• io9 is hopeful that Into the Badlands “kickstarts a new chapter in genre television.”
• Geeks of Doom reports that, at New York Comic-Con, Daniel Wu said of Sunny, “As the season goes on, you see him changing as a person, and that’s what really sold me. It’s not the martial arts or cool stunts, but the development of a character.” IGN was also at the convention.
• “With the violence you also need the philosophy of martial arts to balance that out or else it just becomes all about the violence,” Daniel Wu says of Into the Badlands, according to International Business Times.
