Where was Into the Badlands filmed? Updated & Complete Filming Locations Guide

Posted by
The AMC post-apocalyptic Kung Fu western has 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 steampunk technology.

To create this peculiar retro-futuristic land, Into the Badlands was filmed in and around New Orleans in Louisiana. From season two, the production moved to Ireland.

Into the Badlands Season 4 Locations

The cast is lead by talented martial arts practitioner Daniel Wu (who recently starred in the latest Tomb Raider movie along with Alicia Vikander).

Aramis Knight plays a lad who gets into berserker mode when he's bleeding, a kind of darker reincarnation of Ralph Macchio in 84'Karate Kid (nowadays a member of the Cobra Kai house). The comedian Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) was a refreshing addition to the show in season 2.
