This stunning AMC tv series follows the search for enlightenment by a man and a young boy caught up in a war between rival factions fighting for control of a post-apocalyptic world. The series was cancelled by AMC after 3 seasons. The series cancellation seems to be the result of declining ratings and a loss of interest.

Promotional material for Into the Badlands took a serious nosedive during seasons 2 and 3.
