supergirl renewed for season 2

The television landscape is a harsh landscape littered with broken dreams and the bodies of cancelled shows. Sure, we’re living through a TV golden age where it’s literally impossible to keep up with everything that is worth your time, but that doesn’t make the whole industry any less forgiving. There’s almost too much good stuff out there – a show that doesn’t strike a chord with audiences feels doomed.

So when you look at the news of Supergirl and Into the Badlands each receiving a second season, you can’t help but consider the context. Sophomore seasons were never a sure thing for either of these shows, but their networks obviously view them as strong long-term investments.

The jury’s still out on whether AMC’s Into the Badlands looks cool or cheesy (actually, it kind of seems like it’s both), but the one thing we can be sure of is that it won’t skimp on the action.

Into the Badlands trailer

Do you prefer Westerns or martial arts actioners? Gritty dramas or medieval fantasies? The antebellum South or steampunk dystopias? Whatever your genre preference, you’ll probably find a bit of it in Into the Badlands, AMC’s completely batshit-looking new drama.

Loosely based on the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu as Sunny, a skilled fighter who takes a mysterious young boy (played by the majestically named Aramis Knight) under his wing in a land ruled by feudal barons.

Into the Badlands teaser

One of AMC’s fall 2015 shows is Into the Badlands, a series starring Daniel Wu in a story that loosely adapts the ages-old Chinese story Journey to the West.

Check out the first Into the Badlands teaser below. Read More »
