Where is Into the Badlands filmed? Updated locations for Season 3

Into the Badlands where filmed
The AMC post-apocalyptic Kung Fu western is back for the third season with new and exciting locations. The series have in many aspects, a very original point of view. Into the Badlands puts together surprisingly well a mash-up world of neo-feudal lords. The characters fight in elaborate action scenes with swords instead of guns, all seasoned with a touch of obsolete technology steampunk.

The cast is lead by talented martial arts practitioner Daniel Wu (who recently starred in the latest Tomb Raider movie along with Alicia Vikander). A darker reincarnation of Ralph Macchio in 84' Karate Kid, Aramis Knight, plays a lad who gets into berserker mode when he's bleeding. The comedian Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) was a refreshing addition to the show in season 2.

To create this peculiar retro-futuristic land, Into the Badlands was filmed around New Orleans and Louisiana. From season two, the production moved to Ireland. We will update regularly the filming locations for this new bunch of 16 episodes, as the season advances (please scroll down for season 3 locations).
