• Teasing Season 3 to Variety (which also showcases a gallery of new photos), Alfred Gough enthuses, “The most exciting thing about this season is that everything in the Badlands is bigger.

• Daniel Wu tells TV Overmind that, at the start of Season 3, Sunny, “from a physical standpoint, he’s definitely at a low, he’s much more rugged and just ripped up and beat up than before; he’s depressed, he’s kind of an alcoholic, he’s been drinking.”
• Speaking about the show’s diversity and how martial arts is a great equalizer, Alfred Gough explains, “Women, men, and different body types can do it. For us, it was very important to have that in this world,” Deadline reports.
