NEW YORK (Heartland Newsfeed) — In an announcement made Saturday during the winter press tour for the Television Critics Association, AMC Television announced that two of their dramas, “Into The Badlands” and “The Son”, will be coming to an end on the cable network.

“Into The Badlands” will end their three-season run when the martial arts drama returns March 24 following “The Walking Dead” at 10 p.m. Eastern. The show will resume with its second episode airing March 25 and every Monday night at 10 p.m. until the end of the series.

The AMC Studios series stars Daniel Wu and Nick Frost and was created by executive producers and writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, with Wu being among the cast of co-executive producers.

The second and final season of “The Son”, which stars Pierce Brosnan, will kick off on April 27 at 9 p.m. Eastern.

While AMC Studios and AMC Television is closing the book on both programs, the unpredictable entertainment industry has led to the purchasing of rights and relaunching the series of other television programs — like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was cancelled by Fox Television and was picked up by Comcast’s NBC — as an extension from the storylines. Only time will tell, much like the other television programs which have been cancelled and given a second chance on television or other platforms like Netflix.
