Where is Into the Badlands filmed?

The AMC post-apocalyptic Kung Fu western is back for the second season. The series have in many aspects, a very original point of view. Into the Badlands put together surprisingly well a mash-up world of neo-feudal lords. The characters fight in elaborate action scenes with swords instead of guns, enhanced with a touch of obsolete technology steampunk.

The cast is lead by talented martial arts practitioner Daniel Wu, and the reincarnation of Ralph Macchio in 84' Karate Kid Aramis Knight, playing a lad who gets into berserker mode when he's bleeding.

To create this retro-futuristic land, Into the Badlands was filmed around New Orleands and Louisiana. However, for the second season the production moved to Ireland. We will be updating regularly the filming locations for this new bunch of 10 episodes, as the season advances.
