AMC’s ‘Into the Badlands’ to Bow in November Behind ‘Walking Dead’

AMC will use megahit “The Walking Dead” to help launch its six-episode martial-arts drama “Into the Badlands,” the network announced Friday at its TCA session in Beverly Hills.

Into the Badlands,” which tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Daniel Wu) and a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight) who embark on a spiritual journey across a dangerous land, will bow at 10 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in the timeslot usually occupied by “Talking Dead.” The post-show discussion series will air at 11 p.m. for its final three weeks this fall.

AMC effectively used the mid-season premiere of “Walking Dead” in February to open “Better Call Saul,” which went on to perform well on Mondays.

The series premiere will coincide with AMC’s newest movie event, “AMC FightFest,” a two-week martial arts movie marathon beginning Monday, Nov. 2, and running through Friday, Nov. 13. Some of the most iconic films in the history of the martial arts genre will air at 8 p.m. each weeknight.
