny that Pilgrim can’t be trusted. But with his son’s life on the line, Sunny struggles with his decision to help Pilgrim unlock the Meridian Chamber. Meanwhile, M.K., still reeling from the revelation that Sunny killed his mother, is hell-bent on revenge. Kidnapped by The Master, the Widow is forced to confront her past. Moon meanwhile races to save Lydia from impending death after she risked her life for his on the battlefield. As the last episodes unfold, long buried secrets will be revealed, new alliances will be forged, and the saga will climax in an epic battle to end all battles.
Into the Badlands is really pushing the fact that this is the conclusion to the series, so here’s to hoping we can get a satisfying ending that will answer more questions than it raises.
TVLine also shares four new stills from the back half of the season:
As disappointing as this news certainly is, at least we have a premiere date for the final half of Into the Badlands season 3.
Here are some reactions to the cancellation from the series’ cast and crew:

Good news always comes with bad news. First the good: #IntoTheBadlands returns. The final episodes premiere on @AMC_TV on March 24. The bad: after these 8 episodes air that will be the end of the show. The bad is obviously a lot worse than the good, especially for all of you who have supported with so much passion over the past three seasons. Thank you for your support. We always had you in mind while making this as we wanted to give you the best martial arts action show to ever appear on tv and I think we achieved that. But that wouldn’t have been possible without you! So thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I was going to drop that season 3 returns 3/24 but it seems news has been released that season 3 will be #IntoTheBadlands last.
I’m really sad at this decision. An incredible group of people made our show both infront and behind the camera and I’m sad that’s that.

I was hoping for better news but it wasn’t meant to be. Thanks to every fan, our incredible cast, tireless crew & the badass group of writers that fought the good fight for this show every day in the writers room. This is part of the job. 1/ #IntoTheBadlands
